Why do people assume all contracts have to be calculated under the same percentages?
That is not a 50/50 split. The split will still be 57:43 or somewhere close to that for the first year and whether that ever actually gets to 50/50 in any of the 5 years is completely up in the air. It's a bs proposal and anyone trying to call it 50/50 immediately is way off base. It's not a 50/50 split when the players will still be getting 56-57% of the revenues.
