i think a lot of players were surprised not everyone was on their side in this. not that it mattered much to them but there they are best served by keeping their mouth shut, just as teams/the league can't be too vocal about criticizing players. Players are a marketing tool for the teams and fan opinion or general popularity makes a difference in teams' commitment to retaining certain players or bumping their paychecks a little. These are the guys they're going to be sending on good-will visits to hospitals, sitting in at fan events, etc.
