Now I am no lawyer. I leave the lawyerin' to the lawyers. But the way I see it is these two parties need each other, and when 2 people need each other they have to give a little and take a little. In short I think both have been taking it for a long time...from me and you. And right now they are just trying to figure out a way to get more of it from me and you. An I think those two parties need you an me even more than they need each other. So when you start discussin' the the business of hockey...make no illusions about what this is all about. It's about taking you an me to the cleaners everytime we want to see a simple hockey game. Hockey players want to keep their multi-million dollar properties in Muskoka, Owners want to sell one more sponsorship deal to coke or pepsi and keep corporate ezecutives at the bar. Heck I just want to see a half-decent period of hockey on a Saturday night. Maybe a goal or two, a breakaway once in a while, a couple of fellers going at it toe to toe when they come to disagree, and God willin', I just want to see the buds raise the cup once more before I die, and if that costs me a weeks paycheck on any given week then Mr's Bet-man and Goodenough I offer you this simple solution...........get the *&^6#$ back to work like the rest of us saps.
