Apparently Fehr did not want to leave no stone unturned, which is why it took so long to begin negotiating. Still, I think timelines and deadlines are as much a PA bargaining tactic as they are the Owners'. Only difference is the Owners are the ones setting the deadlines and the PA is the ones showing a lack of urgency, declining proposals and refusing to make adequate ones themselves.
