Winnipeg hasn't earned the right to walk into a CBA negotiations and dictate to other franchises that have either 1) been bleeding money the last 7-8 years or 2) been paying out a good chunk of their profit into revenue sharing and are now being asked to pony up even more.

If Jacobs said it, I'd guarantee just about every other owner in that room was thinking the same thing.

No one in that room is going to accept a crappy or badly compromised deal for the next 7-8 years just because Winnipeg was itching to maintain their 1-year-momenteum.

When the next CBA rolls around and Winnipeg has paid more of their dues and put in a good 7+ years in revenue sharing or just been in the business to have more skin in the game, then sure it will be a different story then.
