Please note I stressed potential.

Kind of reminds me of a story of a kid in Cincinnati who reached into his pocket to get his ID, but someone thought he was going for a gun- and shot him. Hey- it could have been a gun.

The players might have chosen to strike and yet they might not have. We will never know. The League made it's choice, and I'll not pretend this was forced upon them.

I personally believe it was a tactic to gain leverage.
Fehr did what he did in 1994 to MLB and there was no World Series...do you honestly think he wouldn't have done it in 2012 to a sport he doesn't even care for, just to get his clients leverage??

Owners in pro sports will never ever again give a PA a chance to play and earn money, while no CBA, thanks to the Don...
