This is how this should have been handled from the very beginning.
Youre way to optimistic for me, and I think this is wishful thinking.

Talking about player travel is going to generate good-will? And good-will is going to magically translate into hammering out a complex $3.3B financial deal in "just a few days?"

What they should've been doing from the beginning is check their egos at the door and lock themselves in a room for days on end talking about core economic issues, no matter how hard it is.

Theyre still talking about small potatoes and October is on the doorstep. Thats disgusting.

The only slice of positive news I see in this is they said the talks will last through the weekend. But if they're still talking about what to stock the vending machines with by Sunday, then we're in real trouble.
