Thats not exactly true though, because no-one knows how the original offer would have ended up long term. CBAs never unfold the way they are expected to over multiple years. All that we know is numerous players who went through the last lockout said it wasnt worth it.

They are holding the fans hostage over greed and ego. Thats not really worthy of respect.
