50% !!! thats insane , why not 25% or 60% ? a contract is a contract , if the lega agree with this kind of situation and qualifye teams they (un purpose or not) didnt pay players, she open a door for cheaters
the 50% is before the playoffs not in the season..in the end of season they must have paid 100%. I think that is what I understood.
For me it is a start, before they only demanded 70% of the salaries paid to enter next season..so.
