Honestly, if Fehr has paid any attention to the NBA debacle this year, he'd know that, especially in this crappy economy, fans/the public have no patience for millionaires complaining about "management".

Personally, I support unions, but pro sports unions haven't really qualified for that name in decades. These guys make too much money to cry oppression like the basketball players did.

Fehr will not win in the court of public opinion if he kills popular initiatives like this.

That said, I did have concerns about the unequal number of teams in each conference. Seemed very unfair. Otherwise, tho, I thought it was a good idea.
