MLB Still Negotiating, Players "Very Disappointed", NBA Closing in Orlando

On Tuesday, the owners reportedly approved a proposal that was then shipped to the union. Although their original intent was to put a 50-50 revenue sharing plan on the table, the owners instead are said to have asked the players to sign off on a "sliding scale of compensation." This plan would trim the salaries of players set to make the most money in 2020, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale. Revenue sharing, as it turns out, is not mentioned in the proposal, per Nightengale's report.
