No they aren't. They never were. It's two things.
1) A PR tactic.
2) It means they can go on strike at any time they want to since there's no CBA to stop them from doing so. Fehr did it in 94-95 with baseball.
Both sides are at fault here. Maybe if it didn't take the players an entire ****ing month to respond with an incomplete proposal, we wouldn't be in as bad a situation as we are now.
