Honestly I think the players have been greedy about this but the way the owners have treated them, this process, and the fans is worse in my mind and why most of my ire is reserved for them
It also reminds me how poorly this country thinks about organized labor and that irritates me a lot
I don't think anyone is saying the players don't/shouldn't have the right to make a proposal of their own, with their own ideas. My problem their proposals were (in my view at least) unreasonable. If they were to have come up with a unique, reasonable original offer, I would have been encouraged.
I think the fact that we were lead to believe the proposal would be working off the NHL's offer was problem as well, though I don't think that was the PA's fault.
