If they fix this right now all they'll have lost is two weeks.
There is no chance revenue streams reach the same level they would have the next 2-3 years at least.
If revenues are 2.5 billion lower not including the money the player's lost this year over the next 5 years.
that is another 1.25 billion the players lost by not accepting a 50/50 back when 82 games could of happened.
The players will likely lose 1.5-3 billion over this.
