Could the end be near?

I am talking about the lockout of course!

Before I state my thoughts, check out the optimism oozing from Berger and Sheridan.

And a tweet from Berger:

People understand what's happening, right? The table is set for a deal to be agreed to by Sunday. If either side messes it up, inexcusable.

So basically what seem like doom and gloom from the press conferences after yesterday's meetings, is actually hope and according to those two (and I think we'll see other writers jump on the optimism bandwagon). I was always optimistic during this lockout but after hearing their press releases I really stopped believing in a full season (and once we start losing games it gets harder to make a deal) but in a few hours Berger and Sheridan released their articles and my optimism was back! Now I don't want to get everybody's hopes up in case this doesn't work out in time, but I'm saying the sides have already narrowed the gap by so much that I can't see them not making a deal.

 

My guess, Thursday Stern and Hunter talk and agree to meet Sunday. Then on Sunday or Monday a deal is agreed upon giving the players 51 and the owners 49 of the BRI, no hard cap, amnesty clause, shorter contracts and and a smaller MLE. C'mon we all know that Stern will repent his sins on Yom Kippur and lead to jolly make up with the players.
