Exactly. People want to throw all of this away over frustration from a lockout thats been going on for two months? Knee jerk reaction.

I don't think there's even a chance that the league folds as a result of this negotiation. If a situation arose where league collapse was even on the distant horizon, one camp or the other would take a short-term raw deal to save the league as a whole. While people think that they're approaching collapse as is, they aren't even close to that situation. If this season is cancelled and there's still no deal as next season approaches, then they're flirting with disaster. As it is, it's a frustrating situation that some people are overreacting to in my opinion.
