As it stands right now, they players get 59.5% of the revenue after you take off $1 billion off the top. At the $9 billion that has been thrown around, that is 4.76 billion or approximately 52.9% of the total revenue. The players supposedly offered a 50/50 split of that 9 billion. That would actually give them LESS money than the current deal, but more than the owners proposition. The players proposition would give provide them 4.5 billion of the 9 billion. The owners proposition (2 billion off the top) would give the players 4.165 Billion or a % of 46.2%. Now, one of the things that is interesting (Yes, I am acknowledging an error on my part) is that the owners last proposal had the players' portion of the revenue paying for the benefits. I believe that, previously, the owners portion of the revenue paid for the benefits. In all honesty, I'd go with a 50/50 split of the total revenue with the benefits coming off the top. $864 MILLION in benefits according to the NFL's last proposal.
