And I don't really believe a word Dater tweets. Why is it that he has quotes that nobody else has, yet he won't say who the "source" is?
Who knows, but when you look at the quote from the owner posted earlier, and all the rumors...the fact that they were real close and then it fell apart...I certainly can believe that it has Fehr's handwriting on it. What "concessions" were made by either side is purely speculation, although the league senses they have the upper hand and the leverage, and just like last time, they can hold out longer than the players, and they're not going to budge until that changes. Clearly Fehr thought differently.
