Why so much hatred and criticism towards the players?

I've got no hate for the players. And I don't begrudge their high salaries. And I have no problem with private sector unions. But they are being idiots in holding out for a better deal that they aren't going to get. They don't have the leverage. It's not admirable or noble to do something pointless that is doomed to fail. They aren't the oppressed working man fighting against The Man.
The players are a wealthy elite who, in their effort to become even wealthier, have drastically misjudged how much leverage they have. And now, out of pride or anger, are refusing to admit they screwed up. There's nothing morally good or evil about it, but it is stupid. When you have a weak hand you fold.
