10:48 AM ET 10.30 | This is opinion: The latest NBA lockout stalemate is all about the basketball-related-income (BRI) split. The owners want 50-50. The players want 52-48. This is fact: The belief that NBA Players Association president Derek Fisher has been co-opted by commissioner David Stern - and promised the commish he could deliver the union at 50-50 - caused NBPA executive director Billy Hunter and at least one member of the union's executive committee to confront Fisher on Friday morning and make him reassess his 50-50 push, a source familiar with the negotiations told FOXSports.com Friday afternoon.

That's what happens players when you have a big time flopper as head of the union. It was a matter of time before Fisher flopped.

Attention NBA Owners and Players Union:

We are the fans you are farking over right now. We pay admission to the games and buy the swag that pays you your split 50:50 or 99:1 for all we care.

We also are jacked up over both of your greed to still have a 'full' season. We want to watch competitive games, not a farce of a jammed up season.

We also realize there is another 82 games season going on right now with a parallel season to basketball, and most of the same markets have one of those teams too.

Why don't you ask baseball how their last big strike worked out for small market teams?
Their fans are still angry 15 years later.
