I think if the PA proposed linkage and 50-50 the rest will be taken care of relatively easily.
they already did that....
The PA has to lower demands on make whole (smaller amount), lose out on some contracting rights (maybe gain on others?). I'm pretty sure they were already close on revenue sharing. Perhaps offer more years at 50/50 (7 + options?). Finally, drop the demand of player's share can not be lower than the year before. It shouldn't be a big deal, because that's accounting for less than 0% growth... not going to happen. But since it won't happen (or is very unlikely), it shouldn't be a problem to drop that demand.
