Only $300 Million Away?

Most curious...

I'm normally giving Yahoo! Sports a wide berth as far as believing anything said (mostly because of Silver's over-the-top rhetoric), but this article from Jason Cole is actually rather intriguing.  Just thought I would bring it up to everyone's attention and see what you all thought.

Myself, I'm actually finding myself shaking my head over it all.  Both sides are content to let this play out in the courts, and yet this is the kind of offer that was turned down -- $1 billion off the top for the owners, 50/50 split on the rest of the revenue.  With a projection of $44 billion over the next 4 years (or thereabouts), the players would have wound up with something like $20.3 billion.  Owners turned it down, and for their own part, had a plan where the players would have had right at $20 billion over the next four years.  The NFLPA turned that down.

Only $300 million apart... and this seems to be what both sides are haggling over, in the end.  $300 million.

I think I'm gonna beat my head against the wall now.
