NFL owners are divided over how to split up the revenue from player salaries.
There are owners who are trying to increase the revenue sharing from the league, like the owners of the New England Patriots, to help players make more money.
And there are owners whose players want to keep some portion of their compensation, and some who want to increase it.
Here’s a look at some of the reactions from the owners as they weigh the pros and cons of increasing player compensation.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has argued that players should be able to negotiate the league’s contracts with other clubs, but the players say that would be unfair to them.
The owners want the revenue to be shared between the league and the players, but have yet to reach a consensus on how to do that.
In addition, the NFL has proposed a new salary cap, which the players oppose, as well as a new, 10-year salary cap.
“The only thing that is really clear to us is that we don’t agree with that,” said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
“I’m not going to go into specifics, but it’s a fair question, is how much revenue do we want to share and how much money should we share, and what is the right amount of revenue?
We haven’t reached that.”
There is a split in the owners on how much should be shared by the league.
“We’re going to be looking at it very carefully and we’re going be making some adjustments to it,” said Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen.
“As the commissioner, I’m going to look at it and look at all the different options.
I think it will come down to the best path for the league.”
Allen, who owns the Seattle Mariners and Atlanta Falcons, has the support of the owners, who will meet with him on Tuesday.
But the owners are concerned that a change to the current 10-game season would make it more difficult for the owners to make revenue sharing adjustments, as the season would start later and the league would be less able to work with other teams to keep players fresh for the postseason.

“It’s a big question,” said Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who has a long history of backing the NFLPA and has expressed support for increasing player salaries, as long as it’s done in a way that keeps the league competitive.
“You’re trying to get the players together and figure out how you can share the revenue, and the revenue is what makes the NFL great.
Owners have also expressed concern that a revenue sharing plan would reduce the ability of the league to expand the number of games in the regular season, as a number of teams have struggled in the postseason in recent years. “
But if we can make the league better, if we make the players better, that’s a good thing for the fans, that would help the game, it would help our league.”
Owners have also expressed concern that a revenue sharing plan would reduce the ability of the league to expand the number of games in the regular season, as a number of teams have struggled in the postseason in recent years.
The league also has a plan to expand playoff games to 12 teams.
The plan has been criticized by some owners, including the Seattle owners, for allowing teams to move their Super Bowls out of the playoffs.
The Seahawks, the team most likely to be affected by the revenue splitting plan, have said that they don’t want to move any games to accommodate a revenue-sharing plan that would change the playoff structure.
“They are very supportive of the revenue share,” said owner Paul Tagliabue.
We’re trying our best to get a deal done. “
This is a complicated issue.
We’re trying our best to get a deal done.
What we have is an opportunity to do a deal that is fair and equitable for the players and the fans.”
