He can't keep quiet, he's a high profile, indeed the highest profile member of the union. There's no choosing sides here, he must stand steadfast with his players and using his profile to put a public face on this is what is expected of him. Silence or fence sitting is not an option.

Labor disputes are inherently nasty. If you're going to lose respect (and I don't believe anyone for a second when they say stuff like that) for people over what they have to say and do in the midst of a work stoppage, then go find a cave, cover your eyes and stick your fingers in your ears for the next two months.
