Essentially that would be conceding that not only are unions useless... they are detrimental to the players and the system.

I don't think it's hyperbole because it's more oft brought up in academic discussions about sports labor economics and what's effective or ineffective. Clearly, the lockout tool is showing that owners can indeed get what they want as long as they're willing to outwait the players.
