Why so much hatred and criticism towards the players?

And then there's this question: If there is no linkage, then what the hell would any % be based on, regardless if it's 57%, 50%, 47%, whatever?
Have to say though, that I'm not on the side of the players with this. Linkage is an excellent measuring stick. If the League is doing fine, revenue-wise, then all should benefit; if the League is struggling revenue-wise, then players salary increase potential should mirror that. I simply believe that, for the well-being of a greater number of teams, linkage should be to the revenue median, not the average.
