Green was part of the Hamilton Tigers Players revolt in mid March, 1925, being the 1st players strike in NHL History

The Tigers had a great 1924-25 NHL season, finishing first overall. They were favourites to win the Stanley Cup, but wanted $200 backpay for 6 extra games that season that were not covered under the dates of their contract, and they wanted to be paid by team owner, Percy Thompson before the playoffs started. NHL president Frank Calder stepped in, denied their claim and suspended the players and fined them $200 each. The Hamilton Tigers were then sold for $75,000 to "Big Bill" Dwyer for a team to play in New York as the Americans.

Red Green is the brother of Hockey Hall of Famer Wilfred 'Shorty' Green.
