People forget the support Goodenow had and how his willingness to protract that negotiaition got him canned. Players cannot afford to play lawyer games.
I think its hard to imagine players having a resolve to continue this to year 2. And when they get their agreement its pretty hard to sell to the fans that it wasn't our fault ! When the CBA likely will resemble a lot like the one they rejected.
