It's hard to have a first offer if one side refuses to meet all spring and all summer to talk about the issues... which the PA did.

I think Fehr and his player reps have been prepared to go to war and lose the season from the beginning if they had to, but I don't think the majority of the players were ever completely on their side and it's start to show:

The hardliners and player reps have had their fun, I think the pressure from Joe Player is going to result in a deal before Christmas.
