I see your point, they don't want to go up against playoff football at any level. But if they have it on a Saturday during the NFL playoffs, you go up against maybe 1 NFL game, in a different time slot.

Moving it for the lockout would allow the league to say something along the lines of "we moved it for the lockout, and had a better result on a different date, so we'll keep it there" rather than look they they're just giving up going up against NFL/College Football.
If they were to move the Winter Classic they would likely move it either the Sunday following the Super Bowl or put it in the Sunday during the bye week before the Super Bowl (current ASG date) and move the ASG to the week after the Super Bowl (which it was played in during the ABC era)
