Our glorious and benevolent leader has commented on the lockout. He figures this could go 2 years. Many people think he's a guy who can extend an olive branch to both sides, yet he stays out of it. Frankly, I don't blame him. story: CBC I'm not calling both sides stupid.... ok I am... but if it lasts two years, all the caps, revenue sharing, endorsement deals that they're trying to divide up (in an unequal fashion) will be largely irrelevant. Sticking your chin up in the air or your head in the sand is not the best way to handle this. When regular fans IN CANADA continue to say they are surprised by how little they miss hockey alarm bells should go off. Right now the players remind me of Latrell Sprewell commenting that the contract offer he received of $30 million over three years was insulting. He did say he has a family to feed, so I guess he's justified. If he isn't the poster child for what's wrong with pro sports nobody is. Chokes his coach and still gets to play in the NBA?
