the owners lose 43 cents - expenses, the players lose 57%.
The escrow accounts would be hit to the tune of 30% or more. The players would never strike in that instance.
The first part is right, the second part is wrong. Those figures no longer apply and haven't applied since the end of last Season. You're playing the players song, with the idea that if this Season were played out while the negotiation process continued, that the players should rightfully just continue to get the share that they had been getting in the old CBA. WHY should they? There is no contract stating what share the players should be receiving this Season if the Season were in process.
