Considering all of Bettmans offers have been take it or leave it, we both know that isnt the case.
PA was being realistic when they went public, a deal should be imminent, if the sides have this as the difference another couple 12 hour days of negotiaiting would have convinced one another what they both really want and we would have gotten a deal settled (Fehr said the PA wants a shorter CBA so new players can vote, which is fair, owners want short contracts, which is also fair,). Instead Bettman said what he did to try and get players to crack and fans to turn on the PA.
Its just stupidity now.
