you are missing the biggest point....

Owners invested their own wealth and debt for the team. They pay all the bills. They have all the risk. Their reward and upside whould be comensurate with this risk.

Players are employees who are paid a wage to perform a job.

If the players want the benefits of ownership, i suggest that they pony up their hard earn cash and invest in the teams. Until then, they can shut up and do their job.

End of story.



bam
we have a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No...I'm not missing the point. I'm a business owner and am about to open a second business so the idea of owner investment is not lost on me. However, the reward of the players for risking their bodies and investing all their time training should also be comensurate with their sacrifice. Its impossible to accurately say who makes a greater sacrifice....but my entire argument is that the owners are asking for major paycuts and increased wear on their bodies...without providing concrete reasoning.


I think 6.5 million dollars as you put it, is more than enough...

I also believe the cuts would come in Rookie Salaries. You have a problem with a Rookie making more than a VET. I DO!!!!
