Irrelevant since revenue can go up for all time and you can still lose your business if costs increase faster than revenues which is exactly what the Packers data showed but everyone blithely wants to ignore that.

Then why wont the owners open their books?

1. Private businesses never open their books. It ain't just in the NFL.
2. It won't help, the NBA proved that.
Still, in the end since revenues are shared and everyone operates under the same labor rules the extrapolation from Packers to the other 31 is a pretty clear path.

This isn't your common company.... This is an organization that already gets ridiculous amounts of tax breaks and leeway with the law. It's allowed to create a monopoly out of its TV broadcasts and thanks to the breaks and look-aways, the NFL has had the opportunity to grow. Now the only reason it is at this level now is because of the players. What's fair and what isn't? Well in the last CBA, 50-50 was fair.

The NFL and Union created a CBA that now doesn't please the owners, well too bad, you screwed yourself over. You terminate a contract early because you can? Well the union will decertify, why? Because they can. It's legal strategy. It happens in DUI cases, drug cases, and pretty much anything else. Its strategy. It is a tool the players have and they have every right to use it.

You made a critical error!
The players were receiving over 55% ,so your 50-50 is fair in completely wrong!

I guess I should've clarified....
In the last CBA, 50-50 was what was found to be fair.
Meaning, thats what the NFL had agreed to....
Whether it is 50% or not is irrelevant, what is relevant is that the NFL committed to whatever share the Players WERE getting.
And if anything, that 55% or 60% (which is think is closer to the actual number) is AFTER $1bil has been deducted from the total revenue which is around $9bil.

Which is around 4.8bil... close to 50 total, which is LESS than what the Players were actually asking for, which was 50%, i.e. 300 mil less.
