Isn't that what lawyers do? Aren't Bettman and Fehr lawyers?

Do you know what a concession is?

If you originally have 1$ and you go down to 65 then you are conceding 35.

Not if $1 was obviously absurd and not a serious offer in the first place.

When the number isn't realistic, it's not a concession.

If the PA originally proposed they get 90% of the revenue amd the 'settled' at 50%, that's not a concession

I'm not talking about an offer. If the offer that you make is lower than what the previous CBA is, then you are conceding.

Have you ever bought a used car, FyC? When the seller starts by offering it at $5000 when its true value is clearly only $2500 and then you haggle it down to $2500, the seller really hasn't given you any concessions.

It's quite sad that "concession" is a term relevant here. You aren't conceding anything, you're trying to get hockey playing again.

You guys are misinterpreting my comments.

If you physically get 100$/year, and you are forced to change to 65$/year, then you are conceding 35$/year

Whether those concessions are warranted, I don't know and don't care.

I had no idea how much they were getting. I was just stating that Brooks logic would be true if he means concede in the same way as I posted. I don't know if he did.

Don't the players realize with a higher cap for next season comes higher escrow rates?

They absolutely hate escrow
