Actually, if there's a lockout every five years, the average player will certainly lose 20% of his lifetime earnings.

I realize that the ratio will be lower or higher for many players, and that 20% is just an average, and that there's a correction because the average length of a career might change and you might have more players with shorter careers. Thank you for your pedantry ...
