Look at those proposals again.

The players' share goes DOWN every season. The numbers you're quoting are based on the assumption that revenues will increase from season-to-season... Which is a fair assumption, no? Even the league's proposal isn't a request for a standard dollar amount to the players. It's a share as well, that would increase with league revenues JUST like the PA proposal.

If it's not aggressive enough for you (which may be fair), then why? What about the numbers don't work?
