Like I've said I see it as the longer this goes on the more Fehr "wins" as a labor negotiator & I don't think the players see that.
? It's more about not letting the large market clubs set the market rate that the smaller markets just can't keep up with. This has nothing to do with convincing them how worthy of a franchise you are, it's all about money and always will be.
I don't know how on earth the longer this goes the more Fehr wins, if anything it's the opposite. The financial bite will start to hit the players hard as will the reality of playing in inferior leagues at lesser pay should it continue on further. His legacy will be one who passed up a good deal only to wait longer and have the players settle for a lesser deal down the road. It's almost comical how these players seemingly cannot learn from history. At this point they've already lost more money than they'll be able to get back through negotiations, every additional game lost is just icing on that cake.
