We do seem to be a hearing a lot from Kelly lately. Seems a bit strange. Is he getting set up to play the Ted Saskin role?
About his idea of using expansion money to bridge the gaps, as if that is plausible that the owners are about to forgo on that capital stream, Fehr claims he asked owners about expansion and they claimed it wasnt on the calendar. We know it was on Boots' calendar. We also know the owners asked for a two asterisk years of realignment ostensibly to allow them to change things a 2nd time when 2 expansion teams came in and they wanted to ensure there was maximum marketing opportunities around realignment perhaps so they hoped to change things twice, once to realign to prepare for the expansion teams and a 2nd time to receive them, instead of just once when the expansion teams entered the league? Doing it just once would take away one of the greatest fan enjoyments - asterisk years.
