Yeah, I'd have presumed this was common knowledge around here, but you can't just go substituting in "owners" for "players" in that comparison. Players make 1.9B, and owners make around $250M. Owners could go a long time before they lose as much as they're fighting for. That's why this was always going to be an owner's victory. They simply have more incentive to cancel games. Players have far too good of a deal to let this happen over such small differences in the proposals.
