I certainly agree with that.

1) For the umpteenth time, the players aren't "owed" anything. It's a new deal.

2) Leaving point 1 aside, you are forgetting the fact that the owners significantly upped revenue sharing in their last offer (from $140MM to $200MM). As Cotsonika points out in the article above, it's funny how how revenue sharing was such a big point a month ago and now no one's talking about it...
