Repeat After Me

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

Does any of this sound familiar?

A commissioner saying there are "enormous consequences at play ... we think that we made very fair proposals."

Was that Gary Bettman two weeks ago? No, it was David Stern in October 2011.

"Our indication today to go to a 50-50 deal demonstrates even more potential movement on our part ... so we haven't made a secret of the fact that we'd very much like to make a deal."

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly? No, NBA deputy Commissioner Adam Silver.

"The players are clearly of the mind that it's an unacceptable proposal. But because of their commitment to the game and their desire to play, they're saying to us that we want you to go back, see if you can go back [and] get a better deal."

NHL Players' Association executive director Donald Fehr? No, National Basketball Players Association executive director Billy Hunter.
