as for the 50% thingie, dont worry, your boss will hire a competent enough accountant to make the numbers work, he'll show you that by cutting your salary you both will be at 50/50
No I never said an owner can cut the salaries just because he feels like it. I said it based on the 50-50 revenue. I didn't think I actually had to explain this to you.

I'm quite sure you could take that to court, and why wouldn't you? Further more, you would argue that you should be paid the $50k a year until your contract is up and at that point a new contract be negotiated.
Actually it's not like that at all. The CBA came to an end. When that happens, all contracts are void until the signing of a new one. Players are getting zero dollars other than signing bonuses.

Salary reduction is not uncommon btw.
