NHL CBA - Lockout. UPDATE(1/11) The Season's Back On! Let Fantasy Hockey Begin

Hi all:

Some of you may have followed my Boston Bruins thread and know how passionate a B's and NHL fan I am. Here we are, less than 2 weeks to the lockout deadline (Sept 15th) and all we hear is buzz words like "equitable" and "profitability". But today a new word fills up the headlines. "STALLED"!

So I'm starting this thread so anyone that wants to can voice their concerns and/or anger. Whether you think the players are at fault or the owners, let it fly...

I'll start.

Having lived through the last lockout under the waterfall of lies and false promises from Jeremy Jacobs, I lay the whole problem at the owners' doorstep. In back to back seasons they have seen their ratings and profits go up. Even in non-traditional hockey markets like Nashville. Also the return of the Jets to Winnipeg...

They couldn't WAIT to pull out the master locks because the beating they handed the players in the last lockout.

Look... Take your Winter Classic and Heritage Classic money... Bask in the fact that for the past 3 yrs, that the NHL Playoffs have been usurping NBA Playoffs ratings-wise...

AND GET THE DEAL DONE! Before soccer, NASCAR and any other sport try to take your place as a top 4 sport and attendance at the arenas is less than minor league baseball game being played in England.

There's my rant. Let's hear yours.
Home for Christmas. POR December 10-17th PTR
