That's only 100M
. But, the general schedule adds up OK.
I would prefer to see something else. I would prefer to see revenue sharing of this kind:
10% of gate receipts for each game to the road team. 10% of local TV contracts into a pool split evenly among all 30 teams.
I'm assuming that revenue sharing will continue to be funded from a variety of sources as it is now, including 50% of gate of playoff games, a cut of national TV revenues, and contribution from top 10 teams.
The bottom line on my above posts, however, as it relates to this thread is this: teams like the Coyotes are likely to receive $20 - $30 million in revenue sharing under the new CBA and that revenue sharing is likely to come with fewer strings attached such as meeting of performance targets. At least that appears to be the case if reports in the media on the current negotiations are correct.
