You don't get to choose your negotiating partners; the league is going to have get over it's fear and disdain of Fehr and sit down and stop acting like a bunch of greedy and spoiled babies.

Daly's already come out and said contracting rights are 'the hill the leagues ready to die on.' So you can stop pretending they'll readily come down on their hard line stance.

The league didn't have their hired representative, why can't the players talk for them selves about what they want? The owner's feel that they are already giving more than any other major league is good luck getting anymore out of them.
