Do the players get paid extra on top of their contract if the team makes a lot of money that season? Say they sell a bunch of extra seat licenses? No? Then why the f*ck should they be expected to take a salary cut if their team isn't going to pull in as much money? That's not how capitalism works. At least not real capitalism.

The NFL players should absolutely strike and protest.

They don't need to strike. All they have to do is stick to their contracts. This isn't about the players wanting more. This is about their employers wanting to give them less.

I doubt we're having a season anyway. Why bother.

They will probably play 1 game so the guaranteed contracts are triggered.

Then again, you would be surprised what they pull off. Both sides have a lot to lose if they can't get anything done.

nfl wants the players to take a pay cut while dishing out a 450 million dollar contract?

The salary cap is based upon total NFL revenue (tickets, concessions, broadcasting rights...)

If the seat sales drop by 80% it will drop the salary cap for 2021 instead of the anticipated moderate increase which is typical every year.
