I don't like Fehr and side with the owners 100%.
With that said, I'm beginning to think that Fehr and the players know something that we don't about the (true reality of the) owners situation and how much they(the owners) will lose if they don't play this season. He must also be going to this with a good idea that it is a only a bonus if it is resolved this season AND how much they(the players) can still get out of this if they wait until 2013-14. He must be selling this to the players with numbers that we are not necesarily privy to.
I just find it unusual for some players coming out saying that they back-up Fehr 100% unless they were told something that we don't know. I think there is perhaps more to this picture other than players simply toeing the "company line" and showing solidarity. I don't believe the players can be, as a whole, this stupid unless there was more to it that meets the eye.
Thoughts---(other than the players are this stupid)?
