The agreement allows 70 million cap for the first year. If revenues stay flat, the players will lose in escrow. But teams will be able to operate.

I imagine the counter offer from the PA will be something like 55-53x(length of agreement). This will lessen the impact from the first year, but based on this concession I think that no matter what the cap will be 70 million this season.
