The March agreement said there was a right to go back to the negotiation table if there were not going to be fans in the stands. It is beyond fair for the owners to ask the players to take another pay cut if there is 40% less revenue coming in. That's just the nature of business. But, since the early stages of this standoff both sides have dug in so hard they aren't willing to move off their original stances. The owners could easily agree to a 64 or a 72 game schedule with fairly close to prorated salaries but they aren't willing to go higher than the Manfred-mandated number so they'd limit how much money they'd lose. It's gotten pretty ridiculous on both sides and ultimately that falls on Rob Manfred.Not both sides. The owners signed an agreement that said the players would be paid their full pro-rata salaries for all games played. Then they decided that was a bad deal and have been trying to renegotiate that signed deal ever since with zero leverage to do so. This is 100% on the owners.
