Eller confirmed my suspicion, which was also implied by Cole -- a large part of the point in these negotiations is laying thee groundwork for future negotiations. Really, you shouldn't need me or the players to explain this to you: it should come naturally as a very logical thing.
Bettman loves work stoppages. He's had 4 or 5, I'm not sure. Is that a record? Copmpare that to the post-Fehr era in baseball: 18 years of labour peace and counting. Meanwhile, now the law firm representing and advising all the major sports has taken part in negotiations for four lockouts in the past two years.
I think it's stupid to bring into an argument, especially as a point about why the owners can't "win" this time. I could just as easily say maybe 50% is the point Bettman stops, that is just as logical is yours.
Please tell me, since you know everything, how many hours a hockey player spends at the arena per week. Please continue bringing it up in every subsequent post you make as well, to prove to everyone how smart you are. I already conceded my estimation was off, which isn't enough for you apparently, so go ahead and continue lacing your posts with more not so subtle jabs at my intelligence.
It's literally impossible to argue without because you've convinced yourself you're right about everything, yet you've done more cheerleading for the players than anyone has done for the owners.
