    I can't believe how close they came to killing the goose that lays the golden egg.

    So what actually happens in this agreement? I'm curious as a Bills fan because they've always been a "for the fan rather than the money" type of team.

    Not many details have been released about the deal. I would assume the players will get somewhere close to the 60% they were arguing for ... which was a ridiculous stance on their part, and I think it's terrible that Gene Upshaw looks like the hero here.

    Supposedly one of the big issues about a new agreement was revenue sharing amongst teams. But again, not many details have been put out about what the new CBA entails, so it's hard to say what they agreed to (although two low rev teams voted against it, so who knows).
