If the PA remains steadfast in its refusal for a true full linked system I don't see much happening.
That's the thing, Fehr never even tried to negotiate off the leagues last offer to get better numbers for the players.He doessn't want a "fair" deal he wants a "Fehr" deal or no deal. I still think they are further apart then most think.

The question is do the players really want a delinked proposal or just Fehr?
