*IF* the players lose their full $1.8B in a full-season lockout this year, and *IF* the game is damaged to the point where their 50% for the next 6 or so years is less than $1.8B per, then I don't see how they can really claim to have won anything. It seems like by agreeing to even a gradually-decending drop to 50% they are not going to be able to break even. They've already accepted 50% on the face of it. I'm pro-player in general, but it's just so hard to see how they can win when the owners ultimately hold so much power. I guess it would have looked too weak if they didn't at least test the owners' resolve, but frankly I think it would have been pretty easy to predict the resolution level of the owners, especially from their confrontational initial offer.
