Last time D Fehr said anything positive he followed it up with an epic failure so I am looking for results over rhetoric

This board loves to single out people for the reason this deal is not done. You don't think Steve and Bill know the direction their respective camps want to head? It's not Gary vs. Dave, ect. It's still the owners against the players.
