Maybe I'm just jaded and/or ignorant but this latest "50/50" offer seems more like a really clever PR grab, than anything else. Last I checked these guys couldn't even agree on what the definition of HRR actually was or what 50% even meant. Makes sense for the BOG, though. Their first offer was seen as more of a slap in the face than a good faith offer and the latest one smacks of a bully offer, really. It looks GREAT in a headline. Fifty/fifty just sounds so reasonable, doesn't it? All anyone is talking about is that the owners really want 82 games. If the players don't work something out based on this offer they are going to look REALLY bad REGARDLESS of whether it's actually a good offer, or not. Public perception is definitely now on the side of the owners.
