if the players had negotiated when the owners first asked all this could have easily been avoided.
why do you think that? this current situation is not a result of not having sufficient time to negotiate things. if anything, even after they started to negotiate, the talks suffered from a lack of urgency by both sides.
i think that negotiations during the season would have been horrible - they would have been a huge distraction to the players. and long term negotiations would have presented an even great opportunity for the sides to get entrenched in their positions and hate each other.
