The two sides aren't apart by all that much. What is it now ~180 million?
I suggest (and of course everyone will listen
)... that the "gap" amount be donated to charity on behalf of the owners and players.
Neither side is starving and both can live without that gap amount anyway. Plus you get goodwill from the fans and public for giving $180+ million yearly to a worthwhile charity or charities... cancer, heart, MS, etc.
That would immediately settle the dispute AND will likely get the fans back in the stands in maximum amounts instead of everyone viewing this battle as a war between two sides of spoiled, rich millionaires and billionaires (which it is).
Again... this proposal is way too logical and simple so it will never be accepted by either side.
