I agree with you that this was all about the smaller markets, them and the spendthrifts. But the main issue for the smaller markets is who pays to keep them viable? Revenue sharing is one way. NFL revenue sharing is 60%. What's the NHL? 6%?

Of course, neither side wanted what I suspect most fans would prefer, contraction.
Absolutely- the question is who pays and the answer is the players. Doesn't cost jj a thing. Making bigger profits and *****ing about how angry it makes him having to cancel half a season to do it.
