It only takes one reporter to get his mitts on something and it's on twitter in seconds.
I guess it would depend on the timing. How long after the meeting was the conference call? Things like that.

However, if it is true that the guy got called out for asking that kind of question in a closed call, that's bad. It is after all a valid point. All Fehr would have had to say is exactly what you did. There are a lot of players and it takes time to get the info out. No need to ridicule a guy for a legit question. It lends a bit more credence to the league accusations of all of the players wishes not being taken into account.
