One thing I can guarantee you, I'd be less pigheaded and egotistical than either Fehr or Bettman. And from the sidelines, I can tell you that it looks like some humility and collaboration would help this situation greatly.Strangelove wrote:*Strangelove shows up dressed as the dread pirate Roberts*Mondi wrote: If Bettman was truly a smart guy, he'd have brokered a deal a long time ago using collaborative techniques so that both sides walked away from the table happy with the outcome.
Nice Mondi, no one, including Bettman, could even imagine that POSSIBILITY!
Wow, must be nice to be a super-genius.
Yes, it's truly a shame Bettman isn't Mondi-smart....

Your faith in free markets and unrestrained capitalism means you're an owners guy, that's fine for you and other every-man-for-himselfer. Just pile onside with the richest businessmen, they are the smartest and most worthy anyway aren't they SL? But, for the thoughtful folk out there, there is a deal that would make both sides happy and wouldn't require the mindset that one side has the crush the other.
I mean if only everyone was SL-smart, the selfless people would just be dead or at least serving their aggressive Friedmanite masters.
