with my tinfoil hat on:

that's why the public nature of this whole thing has severely crippled negotiations. Attacks are volleyed back and forth and there's no opportunity for Fehr to fake a reputation "win" in the negotiations because of it. They could have been done by now with the last offer, i bet, if the official story was "Well the league really caved in on the most important issue to us, what had been the sticking point through the whole process: contract length. The players felt they deserved the security of seven year deals where the league was insisting on capping them at 5." or some ********. I'm not even kidding.
