Remember their best proposal so far says they want all promised money and want the extra out of the owners share. even at 50 50 the owners will only get around an exta 200 million at current revenue per season. if for some reason revue dropped 400 mill then this windfall would evaporate

Players would still split 1.9 bill even with a 400 million loss of rev

A 50/50 split will help owners alot but it wont make them filthy rich. it might not even get them out ofred. meanwhile a 50/50 split still gives the players over2 mill Average salary... But again a true 50/50 hasnt been offered yet by the players
So you would propose no "make whole"? Using this rationale, of course.
