Just thinking out of the box here, but if the players' concern is the next CBA and being forced into continuous claw-backs and the owners just wanted the player's share to be a percentage tied to HRR, why not put in a clause that players share will be held at 50% in subsequent CBAs?

No matter what happens to the economic landscape, a 50/50 split will always be fair. It'll address both sides' concerns. And best of all, it'll mean a major stumbling block is already settled for future negotiations.

I know this isn't how things work (historically) and it's unlikely to ever fly, but you can't blame me for trying, can you?
