WINGING IT IN MOTOWN: “J.J. from Kansas” doubts the league’s offer will sit well with the players. Judging by Donald Fehr’s initial response, that appears the case.

PENSION PLAN PUPPETS: “chemmy” doesn’t believe the league’s proposal will bring an end to the lockout. Not on its own, it won’t, but if the PA makes a serious counterproposal which furthers negotiations, it could.
