I'm not asking the players to take a beating financially while the owners make better profits.

I'm asking the top 40% (higher-contract) players to come down on the unrealistic money they are earning now, while the 10-12 richest owners share the wealth more (e.g. Take in lower profits) so the league can function. That's not too much to ask. There will be a much smaller pie to cut up, if the greedy richest franchise owners, and the greedy players don't decide it's better to be less greedy.
