So when Gary Bettman said we are paying our players too much, we want to pay them 50% of HRR, he knowingly proposed a system that would fail?

In fact that first offer, the one that everyone laughed off as just an opening gambit from the owners, not one meant to be taken seriously, is in fact meant to be taken seriously. And if bettman locks the players out in 6 years to get 43%, or as some are calling it - the median revenue amount, fans are saying today that they will completely understand poor Bettmans need to do that and support him a 4th time in locking out the players? Even though he is knowingly asking for a deal now that will fail.
