And I believe that is the attitude of most fans. Frankly, THAT is exactly why these clowns (nhl and pa) can get away with this. If they had to start play in front of empty buildings...especially in normally good hockey towns...THEY'D never pull this crap again. Ever.
Well, I'm going to be one of those suckers. I'm not going to deny myself my favorite entertainment "to send a message." It is a business dispute between two parties which have nothing to do with me. It's not personal and it just isn't that important. I'll spend my money to entertain myself in other ways when my favorite entertainment is unavailable. When it becomes available again, I'll spend my money on it again. I'm not going to sit and pout because my favorite toy was taken away.
