Don’t win, share; that’s what works

The lockout takes me back to the stormy days of the 1980s, when we saw strikes in ’82 and ’87 and a decertification strategy by the players union in 1989 that is being reenacted today. The strike of ’87 was a classic case of the owners winning too big. All it did was breed contempt and cause the whole issue to be revisited a few years later. Flash forward to 2006 when the players won too big and that’s why, in my opinion and in the opinion of others, the whole thing has to be revisited again. Beating the other guy isn’t winning. Compromise is winning. Sharing is winning. Agreeing to be partners is winning.
