That's all that needs to be said.
Considering they have guaranteed contracts, they had absolutely earned it. They've colluded with the owners to make sure they'll never see a dime of it. The owners can have their investments appreciate again in the future, and haven't lost actual money on said value unless they fail to wait long enough to sell them (any current losses may even financially help offset profits in their REAL businesses), the lost salary of the players will never return.

That's all that needs to be said.
