I think the length of the CBA is crucial to owners. Make whole has them making payments in years 2-5, so a CBA that lets the players opt out after year 6 gives the owners one full season of 50/50. Obviously the players deserve the money they were promised, but it stands to reason if the owners are giving more money up front that they would want additional years to reap the benefit of 50/50.
