They obviously care more about money than the game and the fans, it's pretty clear in the letter.

But you are correct, it is a starting point; for a deal in 2014 or 2015.
this is all part of the negotiations and this letter is something i would expect. fehr isn't just going to come out and agree to a proposal as is. he is going to try to get the best possible deal.

but now that the owners have finally come out with a reasonable offer, they and the pa can now finally play "ping pong" in these negotiations. like bob mack said, expect an intense week of negotiations with ups and downs.

anyone that actually believes the owners or the players care about the fans are either naive or just plain stupid.
