The offer on the table

    • and change very little...we will have a deal by the weekend
    • will counter offer with a few small changes...deal done in 5-7 days
    • will play "hard ball" but will sign to play to salvage the Nov 2nd date
    • Players won't sign. They will hold out for more revenue sharing and a bigger payday. NO DEAL

Cap would seem irrelevant for the first year anyway since the teams could go over it. The cap isn't what controls the players' salaries, that just allows teams to be competitive (i.e. one team can't overspend everyone). At the end of the day, if every team spent to the cap, the players would be giving money back at the end of the year.

Yes, but that doesn't change the fact that they used two different revenue estimates, and that under the more conservative of the two, the provision doesn't work. The provision is bad enough even under decent growth conditions. It becomes much worse if growth is low. Basically stagnates total compensation for 4-7 years, and if the cost of benefits goes up, salaries have to go down to compensate.
