Quote of the Day

"It goes back to a comment that David said to me several years ago, when he said this is what my owners have to have. And I said, 'Well, the only way you're going to get that is, you prepare to lock us out for a year or two.' And he's indicated to me that they're willing to do it. So my belief and contention is that everything that he's done has demonstrated that he's following that script."
