Two owners and Daly in the room were not able to close a deal anymore than the players with S. Fehr.

A simple one word answer was all that was needed to move forward or they were still at status quo.
Actually, I believe that the MLB deal was done without Don Fehr in the room because he burned too many bridges with the owners. Steve Fehr was more than capable of handling things.
