I'd say a 50/50 split is fair. However, I could certainly see either side feeling that their worth is more than the other.

I want to get something straight. Is the cap itself 50% of the revenue or is the mid-point between the cap and the floor 50%? Because if the cap is 50%, then the owners will get significantly more than the players. The cap is 50%, the floor is 36% (it was a 14% gap last time), so the mid-point would be 42% of the revenue to the players.

From what I understand, the last time, the cap was 57%, the floor was 43% and the mid-point was 50%, so really, the last CBA from 2005 was actually 50-50. This one is almost 60-40 in favor of the owners. Am I wrong?
