From what I could tell, the players were happy to play with the current CBA anyway, so any lockout would have had the fans against the owners anyway.

And actually, with what the PA is proposing, it's doing more than getting the fans on their side. If I'm following the situation correctly, the players are saying they'll take a smaller percentage of the revenue for the next 3 years, while at the same time, proposing more revenue sharing to help out smaller markets.

So in essence, they're not only getting the fans on their side by proposing a fair offer (or fairer offer than the owners), but they're pitting the small market owners (those that take the most advantage of revenue sharing) against the large market owners.

A house divided and all that.
