Thing is the fans have quickly turned on the PA/Fehr in this one because we're not the complete idiots they take us for.
There is so much BS and spin from each side it's almost worse than the elections. They are all complicit in this nonsense and to be on one side or the other at this point doesn't make any sense. What I don't understand is why the league or PA doesn't just take all the free agency changes (except the provision that prevents front loaded deals) out of the deal and go with the leagues revenue plan. The players can't keep getting paid what they are getting paid and the owners have to give SOMETHING. That's how negotiations work. So far it's just been the owners taking everything they can, which if the league had any idea who Donald Fehr was, they would have known that wasn't going to fly.
