I think if the player salary was 57% of the median (multiplied by 30) as opposed to total revenue then the owners would jump all over that IMO.

Thanks guys. But that does seem a fair bit confusing. Haven't the players benefitted greatly from having a "linked" Cap?

Now of course, with what I'm suggesting about a Cap linked to the "median" of League revenue, and linked only to 50%, that would be a significant reduction for the players. But again, the players have benefitted from the link.

For the owners, they should be arguing for linkage that links to the League revenue median. For that players, if they believe that the median is going to reduce their salary potential too much, they should then be fighting to keep the 57% if it has to be based on the median rather than the average.
