Deal 95% of the way done, how it effects the Hornets and thoughts about this fine website

Published: October 30, 2011

We’ve seen this act before. Both sides talk tough then meet and make progress. They don’t get over the hump and go back to stupid rhetoric and say they won’t talk for 2 weeks. As soon as it goes to fine print, some lawyer calls another lawyer and they’re setting up another meeting where we see more progress yet can’t get over the hump. Yawn.

This time though, a deal is within reach. I’m hoping that there can just be some give and take. If the union wants 52% then the owners should get a compromise on system issues.

Or is the owners get 50%, give the union the system issues of their choice.

Or how about going with a band where we see the players get 50% in a down year for revenue, 51% in an average year and then 52% in a good year? Or why not just split it at 51%?

Based on what I’ve seen so far, the new cba could be really good for the Hornets provided they don’t make any changes to what’s been agreed on. Despite what we read from the media or other Hornet websites, the new changes can be great for this team but I won’t tackle those until we actually have a deal, whenever that may be.

Also, it would be cool if we could add a pm function to this site. Some members have mentioned that they would be willing to talk to me more about issues regarding the finances of the league but there is no way to get a hold of email addresses or utilize a pm function when accessing someone’s profile page. Is there any way we could add something like that to this site? Or if we aren’t too privacy conscious, maybe we could just use this thread to exchange emails or ideas on how to create a pm function?
