The shift by Daly was the PR war with the PA. Fehr said close, Daly doesn't think so. The mediators gave him ammunition for "far apart" last time. IMO, the whole mediator thing may be on a separate thread itself. They may be looking for ammunition for an impasse. Does a mediator's opinion hold weight with the courts?
I partially agree, but the cap is in place because so many teams could not afford all these overpaid players
