This kind of ignores the centrality of the owners-players conflict. They're the ones with money on the line, and they'll still be the interests that dictate what happens when/if a lockout rolls around. Appointing a neutral commissioner is just like paying a full-time mediator. He can talk and talk and cajole or whatever, but he's not going to unilaterally lead anyone anywhere without the will of the same two groups that are fighting now.
