A % phase to 50% would be the logical solution, but neither side has broached the idea yet. Both going for broke (pun intended).
Phasing in a 50-50, while the existing contracts expire is what the players are looking for. That is, in effect, holding the existing contracts off of the calculation. THat is what both the NBA and NFL did. A 50-50, but with all existing contracts being completely honored and paid for by the owners.
