That's right -- -- here that's right now sports business exact president -- because dot com we have a deal.
Now I think from where I sit it's a good deal for the players.
Tell me I'm wrong.
I can't tell you C and and I am like you I need football I want football I hit it off excess changes.
The entire fall makes winter bearable -- in the north itself.
There is a deal in place and there is obviously the terms and most terms have been worked out so looks like this thing is actually gonna go through the players have to.
Vote on it.
And the key thing here is that.
There's a little bit of issue right now -- kind of players grumbling because of the owners have really kind of put the onus right now on the players and -- look.
We voted on this we agreed that you guys -- He had the deal you have to vote right you have to agree to it.
So as soon as they do that there is going to be a deal and I think there's really no winner or loser in this situation I think both sides gave up enough.
For the season the carrier.
But a lot of players are saying that they were sold out.
Is it all because of this 5050 revenue distribution.
I think that the players the reason that they're being you know we're we're coming out and bunch of them have -- mediating post FaceBook all this information about.
Haiti you know this deal isn't done -- not here yet it's because the owners really they put the onus on the players to say said look.
We have we -- had an agreement that -- what the media was reporting last week that there was.
Basically in agreement and now they're saying look we voted on -- it's all good.
Now you players go vote -- -- we're gonna have a season but the issue is what these players are saying that there are some things in this agreement that the owners voted on.
That they didn't necessarily agree upon last week so that's what's getting sorted out right now at the end of the day the real problem is that.
Both players and owners are losing money and if this goes another week they've already canceled the hall of fame game right and supposedly it's something like 200 million dollars a day to a two million dollars that they're going to start losing so.
They're really putting the pressure the owners on hey get this -- out let's get back this Saturday will be yet that -- -- tomorrow will be at the facilities will allow players back.
Will be starting pre -- next week so.
So there's an urgency to get the deal done.
And just so we go through what they got so there's at 4052.
Revenue split owners get 52% salary cap.
We're keeping a cap tech think he's kind of important I mean that was -- but I could be important things -- though off the you know 900 minute 99 dollars set aside for ten years for -- -- better pensions but they were really worried about -- the cheery stuff and they should.
It totally I agree with in that respect that to me he's the most important thing because if you remember NFL players.
Their careers are much shorter than basketball players baseball players are looking three to four years and they also.
Stain it's so much more in the injury department.
When you get your head bashed in you know week -- week gap so.
At the end of the day if you need health insurance and you need things to -- medical benefits at the end of the day that's why you see so many former players now.
Who were so angry at the -- because they all had these injuries.
But they're not getting paid for by the NFL to the degree they want to so.
And the -- taken fifteen million dollars analysts totally infuriate -- will EC I mean and we deal in which we total speakers we deal with tons of X players in these guys who were literally hall of famers who never meet.
That amount of money and then also marketing you know they're not getting their medical benefits taken care of so.
There's a lot of resentment I think it now I -- -- you see you know players -- guy who you know couldn't hold this guy's job for better word yes ago.
Who now is making millions and millions of dollars and in any case He DC that there is.
-- this ninety million over ten years.
Helped -- -- for sure I mean look that's -- intended to date it's a lot of money even when you know you're only talking doubt.
A fraternity of players like there's maybe 1519100.
Players total in the league so that money it's not going towards you know.
Fifty million people this is going to a small -- -- group of.
We're still leave open first game is October sorry September 8 ghastly event October -- September 30 forget it tastes just never have been.
Training camps for these guys you -- a less intense.
That's -- thing also with what you know the owners wanted eighteen games like this is sixteen games scheduled now eighteen -- tour games it's a lot more money for owners.
Players go up at their bodies are getting beat up badly enough right now so yes.
Good thing about right now -- settle this thing is the fact that we're gonna have a sixteen games schedule and in the future what they're gonna agreed agree on hopefully.
Is you know less intensive.
Routier's which -- offseason training camps less intensive.
Practices -- some of the players came out for and against yesterday.
But look the players is a -- they want that they want to take care their bodies they wanna play longer because that's for them longer earning potential.
