I have been a member of this board for some time. I have been here since the beginning of the whole lockout. I am not a pessimist.
Now that I have those basic facts stated, here is my point.
I really want to believe that a deal is in place and they are just crossing the t's and dotting the i's. But all this hoopla reminds me a lot of what happened this past february, when everyone here was saying the season would be cancelled and was very optimistic.
The same stuff is happening now. People are saying that a deal is around the corner, a deal is happening very soon, a lot of that. But as the days go by without an actual announcement of a deal, I am beginning to find it hard to believe that there is going to be one in the near future.
