Won't happen.

It's now mob rule with an open forum where they can feel like they are participating. Whether it's bad for public relations or not is irrelevant, the only thing that matters now is that the players agree with each other and have a villain to focus on so Fehr can keep them in line.

Unfortunately, it will probably result in a longer lockout than the last two since it will be harder for a small minority to take control and negotiate for the majority, which is what happened back in 05.
