It was revealed long ago that 18ish teams are profitable and only a handful are losing significant money.

The league overall is making money; more than ever, supposedly. There isn't enough revenue sharing to help spread that wealth to the struggling teams. Yeah, that sounds like communism...but in something like a sports league, there's a lot to be said for it. Look at the NFL, for instance.

Eh. It's the nature of negotiations between parties this large. There's going to be some buttholes.
