Don Fehr speaks at Atlantic City Hurricane Sandy fundraiser

Quote:
Before the game, union executive director Donald Fehr met with about 25 players at Caesar's to fill them in on what's happening, which isn't much.

"There are no further (negotiation) meetings scheduled," Fehr said.

The union thought it took a big step toward a resolution when making a new proposal last Wednesday, one that spoke "the owners' language" and seemingly left the sides just $182 million over five seasons apart, but the offer immediately was rejected.

"It was off their proposal," Fehr said. "Everybody understands that negotiation is a process. So far, we seem to be doing all the negotiating."

Asked if he thinks the sides are closer to a deal than a week ago, Fehr said, "When we made our proposal on Wednesday, I thought the answer would be yes, but we didn't get a response that suggests that we are."
