Trust me, I'm not happy about it either. But one thing I've learned from the last lockout is that the NHL and the PA view us fans as dollar signs and nothing more. Tickets and concessions have never been more expensive. $25 to park across from SC? Some ungodly amount of cash for a jersey. And we're all supposed to lap it up because we're consumers? Eff all that noise. Bettman, Fehr, and Luc can all shove it as far as I'm concerned. I don't owe any of them a damn thing. I'll watch from afar but if they all think they are getting more of my hard earned cash anytime soon they got another thing coming. Kripies, these players make on average more in an hour than I do in a month.
I sincerely hope attendance and sponsorship is down dramatically league wide when they come back. Maybe then they'll both realize that the single most important factor in all this is the fan. Without the fan the seat is empty, the player doesn't get his pay, and the owner doesn't get his profit. Not since I became a fan back in '02 have I cared less about the NHL.
A little bird told me the lockout is going to end tomorrow. Then again, he told me I am also going to win the lottery (I don't if it's going to happen in that order).
But if he's lying, I mean, like mocking me, I might have to get even.
*goes to read How To Kill A Mockingbird*
Hmmm, talk about false advertisement, this book didn't teach me how to kill a mocking bird. Sure it taught me about racial tolerance, but what good does that do now?
I guess, I'll just have to flip him the bird if he lied to me.
Its a done deal! Nhl season starts nov 2
It's about time somebody proposed something!
