Donald Fehr talks about distrust between the owners and the players
"We had a long history of bad blood and the inevitable distrust that that sowed. With that lead up going in 1994 what clearly happened was two things. The owners decided as a group that they wanted to teach the players a lesson, that was first. And secondly, they came to a revenue sharing consensus on their own which required them to pay for it by imposing a salary cap which would have drastically reduced salaries. And salary caps are just not something that players are interested in for obvious economic reasons."
