Because Lars has so much experience with lockouts. If in the future, after this CBA, if the owners have faired much better than the players, then the players will strike. If the owners have not faired as well as the players, then the owners will have a lockout. Caving in will not restrict either from happening in the future.
Quoting Lars has zero bearing on anything, like you're grasping at straws. I am sure you are getting tired. Nothing will ever get resolved in this thread. Nobody is going to change their mind. Some players get too much money, some owners get too much money. Imposing a lower salary cap and having revenue sharing amongst the teams just makes for a stronger league and competitive teams. Which I am in favor. This isnt about work conditions, or pensions, or benefits, it is about how big a slice of the pie players think they deserve, they made it, but the owners have the recipe that makes it so delicious and the oven that it was cooked in. 50/50 will be the end result, but as long as the players want that high minimum amount, nothing is going to happen.
