Would those that dislike the union members' behavior be equally upset if those players took jobs driving trucks or teaching golf lessons?Not at all.So why be upset because they are trying to play hockey, something they're actually good at? The key here is that they aren't breaking any understandings they have about betraying the union because there are no picket lines to cross and the operational status of the league is not within their control.Here's an analogy for what's going on right now. Let's say that unionised workers at a Ford plant were locked out in a collective bargaining dispute. In response, they packed their bags and headed down to a non-union Toyota plant, and said, "Hey, we'd like to get some work here." In response, the Toyota plant manager said, "Great, we'd love to have you, you guys are top-notch workers. Just give me a minute, and I'll fire enough guys to make room for you."Cody
