Daly stated that they were completely open to negotiating the make whole provision at that time. It is also on Fehr and the players that they didn't explore the option of the owners paying for make whole at that time. There was nothing stopping them from negotiating for it but as everyone is aware of Don keeps proposing delinked proposals so who really knows if the players would have accepted even if it was on the table.
