Anybody have details?
EDIT: What happened to $300M in revenue sharing? That says only $200M.
$300 was the "make whole" not revenue sharing.
As for the cap, its necessary to keep it low to minimize escrow by the players. Regardless of what it is the players would get 50%. Outside a cap on escrow, a lower cap benefits players.
The PA proposed a higher cap in conjunction with capping escrow as a way to ensure they actually get greater than 50% of HRR.
