So just to be clear:

The agreed upon terms were 6 owners and 6 players would meet, with neither side bringing the brass. The players show up with triple the amount of the agreed number, and the owners showed up with the brass.

No wonder a deal hasn't been done, neither side can follow the rules they set for themselves.

Harvard doesn't give athletic scholarships. He got in based on his academic merit.Harvard doesn't just hand out degrees either.

Just thought it was interesting. Last season Crosby was the NHL's highest paid player with endorcements and contract. Made something like 13million.

As you were..

They need more people there to sign on the dotted line...

I don't think all players are going to be there for the meeting with the owners. Think of it like an American Idol audition.

Is Bettman meeting with the governors at the same place as the players...or is my french just really bad?
Your french is not really bad because that's what it says.

Here in Detroit, Mike Illitch didn't attend college, and he's done just fine in the world of business.

Players have to worry about "business" ever six or seven years and they went out and hired the best in the business to represent them.

But because they're not caving as fast as the internet player haters want, they must be "stupid"

Oh, I know. I just thought this entire situation was funny. Both sides sort of double-crossing the other the way they did.

I may be wrong (my friiend got recruited by Cornell for football, this is how he explained it) but I believe the way it works for Ivy League is there is a tiered system for athletic recruits. Basically, the majority must have above some GPA limit, only x number are allowed between y and z GPA, etc. with less and less recruits allowed as the GPA decreases. Usually, this means that the couple recruits with the lowest GPA's are the most athletically talented, although I have no idea if that is the case here.

As a side note, my friend would have been able to play DI football for Cornell (not as a starter, but on the team for sure), but they said that his GPA was too low and would have put him in one of the lower tiers, and they were saving those spots for big impact players.

Bettman just follows the owners so of course he went with them. He would be lonely without them.

They should conduct the meetings wearing horse masks... That way it's a mystery who everyone is.

Actually that is not true at all. Many athletes are broke by making poor decisions during and after their career. I can name some off if you like?
