I do not understand nor agree with the "Players should just shut up, bend over, take whatever Bettman gives them, and be gratefull for any paycheck" attitude. That type of thinking went out in the 20's. Now, I fully understand that these clowns are ALL overpaid. However, I vehemently disagree with the thinking that the players should bend over and take it up their collective arse just so that we can watch our hockey.
The other thing that is truly mind boggling is Bettman's mentality. How on God's green Earth can one come to the conclusion that in an era of little revenue, failing fan support, a stagnant on-ice produce and miniscule ratings that the best thing for hockey is to completely miss a season? Where is the logic behind this? OF ALL the possible solutions, Bettman could not have picked a more catastrophic one.
Anyone remember the musical "Oliver"? I just have a picture of Bettman singing "Got to cancel a seaon or two".
