I don't blame the players because they deserve to be fairly compensated for their work. I don't suddenly start to demonize and despise them because they'll be making pretty substantial amounts of money whether or not the deal is fair. I think that it is admirable to make a principled stand for pushing and increasing workers rights and moving towards a more fair and healthy agreement for both sides. I'm especially not one to disrespect somebody on the sole basis that they had an emotional reaction due to significant amounts of their salary that they'll make during their career being on the line. Most hockey players aren't exactly the best educated in society and I think having strong reactions to the lockout is fairly natural and understandable given their position.
