Complete crap. There's 700+ players. Expecting all 700 to be 100% on the same page after missing 3 months of work is completely unrealistic. There's absolutely going to be decent in the ranks. Especially when the two sides are not really that far apart - despite what they say.
Agreement - on money and pensions. Agreement that contract lengths are needed (5 yrs vs 8).
Yes there's still major things to sort out, but if both sides really wanted to get a deal done, it's not unrealistic for it to happen in short order.
