One of these two provisions is going to be altered. That's how negotiations work. But the discussion is no longer about the salary roll-back. It's about conditions. To insinuate otherwise, or that the players have made NO concessions is either ignorant at best, or dishonest/stupid at worst.
The thing is, even if players have agreed to 50% of HRR, it's only for one year.
After that, if the league loses money, with the 2) you listed, they would be entitled to the same salary as the previous year, so, all the loss would come out of the owners pockets.
