So... Apparently the players share the revenue with the owners. Which means what exactly?

Like do they get their salary and on top of that each player in the league gets an equal split of the share of the revenues? so .. 2000ish players each get a share of 4.8Billion dollars or about another $2.4 Million each?

Or are their salaries simply taken out of the revenue?

or..well really I dont get it.

I have no clue how they manage that revenue. The dollar amounts are obscene though eh? Imaging the CFL has a total salary cap of around $4 million per team. The WHOLE team!

From what I understand, the pool is $9B

The owners get $1B off the top before any sharing is done.

They want another $1B off the top before sharing, so on $9B, owners would get $5.5B, Players would get $3.5B

Players are waiting for the answer to the question "Why, other than greed?"

Owners haven't given them an answer yet.

Of course the above is from ESPN radio, so take that for what it is worth.
