... pretty much. Is 50% even fair? If Im an owner in the mid-to-low-range within the league Im not thinkin so. If Im a player, absolutely. If Im an owner in the upper echelon's, Im disturbed about all the money Ive lost and will lose if the entire seasons wiped out. Ultimately with the huge disparities between the top & bottom rungs in our 30 team league, it's just not gonna matter. 50% is too much or too little depending on whatever step on the ladder you find yourself sitting. Record revenues does not equate to record profits. So lets say the players go for it, accept the rest of the contractual issues, well, Im afraid we'll be right back here again in 2017-18.
