I'm 70% on owners side in this.

Now get it done.
I don't understand what you mean by the bolded. I'm on nobody's side, both sides make sense to me. I think the real crux of the matter is that there are too many teams in failed locations and the CBA run-around will not stop until that stops. I think the players know it too, their position will only get worse and worse as these few teams accumulate more debt due to not being economically viable.

Also to be considered is that it is much more difficult to restructure debt these days and some of these clubs will no doubt have to do it if this continues. So will the players. There is no telling how long this will last nor how soon it will end. Rather than take another haircut the players and non-revenue rich owners both decided to take their stand. No fun for anyone.
