Fehr makes interesting points about the salary cap and “fair market value,” yet his comments about the idea of a “50/50 split” might be the most interesting.
In his eyes, splitting revenue evenly doesn’t make for a true partnership.
“If we are partners, do we have joint control?” Fehr said. “Do we get to have an equal say on how the marketing is done, how the promotion is done, where the money is invested, where the franchises are located? Do we have an equal say on when teams are sold, where the money goes? Do we get part of that? Do we have an equal say on how the television arrangements are done? Do we have an equal say on anything? That’s what a partnership normally implies.”
Under the soon-to-expire CBA, players received 57 percent of the pie.
Fehr indicates that the discussions involve more than just the revenue split, though.
