    I think there is a gap in Oldtimer's calculation and that is how this lockout affects the BRI. If I remember correctly, every single month of games missing means loss of approximately $800M. Imagine that there are no games until Christmas, which is almost two months of the RS taken out and about $1,6B loss. If the union gets the 53/47 split, the players would miss almost $850M of their money. But if there is no deal until late January, which is also possible, they would miss a bit more than $1,27B, which is more than extra $1,2B they would earn in 10 years if they got that extra 3% they're fighting for.

    the owners are not partners with the players... the owners own the franchise, and have put up the $$$ to buy same.

    the players are salaried employees of the owner.

    now if the players want to be 'partners' with the owners, they have to be willing to accept part of any eventual losses that may occur, as well as par-take in excess profits over whatever the final split is agreed..

    that's my take on it... one mans opinion...

    I personally do not believe they're going to make any major progress today, but who knows? We're at the stage of more games about to being canceled every moment and if that takes place missing games probably won't be made up when the season starts, so maybe both sides want to try once again to stop this madness?
