If it's not aggressive enough for you (which may be fair), then why? What about the numbers don't work?
Not sure about that, their share in real dollars goes up every year, but their share goes down percentage wise based on projected numbers.

While it might look good on paper, the fact is, you can't count on revenues to increase in the first couple years considering they stand to lose close to half this one. So in year 2 of the deal the players percentage of revenues will be quite a bit higher than the previous 57%.

I'd like to see them just freeze the cap at 69-70M until that number represents a 50-50 split.
