Any worker can decide to not show for work and experienced the consequences which would be different for many. That is what he is doing. He did not create the consequences; the players union and the owners created the consequences. His choice does not make him wrong, it just means some disagree or like me wish he had chosen differently.
I also think you are wrong if you think some employees do not get treated differently than coworkers if they are demonstrably better than those coworkers.
While the bolded is true, most employers would not put up with it and would fire the employee unless they were essential and in that case, they would immediately begin finding a replacement so it they wouldn't be placed in that position again.
This is out of character for him and I suspect the wrong guy has his ear right now. Family can make you do foolish things.
