How many growth industries pay their employees north of 50% of revenues? You can't compare pro sports with any other industries, it just doesn't work.

And I'm not saying Fehr is right or he's wrong: I'm saying that yesterday I mentioned there was no chance Fehr would accept the deal based on the precedent he's set for himself. And lo and behold, he lived up to his track record.
