Some players are now putting pressure on the PA because they are about to start losing checks.

Now it gets serious.
Not one bit. I fully expected it.

And again, that isn't to pat myself on the back one bit as the prediction is borne of cynicism. There's just no way one side doesn't try to take advantage of the WC deadline by submitting a proposal then calling attention to how t represents "a significant effort to save the WC and the season". And who better to submit it than the group that created/agreed to this WC deadline?

So yeah..completely expected. The surprise will be if it actually IS a meaningful offer or just a small move from the last offer.
