anyone have another link for this?
Goodenow will have a conference call at 745 and PC at 830
Hopefully Goodenow will say this again about the PA's Dec 9 Proposal..
And then explain why it even matters that their are triggers in the new proposal. Because he himself said that the cost-savings will be realized for years to come. According to them the PA proposal will fix everything.
We got spirit! yes we do! We got spirit! How bout you!
Dueling press conferences... where is Zell Miller when you need him.
I love PA types asking to define revenues (which is a good point). Let's see Bob define cost savings.
First question that needs to be question, "Bob, why can't you guarantee your own proposal?" Isn't it fair for the league to have triggers to protect them for the offer not being what you say it will do.
next question should be, "Bob, are you prepared to withold from any cap agreement forcing players to have a smaller piece in a smaller pie in the future?"
Next question - "Bob is there any chance you could resign - now?"
oh the humanity.................
What will happen? Any guesses?
Shave Bettmans head, give him a banjo, then give Goodenow a guitar and a cowboy hat and.. voilla!
this doesn't sound good so far...
Only if they agree to beat each other over the head.
I'm calling in.
How convenient, the first question goes to Tim Pinnocchio... I mean Panaccio.
recap anyone? i can't hear it
no wiggle room in the proposal.
Doesn't sound particularly good.
goodenow says that he cant see any wiggle room with the 4 trigger points
-The 4 trigger points a reflection of their "triple cap" proposal, already twice rejected. Doesn't feel they can negotiate off of them.
-They will be discussing and looking for new concepts in their meetings tonight/tomorrow.
still taking questions.
