The NHL completely turned this back onto the players. If they don't accept a 50/50 the players will be hated and everyone will turn on them. They just showed a HUGE amount of willingness to get things done, Fehr better be ready to accept this and get the ball rolling.
You aren't thinking clearly. You aren't traveling with a TEAM, nor are you playing a SPORT. You probably sell printers. No bonding needed.
You are right, I'm not playing a sport, or on a team... but these are grown men who are professionals & have a right to some privacy. They can do their team buliding stuff on off days, dinners, etc... but I think they have the right to have some down time away from their JOB just as much as anyone else does.
BTW, I'm in financial reporting, I dont sell printers.
The Pa will reject it. Now the only thing I see being a problem is the immediate jump to 50/50. There is definitely a deal to be made here tho. All they need to do is figure out how to phase it to 50/50 and we're golden!
