    I think if a deal gets done in the next day or two (currently extremely pessimistic) I'll be even more frustrated than I am now.

    If and that's a big if ... all it takes to get a deal done was a hard deadline, it should have been done a month ago.
     
  2. Okay.....

    Shouldn't this be in the rant thread?

    This is part of the problem..

    If the fans and talking heads keep saying they will be even more angry if a deal gets done now and all this will have been pointless..

    It does nothing to help put pressure on either side..

    I know where the frustration comes in.. I feel it too...

    But those who want the season just to be canned so we can forget about it... you arn't helping anything.. your just justifying what both sides are/have done...


    There is.. nor never will be any excuse for either sides actions..

    Plus a NHLPA leader who refuses to negotiate without the clock at 11:58:59 PM.If this soap opera ends with an agreement in the next 24 hours,it better be a 6-8 year deal.No more Goodenow and no more Bettman and no more stupid comments from the players :shakehead

    I dont call Goodenow out on this... He's just doing a job and thats his tactic.. No matter what, he may get a great deal out of this if he plays coy and goes by his book.

    Goodenow doesnt have to give two shiats about the game to do his job, Gary does

    It's the players who hired him who are to fault.... You talk ethics in this lockout and you have to point the finger at two different people... Gary Bettman and the Players responsible for Goodenow's hiring.

    You and I have been thinking alike.

    It'll be absolutely rediclous if they somehow get a deal done this late on the calender. I don't think it'll happen, but if they do get a deal done I'm just going to shake my head...
     
  12. You're going to shake your head, but you will still be sucked into watching the games. Admit it.

    Exactly, anyone here that says they won't watch any semblance of a season is down-right lying.

    People've been saying that there will be a deal, but no season... its TOO late in the calendar to have a season.

    If you want to see the NHL commit PR suicide.. they'd do just that. Sign a CBA tomorrow, then cancel the season Wednesday, they aren't stupid like that train of thought is.

    dont get it

    I still dont get why the fans say that they would rather the NHL just say **** it and try again next year... I mean dont you realize that yuo are just delaying another round of BS "negotiations" in the fall of next year? I do not understand how that is better.

    We aren't keeping our tickets if there is a shortened season this year, but our ticket rep said that indeed she would make our tickets avaiable next year or something... but I'd still watch, just no use in spending money on a sham of a season with a non-meaningful schedule...


    Lets hope something gets done so this 152 day piece of **** rots away.

    I never said I wouldn't watch. That wasn't the point of my post.

    A deal could have, and should have been done a month ago at least.

    I want them to get a deal done as badly as anyone else, and I'll be the first one in line when the games start.

    Those of us these boards, cheking the web 12 times a day, to see if anything has happened ..... like a bunch of crack addicts ... we're the ones the owners are banking on to fill the building again when the games eventually begin.

    Yeah, I check at least a dozen times, if not more per day, despite the fact that I have absolutely zero hope that the season will be salvaged.

    Bottom line, I love hockey so much it kills me. If I'm not playing, I wanna watch it. I'm completely obsessed with it.

    I probably need a shrink :D
