HRR definitions will dominate today’s mtgs. Players also want piece of newer rev. streams such as team-themed bars and real estate.

THAT will not end well

I can agree with you today, Evilpens.  Seriously, the players play for contracts, and bars/real estate/etc are all risks taken by the owners.  If the players what a part of that risk/reward, they should expect to lose money when the owners lose money on these ventures, too. 

And don’t tell me that that stuff is only possible because of the players’ skill and ability to attract fans, because that cuts both ways - the owners build a culture through merchandising, advertising, and special events that sells tickets and funds the players’ big contracts.
