I fully support the owners of Chicago, Toronto, New York, Montreal, etc. sharing their profits with the poorer teams to help sustain them. If they don't want to do that, they should contract a few teams then because the players aren't going to pay for it. Did the players get a share of the expansion fees when these teams joined the league? No, they didn't. But now they should take less money because things didn't go according to plan for the owners? Well, they actually are willing to take less money to help out. They are not fighting to keep the 57% they had. But not only do the owners want to keep their own money, they want the players to take less to fix the problems of the weak owners but that's not even enough, they want to dictate the terms too. They can go to hell, that's bull ****.
