In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
So what happens after he retires? He has to get a real job and join the working world? He has to be a common person?
Don't cry for me, Jan Hrdina.
And I get that. I just want to point out that other people that are the top in their professions, actors, doctors, lawyers & etc. have longer careers and will make more money than professional athletes in their lifetimes.
I think the most important aspect of this is the psychology.
Famous experiment. You and I find $10. I'm holding the money. I propose a split. If you don't agree with the split, the whole $10 goes into the sewer, and both of us get zero.
Will you split 50/50 - everyone says yes.
Will you split 40/60 - most say maybe
will you split 30/70 - at this point most people start saying that they would rather get 0 rather than you getting 7 and them getting 3.
Logically it make sense that you would accept 1 cent and they get 9.99 because you are going to be 1 cent richer.
But people's sense of fairness comes into play, and really that's the name of the game here.
Neither side will starve to death lockout or no.
