Where does all this "linkage is inviolate" stuff come from? The owners did not sit out a year last time to get linkage. They sat out to get "cost certainty" -- the salary cap.
In 04-05 the league's last and best offer before they dumped the season did not include "linkage". It included a hard cap ($42M, iirc)
to revenues. The percentage based system came later.
