This is probably why Fehr said they aren't as far apart as the league is claiming.

So why would the league get stupid and pull that **** last night?
I think they misinterpreted the leaked memo (in addition to being annoyed by Fehr showing up late to a scheduled meeting for the second time, him stubbornly offering delinked proposals with fixed salary increase in first year and raising the required revenue sharing to 260 M from their original request of 240 M after the owners offered an increase in revenue sharing).

The memo mentions the 'Make Whole' offer being similar to what was discussed between Daly and Fehr on Saturday, alluding to the offer already being known to the players. I think the league interpreted it as Fehr saying the revised 'Make Whole' was similar to the original 'Make Whole' proposition.
