Why the players can't win (a mathematical fact?) not an opinion


please correct me if I'm wrong but one of the most honest idioms in the universe is math don't lie

(not an opinion... just logic) i think

1) if the players are making 57 percent of the money then they are losing 57 percent of the money from a lockout. right? for every dollar lost from the lockout... they lose 57 cents. owners lose 43 cents. mathematically... players lose.

2) owners don't have an expiration date on their ownership. players do. owners can wait it out.

3) teams are losing money. not all... but many no matter who's math you want to trust. for a team like the isles... not playing saves you money compared to playing.

i just can't see how the players can win. the longer the lockout goes... the better for owners.

am I wrong?
