Besides, 'free-market' isn't all it's cracked up to be. Most of the English Premier League is losing money. Even UEFA is embracing 'fiscal responsibility'.
Well, for one, the Oilers are now a money making franchise.
For two, the level of the luxury sharing can be shifted/changed each CBA.
The point is that even with 50-50, two years from now, with the growth pattern we've seen, you're going to have businesses losing money.
Nothing in the owners' proposal fixes that.
So drop linkage. Drop the cap. Drop the floor. Stop forcing owners to lose money.
