Florio's solution to NFL's labor dispute

For example, if the owners commit to diverting 10 cents per dollar to stadium costs and other expenses that the parties agree to share, the players probably would be willing to take 45 of the remaining 90 cents, since they would still be splitting the rest of the money on a 50-50 basis with the owners.

Making sense of the financial divide between the two sides

Deb says: Mar 13, 2011 11:09 PM @Those who keep insisting players offered nothing, pay attention: "[E]arlier this year, the players offered to take 50 cents of every dollar earned, without regard to expense credits or anything else that would be deducted before getting out the carving knife. The proposal represented a lower percentage of total dollars than the players have received in each year since 2002." The owners demanded an additional $1 billion from players. The owners spent two years stockpiling lockout funds to finance them while they shut down the league. The owners hired a lockout specialist to head their "negotiating" team. The owners kept walking away from the negotiating table before making a ninth-hour offer that didn’t address the disputed revenues. The owners have waged a propaganda war to convince naive fans that labor is trying to hit them up for more money when it’s the other way around. The owners shut down the league–as they obviously intended to do from the start. The players are going to court in hopes of resuming business. The percentage of the NFL revenues earmarked for players is comparable to the percentage of budget earmarked for human resources in any labor intensive industry. NFL owners are not suffering and players are paid commensurate with the revenue they generate for the owners.
