Very true. I know the owners would reject it out of hand since they'd never want to lose their leverage to negotiate and craft a better deal going forward.

But you're right... it'd sure highlight the players' claim. It's hard to argue 50% of an agreed-upon HRR definition would ever be unfair. How could the owners really argue? No, it wouldn't be an amount they could control, but it's a percentage, so they're protected.
