They may still get there NBC deal paid out, but they will subsequentely lose that revenue in year 10 of the deal (or potentially if the deal is signed mid-season the not get a full payment for the season this year, meaning that they lose some TV revenue they are not getting back).
Not too mention any potential revenue they lose going forward from the backlash from the lockout. The teams are losing money by sitting idle either way. The players stand to lose more, but it's hurting everybody.
Both sides are being stupid, fighting over the scraps of a dwindling pie. Urgh. Screw em all.
