Not sure if this wacky idea has been thrown in and out of the boards yet. Here it is: Determine total revenue of previous year, total labor/player costs, and % of revenue allocated to labor/player costs. If more than 60%, rollback player salaries 5% for all existing player contracts. If less than 50%, rollup player salaries 5% for all existing player contracts. If between 50% and 60% let the market prevail. This would occur every season, so if players are getting 62% one season, then 5% rollback occurs, and if still over 60% next season, another 5% rollback happens. If more than 60%, allow no salary arbitration for upcoming season, and otherwise have limited arbitration. If less than 50%, have 110% of current salary required for qualifying offer, and if more than 60% have 95% required for qualifying offer, and otherwise require 100%. Start with 24% rollback this season to bring player salaries into about the 55% range. Have eyes go blurry from all the %s in this plan.
