Alright, I need some help. THIS MEANS YOU MOUSER. haha
In the now infamous PROPOSAL NUMBER THREE (dun! dun! dunnnnn!)
The players suggest all existing contracts are honored while all future contracts are factored into the fifty fifty split effective immediately. Makes sense.
I guess the idea is that year one puts the player share at 56-57% and year six is probably somewhere around 50-51% overall. Those are pretty obvious, and I totally get that. What I really have no idea about is what years two, three, four and five would look like. At least roughly. Do we go from 56.5% (*ish) in year one to something like 55% in year two or is it more drastic like 52% in year two? How long does it take to get at least reasonably close to 50.5%(ish)?
Also, how would this effect the salary cap limits? Is it as simple an impact as the overall percentage or does this get muddied by "segregated" salaries?
