the owners are the ones asking for money back from the players. Players arent asking for more money.
I could go on and on but the information is out there for you to read yourself.
Oh and the endorsement thing?
Players asked for 5-7 million more on average for contracts. What the fu*k are you talking about not asking for more? Berger, I believe is the one who tweeted it and I posted it on here.
And also, again, players want more of the share. That ain't happening in this economy. It worked last time because the economy was strong. This time it won't because so many teams are losing money. Top tier teams are clouding the numbers because of the fact they make a ton of cash, while more teams are losing money. Some players and fans are saying, contract those teams, but when the players lose their jobs and have no where else to go, then they'll start bi*ching then too.
Fact is, this lockout is on the players. I hate Stern. Despise the man and think he's the most overrated commish in the league and I've said that several times. At the same time, this one isn't on him.
