Ignorance is bliss.
If I was a player around for the last lockout I would realize how foolish sitting out a year was. How ultimately it gained me no leverage in negotiations and succeeded only in taking a year's salary off of my career earnings.
If anything, the ignorance is among the PA members in terms of what holding out will actually accomplish. When we look back on this deal, I have no doubt that they players will be viewed as having been "bent over" again.
