effectively lowering the available cap space for future players
. But with all players on net, the PA still gets exactly 50% every damn year.
The only way you get to add that $211M is if the owners said, "you players will pay us owners $211M, which we keep." Otherwise, you're just making a mathematically absurd argument. And I mean absurd in the fullest sense of the word. Please stop.
Read what you just wrote that I bolded. How is that not a negative impact on players salaries going forward as I suggested? By changing it to a payment outside the revenue share the make whole payments take up no cap space, meaning teams can pay salaries right to 50% and the players get to keep it rather than escrow get it if the make whole and the paid salaries push them over 50%.
