The owners can hold their line falling back on these other sports and maybe they'll end up winning those percentages, but if I'm an NHL player I don't care about those percentages until my league falls BELOW them, then I use it to my advantage. Until then I go for every % point I can get.
whatever is available send me the key. I guess the owners want that number to be 50/50.
why are you being so wanted to continue to be a bit more than 50/50. so the question becomes is that agreeable or not.
