Now, it is encouraging that the frameworks seem much closer and that they lowered their demand to get paid every penny of current contracts by $200MM (which is a out what's been lost due to cancelled games, right?). If they can cut a couple of the clauses that effectively neuter linkage, both sides should be able to start moving toward the middle and/or trading gives clause by clause.
What's wrong with that? I fail to see why they must instantly go to 50/50. I don't think its to outlandish that their % drops every year until its 50/50. And I don't see whats so wrong with Teams having to honor contracts that they offered. The NHL acts as tho 1/2 of their franchises are going to file for Burbank if they don't get 50/50 right now. If that was the case, why did they extend the last CBA 3 times after it expired?
