I like the salary cap as an investment into a better game. However, the players have already made the sacrifice going from 76% to 57% and now even 50% of revenue. Now it's the owners' turn, they should accept the kind of revenue sharing necessary to aggressively expand the game.

They're aggressively trying to grow the game from a regional game into a national game, that's a great idea, maybe they should cover some of the investment costs.
Actually, what was it, 50% of the players from the last lockout are retired? So, at least half of them did not sacrifice a penny. They weren't even present.
Obviously, you conveniently leave the fact they made all that cash back +.

You shouldn't expect to get far in explaining it. They'll keep saying "no, owners pay for it".
Actually that's your own assumption. Nobody says x player would get extra cash if the owner didn't pay for traveling costs and what not. You also do not know if he were to have cash, then it would equate the amount of money spent on a deal.
No matter how logical you want to debate it to be, it remains an assumption.
The only fact you have is that the owners are the ones paying the tabs for that stuff.

The fact people are calling it a 10-year deal shows how successful the league is at promoting its propaganda.
Most people have called it 8+2.
