Of course they could earn that back from negotiating, but they will lose opportunity costs if they don't get it done soon.
The players were prepared to lose money to get a fair deal, I doubt anything has changed in this regard.
While today's proposal may offer some encouraging news, the devil is in the details, not solely based on a 50-50 split.
IMO the 82 game schedule is nothing more than the owners attempting to minimize the damage they caused with the lockout. It really has no relevancy to the issues facing the players.
