That's why I brought up the middle east, because I heard such nonsensical things like ''they're fighting for rights''.
It's truly ridiculous. That doesn't mean owners should take anything they want. But ya, players will keep making millions and remain rich. Owners outlast players in this league, by a lot, and they're the ones that pay that dishes out the cash, it's only logical for them to want a bigger piece of the pie and dictate things.
Yes because "buying a steak on saturday night" is what this is all about. Why don't they just settle for 60K a year? Surely they can buy a steak on that wage! You are one of the many bringing up the nonsensical things so ya people call BS on you.
Yes owners outlast players, good reason for the players to make a good chunk of the pie actually. That and the players are the only reason there is even a pie to begin with.
