But is it agreeable? - Details of proposed NFL CBA revealed by sources
 
All of the NFL owners are meeting on Tuesday with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell so that they can all be on the exact same page. There was said to have been some disagreements amongst them lately and that could indeed make the 2011 NFL Lockout go on longer. Goodell wanted each to have their say if need be, but there was not going to be a vote on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

What would be done though is that the details of the proposed CBA were going to be revealed to the owners by Goodell. Sources are now letting out what the details for this possible new CBA could be and that includes a 48 percent share for the players.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen says that the next propsed agreement will have players receive a 48 percent share of "all revenue," without the $1-billion-plus credit off the the top that had been a point of contention in earlier negotiations.

The thought of winter in Alaska without football is too much to bear.

How do they split that pie up? Do the teams get an even share to divide among players? Do all the players receive the same amount? Damn I should have went to business school.

The players, who were getting ~ 60% are now going to accept ~48%?

It's going to be a long summer indeed...

Gotta be more to the story... It appears they're getting prison-raped.

Yeah you rite. There HAS to be something else, or the percentages are for different pieces of the pie...or something.

I mean, I'm down with the owners on this one, but, as a player, I'd be very hard pressed to give back a dime to tell the truth...

Before, the players received 60% AFTER the owners took $1 billion off of the top.
This proposal would eliminate that $1 billion "deductible" and make it a flat 48%.
