It's possible, but I guess that's why CBAs have term limits: no one knows what's going to happen to the economy over the next 6-8 years. If revenues do grow more symmetrically, and all the teams are making out like bandits, it could be the players asking for a greater share the next time around.

Time will tell, but I'm hoping that 50/50 turns out to be a split that keeps the league competitive and healthy and the players happy. Maybe they'll just be able to extend the deal the next time around and we won't have to go through this again.
