And you think then they'd suddenly offer more than 50% of revenue? I doubt it. 50:50 split in the long rund is all but guaranteed. The only question left on the money side is how to get there. And if there's no season, then the transition gets easier with many contracts running out. And if there's no season next year either, there's not even a need for any transition anymore.
The players will in 3+ years get 50% of revenue regardless what happens. But they won't get a single dollar back for a canceled season.
