What would such a split do toward fixing the systemic problem the league has regarding runaway revenues of rich teams making it impossible for poor teams to catch up?
Let me clarify, Bob. If we were starting from scratch, I would say 50/50 is great. But, in this situation, one has to respect that the owners purchased Toronto and Montreal, for example, knowing they could print money at the gate. I am not sure it works to take 50% of that away now...
