The fact that the owners show absolutely no hesitation to lock the player out as a negotiating tactic is both "bad faith negotiating" and an affront to the game and its fans.

The owners tabled an offer that was leaps and bounds better than its opening offer only after they had locked the players out. If the owners truly employed the lockout only as a "last resort," then we would have seen a better offer from them before they were canceling games.
