Michele Roberts: The things I can control have been communicated to the players and they’ve made decisions. So let me start with the All-Star game: no control. All-Star is something that’s within the complete discretion of the league. It is not something that the union can veto or otherwise prohibit. Once the decision is made to have the game, we can certainly engage in the conditions of play. But the decision to hold the All-Star game, to have All-Star weekend, we had no role in that. And if the players didn’t understand that, they certainly were made to understand it by me and others. It’s not our call. So all the b—hing about the game—call Adam, because I had nothing to do with this. They didn’t want to play. They wanted a break, but it wasn’t our call. So I just wanted to make sure that the conditions under which they would play were going to be safe.
