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.
If they're just going to give in every time, what's to stop the owners from doing this again... and again... and again. At least putting up a fight hurts the owners too.
