07:06 AM ET 07.12 | NHLPA director Donald Fehr may well return to his former post. With the condition of cancer-stricken union chief Michael Weiner not improving, MLB Players Association officials have discussed the possibility of a return of his predecessor, [Fehr], sources told Yahoo! Sports. Fehr, who led the baseball union for 26 years through collusion cases and labor battles, including the infamous 1994 strike, ceded the union's executive director position to Weiner in 2009. Whether Fehr would consider rejoining the union in a senior management role or as an advisor is unclear, and sources said Fehr has neither discussed a return nor has any inclination to leave the NHLPA. His name nevertheless surfaced.

Fehr should do everybody a favor and get lost.

Maybe he could start by helping PEDS users and making sure they have guaranteed contracts with salaries 10% higher than non-users?

No good can come from this guy coming back to MLB. Him and Selig need to buy an island somewhere in Bermuda and leave all of us fans alone.

He cancelled the 1994 World Series, as I have never forgotten the guy since.

Under Fehr's guidance of the MLBPA, the game suffered through it's worst era in history. As if strikes, cancelled championships, free agency and bloated, guaranteed salaries weren't bad enough, Fehr and the MLBPA protected and enabled a generation of juicers. He and Selig are both self-serving pariahs.

The only guy in all of baseball that might've been worse than Marvin Miller.
