Fehr's? MLB had 18 years of labor peace and counting. The plan he helped institute in 1994 works. Record salaries for players, record profits for owners, and parity for the fans: 7 different teams have won the world series in the past 10 years.
That's the difference. Fehr left behind a legacy of success. Bettman? Just more lockouts every time, and it's clear from these negotiations that he's very focused on the next lockout.
Another poster mentioned Fehr's 8 work stoppages, if true, who has the better record, Bettman or Fehr?
In hockey 9 different teams won in the last 10 years there was hockey. Almost no one believes there is parity in baseball. Just look at the team salaries.
You really don't think Fehr is thinking about the next negotiation, then you are kidding yourself.
