Why so much hatred and criticism towards the players?

Their pay has done nothing but sky rocket during times of recession in a league that is having financial trouble but you hear them whining about taking a pay cut. That will get no sympathy from me as I think a REAL 50/50 split is more than far for them. Add to it that they refused to talk to the NHL during last season when offered, not to hard to side with the owners if you look at it.
I know the owners spending and cap circumventing contracts is a big reason this league us in bad shape but I can stomach that more as they are doing it to be competitive, the players just want more money now. If the players were fighting for future players contracts or something like that I would be more tempted to support them but all they care about is making as much as they can now.
