The owners weren't blameless, but to me it was always much more on the players.

Yeah Yeah I know it was a lockout not a strike but the players knew they had to give back, and they didn't even bother to start seriously negotiating until December.
As a union member... I thank god, that you are not involved with my union...

Unions don't give up anything without some degree of concessions. Everything that union members have has been earned through years of negotiation. You don't just start giving things away, because the other side determines that they want it back.
