Okay, you might not get it yet, but you need to get this: none of these things give the union more money. None. Not a red cent. Unless I'm wrong about pensions, because what I've read indicates that owners aren't paying any more money into pension funds, they're all funded by the players. These are all just rules by which money gets shifted from one player to the other. Bottom line, be all and end all is that the amount of money going to from owner to player is 50% of revenue plus $300M. That's it. No tweaking of any of these other rules will add a red cent to that.
