So far I know money doesn't seem to be a motivating factor for all parties and although common sense tells me "its time", I refuse to get sucked into believing they will play nice with each other and get a deal done quite yet. It could happen but they will need to show me more than one weekend of talking.
I don't know if today is a make or break day but it is getting close. I hope they have made enough progress to allow the egos of Don and Gary back into the room. The deal can't get completed without them there. Twice I've been involved in collective bargaining (obviously not at the same high stakes) and both times it was surprising how you can talk in circles for months then something gives/moves and in a matter of a couple of days everything gets put to bed. I'm feeling hopeful.
