So true, both sides have to be worried about losing something to stop these frequent lockouts. That won't happen until most teams are returning profits. It's bad when teams are losing less money during a lockout then if the season was being played. For the owners who do turn a profit, they know the cutback in player salaries over the course of the contract will be much more than a season or two of revenue. The players seem to ignore this and then wonder how owners can be so content to wait them out.
