This is where both of you are wrong. There was no good faith on either side with regards to negotiations and bargaining. Right now, both the players and the owners are under the gun to get this deal done lest there not be any football next year. There was no good faith in the reduction of the $600 million, nor was there in the vet pension. Like wise, the players are striking (not THAT kind of strike) like a slew of cobras and are looking good doing it, or at least will for a few more days before the court decides on the lockout. There is not a good faith situation in this because one side is a conceited, backstabbing group of bastards, while the other is backpeddling and being forced into capitulating to the other side's demands. The players currently hold serve, and Gene Upshaw is not on the court this time.
