So the players aren't asking for something the owner's don't currently have, since they have money to spend after record year of revenue.
It doesn't seem to me like the players aren't looking to take from ALL of the owners.
I'm assuming you're referring to revenue sharing as only a select number of owners would contribute to that. However, players have also requested that teams upgrade in a number of areas such as comfort, travel, lodging, secondary medical opinions, etc. These are demands that were agreed upon by the league and EACH team will incur those service costs for their own set of players. Can you think of a scenario where that wouldn't apply to every owner in the league?
