    you're probably right. and then they'll keep putting off a press conference until about 12am at which point they'll give a meaningless speech.

  13. If someone only had a fly swatter... :eek: (just kidding man)
     
  14. Here's the Fan590 link again... http://www.jr-digital.com/asx/cjcl.asx

    They're just talking NBA (groan) right now but have 3 people at the ACC so I'm guessing they'll have news as soon as it happens.

    Woahhhhh someone woke up on the wrong side today. There has to be some sort of humor to shield away the truth that there wont be hockey for a very long time...even if it only lasts for a few seconds.

    The Office is a fantastic show. I am liking Trailer Park Boys a lot on BBCA as well. Does anyone else watch that? It's new here in the states but it's f'in funny.

    Unfortunately, I think everyone is getting excited for nothing again, are you guys really expecting Bettman to come out with something other than some form of cost certainty, he might have a few items that will surprise us, but the players will take the offer, mull it over and they'll continue negotiating until they agree or until the season is officially cancelled, no announcement as to whether or not there will be a season, will be made today, both sides are just starting the negotiating process, it won't take 5 days to get the season started again, expect more of the same of what you heard on Thursday, owners will offer something that has some form of cost certainty, but in their offer, they will have something that the players will at least look at and consider, anyways, that's just my opinion, but i'm also one of the few who thinks this will be resolved in time to have 1/2 a season, so :dunno:

    I'm not speculating on anything, I'm just curious as to what is going on.
