The owners asked for a couple of things for the concessions they were willing to give and the players got greedy and failed to hold up their end of the bargain. Don't blame the owners one bit after the crap the union pulled last week.
Beat me to it. ^^^
Obviously no one in this mess comes out smelling clean. Owners DO shoulder some of the blame. In my opinion however the majority of the blame goes to the players.
