Frankly I think 50/50 is incredibly good for the players.
So you want the players to fold because they're going to lose anyway? I mean, I don't suppose you'll find anyone to disagree with you there, but this is a broad spectrum. The players will come out with less, yes, but the idea is that them not signing the worst of the offers, eventually they'll get a much more palatable offer.
I don't think the players can "win" either, but I do think that they can get the best deal possible.
It just comes off as selfish of you to ask that the players just go ahead and accept it already so that there will be hockey.
