This common business operating practice.
The only difference here is that this is a lockout, where Owners are withholding wages, until they can pay their employees less money so they can profit more themselves while the consumer (fans) pay the bills with no benefit from lower players salaries.
Oh Please!! This is as much a walkout as it is a lockout. The only reason players didn't walkout is because then they'd have to stay here and walk a picket line instead of go steal someone else's job overseas. But hey! It's not stealing if they're in another continent right?
Players had every opportunity to hit the table long before July or whenever it was!! They waited until the last minute and then cry and whine that they got locked out! Boo hoo, next time be faster.
There is a large section of these owners that are locking out so they may actually see a profit which I understand. There is also a number of teams who's bump in profit is going to go back into the increased revenue sharing the PA is demanding. The only people profiting at the minute are a few select teams and EVERY SINGLE player
