What's the main "issue" (money)?    Is it a share the wealth thing?

the main issue is money, but i'm not sure if it is a share the wealth thing.  last lockout the owners won big time with a 24% salary roll back and hard salary cap.  i guess as years have gone by and revenues and salaries have increased together (salaries being a function of revenue), the owners want to keep more of the money for themselves. maybe a few teams arent profitable, but it has to be less than last time.

i really think the owners are just being greedy. salaries were tied to revenue. and i cant imagine any of the other costs have increased disproportionately to have driven the owners into unprofitability
