For those who still believe it will, i'm telling you it wont. The owners want a certain percentage of revenue paid to the players. They aren't saying a cap will be 35 million regardless of revenue, those numbers are based on the league revenues in 2003-2004. The owners would like roughly 55% of revenue going to the players and the rest going to the owners to pay non payroll expenses. So basically they get 45% of the revenues to do with what they want. If revenues average 70 million a team would it would break down 31.5 million to the owners and 38.5 million to the players. Now if the revenues averaged 80 million per teams thats same breakdown would result in 36 million to the owners and 44 million to the players. The bigger the pie the bigger the cut for both parties. Who's pays for the pie? The vast majority of it comes from ticket sales. So why would BOTH the owners and players want lower ticket prices when it cost both parties money?
