Really, the numbers getting diced down makes things look really pathetic. Both sides scratching and clawing at every % they can get while turning to the media right after pointing the finger at the other guy. Neither side should realistically speak to the media because they sound out of touch with the fans.
They do sound out of touch, but apparently they don't care. Even the most likable and media savvy players are coming off sounding greedier than Scrooge McDuck, saying that the fans don't enter into it because the players need to secure their own futures and feed their families. Forgive me if I think that stuff rings incredibly hollow.

Unfortunately, I think they could be that stubborn. Fehr's in charge, and he's got the "we don't negotiate with terrorists" mentality. Never bodes well.
