It seems like events of today prove that right. Fehr comes back, owners do not show up for session, Fehr has press conference, owners reject deal by voicemail lol. It's pretty clear they are trying to disenfranchise him but this will not work. This will leave players believing owners are trying to take advantage of them without adequate representation and that will make them distrustful. So, the owners need to move off that tactic I think. Fehr may be a genuine PITA and an impediment in some way to a deal getting done soon but there's no way the players came this far to throw him under the bus and take a deal with lots of give backs.
