The owners/businessmen go through this sort of thing on a daily basis, they're used to it. If they made every negotiation personal, they wouldnt be running a business for very long.

Fehr is just assing fuel to the fire by going on radio and talking about a lack of respect. What good does that do? It just stokes the flames.
I suspect that the threat of a $1 Million fine is also keeping owners' comments out of the press.
