I don't see a single proposal where the players aren't getting more than 50% over the next 5 years. The lowest the players get is 51.5% on any of those proposals. Which sounds "close" until you figure in the added benefit of the first couple years it's all at 54% or 55%.
Fehr states he is "combining" the owners desire to get down to 50% with the players desire to honor all existing contracts.
Yeah.... you eventually get down to 50% just in time to have the CBA expire and we can do this all over again.
If the players want their existing contracts honored, they should take less than 50% in future years to make up for it.
