It should be noted, too, that Fehr went "nuclear" during negotiations when the owners were trying to win a "salary cap."

And the owners, rather than agree to the players' demands, decided to cancel the playoffs and world series, only to later cave on the PA's demands.

So it wasn't like Fehr went on strike to argue about 2,8 percent of HRR. he went on strike to prevent the owners from locking them out -- AS THE OWNERS DID in 1990.
Fehr likely knew the owners were going to lock them out and use scab players to start the season -- which they did.
