The part that I find the most interesting, is the deal baseballs owners offered the players back in the day, sounds a lot like what is presently in place with the NHL ... UFA's earlier, RFA with club match, total cap on salaries, etc. But that wasn't good enough for the Players Union. Feher canceled the season and the post season over it and displaced a lot of fans. In fact, a life long A's fan until then - I haven't been to a game since. Why? Because hockey was here and I've never looked back on the game since. I just hope Feher isn't going to use the same tactics.
