Honestly, we have the ability to control how the players and owners go about thier business. The players are too greedy and close minded to accept a cap? That's fine. You want to make this lock-out long and ardurous, that's fine. Dont expect the fans to come back. And I dont just mean those way down south..I'm talking about TO, and Montreal, and many other franchises that are passionate about the game. Threaten them, dont show up..dont pay damn well 150 bucks on tickets where the players may only play half-assed. Dont give in to their greed. If we didnt show up to games and paid these crazy amounts of dollars for the tickets, they'd have no revenue and the fact is they wouldnt be able to make the kinds of salaries they do now. I think it's time the fans actually smartened up and took a stand. We ***** and complain all the time about how they are all over paid, yet we still line thier pocket books and wallets with our hard earned cash. What the hell? It really is true..we can control the way this league is run, and we should make this absolutely clear, if at all possible. This labour dispute is just pissing me off.
