As a Bussinessman who started from the botton (minimum-wage) to work
my way to the top.....my stance is in favor with the players-union proposal
of accepting 52% of the BRI for next 3 or 4 seasons with a raise to 54% the
following 3 or 4 seasons so the players would average 53% of the BRI in 6 or
8 seasons. There was a strong reason why the players received 57% of the
BRI in the 1999 lockout that has yet to be mention during this 2011 lockout.
After the "Lebron James Decision" a soft-cap is neccessary however, a flex-
cap could be instituted just not the one the owners first laid on the table.
