"They say it's our turn, or whatever, but they don't want to negotiate until we start missing some checks," he said. "I don't see anything happening for the next couple months.

What? Comment #5 .... deleated? All I said is:

The only way this ends any time soon is if enough players like Dan become a painful Boil on the Fehrer's arse and order him back to the negotiating table and not leave till a deal is done!

Unreal!
