The ongoing collective bargaining agreement negotiations between the National
Hockey League and the NHL Players Association are starting to stir up familiar
feelings for Mathieu Schneider. Steve Young Authentic Jersey . Schneider –
who was active through both the 1994-95 and 2004-05 NHL lockouts as a player –
says the players are frustrated by the prospect of the current work stoppage
resulting in game cancellations. This time around, he is representing the
players as Special Assistant to NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr. “The fact
that were sitting here in this position once again, of course, its frustrating
for the players,” Schneider told TSN on Monday. The Players Association has yet
to table a counter-proposal to the leagues latest CBA offer, which the NHL filed
on Sept. 12. The league voted unanimously to lock out the players the next day
while both sides continued discussions. “In each proposal that weve brought
forward, we have moved,” Schneider said. “Were the only ones that have been
giving in this entire negotiation. Everything that they have put forward takes
more from the players; on the contracting issues, on the straight share of the
revenue and thats the frustrating part for the players. Our next offer will be
giving more back to the owners, theyre next offer will be taking more from the
players.” One of the issues in negotiations thus far has been the division of
hockey-related revenues. With early proposals from the league believed to have
redefined hockey-related revenue, the most recent is believed to operate on the
terminology used in the existing CBA. “We started off with them asking for $450
million per year and now theyre at $330 million per year,” Schneider says. “My
question is: what are we supposed to do in this situation?” While the players
have stated they understand that reaching a deal may require concessions in
terms of clubs salary commitments, the PA has been vocal about its refusal to
accept an immediate rollback similar to the one conceded at the start of the
previous CBA in 2005. “Were giving the owners an opportunity to grow themselves
out of their problems,” Schneider said in reference to the PAs proposals to
date. “We want them to recognize what weve put on the table. Over the next five
years, our last offer could give them over $1 billion in concessions if they
grow the game. For them to dismiss the seven per cent growth rate, I think, is a
little ridiculous.” Schneider did directly address the PAs recent campaign
dubbing the current situation an “NHL Owners Lockout”. “What happened during the
last lockout was the players took a lot of the heat,” Schneider said of the
labour stoppage that resulted in the cancellation of the 2004-05 season. Those
negotiations largely centred around the decision to implement a salary cap.
“This is a decision by the owners to lock out the players,” he said. “The
players wanted to keep playing. There was never mention of the players going on
strike and we wanted the fans to know that, essentially, we were all fans
growing up playing this game, probably the biggest fans.” Schneider believes the
concessions made to reach the previous deal were in part what has led to the
existing problems in negotiations. “Weve had record revenues, record growth of
the game, record attendance,” Schneider said, “and still were sitting here today
in a system that the owners designed.” “We dont want to be sitting here going
through this again in four years, which is where we think well be operating
under the current system.” Jerry Rice Jersey . With the move Thursday,
the Mavericks took advantage of the one-time provision in the new CBA allowing
them to let Haywood go without his remaining contract counting against their
salary cap or luxury tax. Colin Kaepernick Camo Jersey . —Danny
Mwanga and Jack Jewsbury each scored, Portland tightened its sagging defence and
the Timbers knocked off the league-leading San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 on Tuesday
night. http://www.nfl49ersfansstore.com/nike-joe-staley-49ers-jersey/
. Vandor, 37, and Jarvis, 28, fell behind the top two crews. Questions arose as
to whether the duo would post a late sprint—asignature stint of Canadian coach
Mike Spracklens crews—but rather than expendtoo much energy, they decided to
reserve that power for the repechage. Patrick Willis White Jersey . Cook hurt his
right foot and ankle when a defender fell on it during a preseason game on
Thursday night. He didnt think it was a severe injury at first and stayed in the
game. He showed up at Paul Brown Stadium on Monday expecting to practice. Patrick Willis Game Jersey .ca! Kerry, Can
you explain the lack of a penalty to James Neal in the third period of Sundays
game? His hit was late, he left his feet and targeted the players
head.WASHINGTON—Brian McNamee has conceded that the first time Roger Clemens
asked for help with a “booty shot,” the pitcher did not specifically use the
word “steroids.” Under cross-examination from Clemens lawyer, McNamee said that
he assumed Clemens was referring to steroids when asking for the shot while
pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1998. McNamee said he was under the
impression Clemens waas already doing steroids. Alex Smith Red Jersey. Clemens lawyer Rusty
Hardin challenged why McNamee thought that. McNamee responded that he had no
physical evidence, but he referenced a conversation he overheard Clemens have
with another player, Jose Canseco, but could not provide specifics. Clemens
request for help came less than a month before the date on which McNamee says he
gave Clemens his first injection. ’ ’ ’
