You are ignoring the point. It isn't about ability. It's about entirely different avenues. Players did not have the same ability to speak out, on their own, during the last lock out. Their comments had to be passed along through another media source. Now they can make any comment they please from their cell phones while ordering a burger, and it will be seen by thousands of people instantly.

The times are obviously different. There is no disputing that.
