This sounds like they're giving up on collective bargaining to me:

"Ive been in conference calls with 200-300 players. We just feel at this point the union has done everything they can for us and were not getting anywhere. Its time for us to go in a different direction."

It's usually sarcastic wit, not the drama so much.

I think people are putting too much value on what individuals say. It's not really relevant, and this is dynamic. Someone who didn't imagine decertification as an option in September may feel differently now.

Precedence is clear though. The lockout may be deemed legal, but that doesn't mean the players have to remain in a union, or that they're precluded from filing anti trust claims.
