Now, I must admit I was wrong, too. I made the same mistake the owners did. I underestimated DeMaurice Smith and the players. I figured they'd fold and allow ownership to dictate the terms of a new deal.
I'm glad Smith and the players stayed together. I wish they'd hold out a little longer. Yes, they would run the risk of getting attacked by the media lapdogs who are as desperate for a deal as the owners. It would be worth the risks.
Now that the owners have been exposed, it would be nice to see their puppets exposed, too.
