If that is a yes, then the talk surrounding the ownership mess will get very interesting as well.
No. Mediation would be a privately conducted exercise involving the two sides. Nothing from the sessions has to be made public.
The PA already has most, if not all of the details of the team finances. They were able to audit teams under the past CBA. It was also reported the league turned over 18,000 pages of club financial information earlier in the negotiation process at the PA's request.
