Let's say, the floor should be 30% of the cap, then it would rise less than the cap and it would nothing but a good and fair system for the teams.

But the greedy players want this 16 million locked gap between cap and floor, because in that system they can get more money. They have kind of an attitude that teams financial problems is not players problem. But their greediness causes the problem.
I've never heard of the players speaking about the floor (not saying they haven't). Originally the floor was an owner idea. The owners who were sharing the money didn't want the recieving owners to just pocket the money. They wanted to be sure that that money was spent on players. The problem with the sharing system they have is that it isn't tied to anything it was just a strait 150mil.
