What would happen if the players just went and set up their own league, hired their own coaches, divvied up the $? It's just amazing how confident the owners are in their own necessity. Of course, there's never been discussion of a "profit cap".

My thought on why the players wouldn't act is that the rich players need the owners to justify their exorbitant salaries relative to the vast majority of the players. W/out owners to "pay" them, it would be much harder to justify their salaries.
