This is not a referendum on MJ. It is all about greed...they are arguing about who will get the lions share of the fans' money. The players want to get piles of money endorsing clothing, etc. manufactured in China or third world countries by near slave labor.
The owners want to get piles of money selling the media rights.
It would serve all of them right if no one attended another game or tuned to TV channels that show the games or bought any item manufactured outside the USA.
