Not exactly. Hot dogs were the fun example of why not. Basically things which cost more than 57% of their final price to put in front of the consumer (us). Owners would be foolish to include revenues that were guaranteed to lose them money; complete disincentive to chase those revenues. Part of pre-season is in HRR, but there are a boatload of deductions for preseason where I would desperately care to see the reasoning. Playoffs are included, but players are paid a pittance for the playoffs ($6.5mil divvied up across all playoff players). Essentially 57% (or whatever %) of playoff revenue is divvied up among players on all teams in addition to $6.5mil to players on playoff teams.
I am speaking from the perspective of someone who would want only reg season rev % for all players and all playoff rev % to go to only players in the playoffs. If you asked me for an ideal system, I would go directly to a direct pay for performance system with base salaries for participation and some fixed seniority increments. I literally want the players to directly compete for their pay.
