If the players simply conceded everything the owners proposed the owners would still be back at the end of the deal demanding more. This is a fact and there is absolutely no evidence to refute it.
There is really no evidence to the contrary either. The league was never 'healthy' during any of those negotiations so we don't really know what a profitable league would look like. You would assume if the owners (on the whole) were making money they would be a lot less willing to miss games. Making any amount of money is better than losing any amount of money (something the players, or the Hostess bakers, seem to not understand)
