I have seen it said in other threads that revenues are going to plummet, and the players in asking for no linkage have to be betting that we stay away in droves the next 8 to 10 years. In this type of dispute someone has to 'win' eventually. You can not really find much real middle ground, that was why the mediation people brought in immediately gave up last negotiating session. Either there will be a Cap or there will not be a Cap. Does it matter to you? Will you buy more or less tickets if the owners should win and get their cap? Will you never go again no matter who wins? Will you watch them on television as much or more?
