We continue to receive questions via Here are two recent questions and our answers:

Do you agree with DeMaurice Smith that the owners’ current proposal would reduce veteran salaries by 18% and the players’ share of revenues from 59% to 41%? 

Those numbers that Mr. Smith used at his Super Bowl press conference are inaccurate. No current player needs to take a pay-cut as a result of our proposal. Our goal is to generate a pool of resources in order to have continued investment and continued growth. This will lead to higher salaries and higher benefits for players.

Is it true that the league is not appealing the Special Master’s decision in the supplemental revenue sharing case? 

We are not appealing because the impact of the Special Master’s decision is really insignificant and does not affect our overall revenue sharing system.
