prediction time for new cba



just a hunch, since it appears an agreement is in the works, and there will be a full season this year. i offer some details below, on what i think is most important. 

 

there will be a 16 game season, because the players and fans understand this is the best way to secure the credibility of the competition.

they will stick with 4 preseason games, since this is the best way to ensure there is ample time for players to get fair tryouts.

there will be a rookie salary cap, which will allow the owners to make more money and for veterans to make about as much as they make now.

the owners will take more of the pie, but the players have reason to believe they will still experience salary increases because of the massive popularity of the game, and all the new sources of revenue made available to the league through the new media revolution and creative marketing strategies developed in recent years.

there will be more focus on safety, which is needed both for long term health of the players and for public relations reasons, as well as to make sure their stars at elite playmaker positions are protected as much as is feasible.

all in all, it should be a win win, though small markets will be slightly less competitive under the new formula, they will not become unprofitable, they will just have to make do with lower profits than the other major market owners.

and lastly, a salary cap is maintained, with a minimum and a maximum, to preserve the competitiveness of the league.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
