That massive difference is not so bad then, no?
Both the owners and players benefit from increased total revenue. It is true that due to growth the players have 80% more since the 2005 lockout, and the owners have 180% more.

What changes in the negotiations, however, is how much goes to the players and how much to the owners.
In a free market, players get 72%.
Last season, players got 57%.
Now, owners are demanding a reduction to 50%.
