Get back in the room and keep bargaining instead of having this circus sideshow and upsetting fans more. People are beyond livid and they pull a ridiculous stunt like this evening? They closed the gap on all of these other major issues quickly, then throw up their hands over term and have a meltdown because of it?

That is simply unreal...
Owners wanted contract term limits and the CBA to last a good while so we can avoid this circus for quite awhile. I don't think they're being unreasonable.

It's pretty obvious what set the owners off. Them having a deal Tuesday night. Then Fehr comes back into it and promises the players more concessions from the owners. It backfired on them.

This mess is on the PA now. Lock them the **** out.
