My words! When the lockout started I totally understood the players view but now as the lockout's going on and on I think they should be more compliant in this point. Yes, there are other problems but a 50/50 revenue share is still very good.
Neither MLB nor NFL players earn as much (in average) as NHL players do. They earn 2,2Mio per player whereas football players get around 1,3Mio or so.
