I don't know enough of the process of this all but whyat I do know is neither side is innocent. No way you can put all the blame on either side. Both are out to get the most for their side..... Who suffers the most - THE FANS
why can't the revenue be 50/50
I get why the league threatens to shut down the season - to prevent the farting around tactics and the players get to it with a counter offer - otherwise We wait for weeks before anything happens.
Everyone knew they had to work on an agreement - why are they not meeting for long hours everyday to make this happen like the day after the draft. It's BS. Stretch it out and hope one side gives in so they can play or make money. Threaten to cancel the season....f'n BS. Players are no better - what was their counter offer?
And for those who think its the owners fault for high salaries..... I feel its 50/50 on owners and players. What do you do if your #1star player knows he can make 9-10million on the open market. Now you have an elite player demanding 10million. Let him sit? No way - some team will play because they need him.
If there is no season it will kill the sport -
