Why do you think its the players right to play and negotiate if the owners feel its detrimental to them?

I can easily flip this and say, why dont the players offer to play with a no strike agreement? They havent done that because it reduces their leverage. So i guess you cant say that a strike isnt possible because the players never offered it.

What if both sides agreed to keep talking/playing --- no lockout and no strike. What then?
