Make whole is all about covering the difference between going from 57% in HRR to the 50/50 split. It's complicated, but it's basically to assure every player currently signed gets paid 100% of his salary.

If there was no make whole, players would face steep escrow charges since going from 57% of HRR to 50% would be coming out of their pockets.
