Wrt the current verbal proposal, Dreger said someone from the PA side passed on the info. Fehr said there has been no proposal since Oct 18. They may be tossing ideas around so that everyone is correct.

Minor nit. I think Dreger said someone from the PA side. That doesn't mean it was a player.
An accurate nit.

However, it doesn't change the point of my argument saying it's beyond ridiculous to suggest that (3 days after the fact) the league manufactured a positive story by having phone conversations about the topic knowing that someone in the other camp would leak said information a few hours after some bad news they were saying was going to happen for over a week was actually confirmed. Even more ridiculous than that last sentence.

If the league had THAT level of manipulative skill the players would all be living in communal apartments and being paid gas money. It's ridiculous on the face of it.
