They won't agree to a new deadline for an old deal, but they'll be happy to negotiate a new deadline for a new deal. By that they'll mean much less expensive deal. You will know what that means, and I will know what that means but the majority of the public, following this ordeal much less closely will not understand the ramifications, will take these guys at face value, and will expect they're trying to work out something reasonable. It may be an official end for you, but not for most.
