And if there's not? Owners are screwed. It's a suicidal bet to make and it probably took about half a second to reject. The only reason Fehr proposed it because he knew most fans wouldn't understand what it really meant, but the optics would look good. This is a proposal that they put together over lunch and didn't even run the numbers on. Might as well just have written "**** you" on a half-used napkin.
