Hey Scott, you want to please the fans...how about this...and, well, it's kind of simple...DON'T KILL THE SPORT!!!! I'm sick of hearing "this is getting bad, we're doing harm to the sport"....oh yeah? then stop doing harm to the sport, you oaf.
There are three things that don't make sense to me about the players' rhetoric...
1) "Maybe 6 teams need to be contracted" It blows my mind that a union would be willing to kill 20% of their jobs rather than have a slight limit to how much they can make for the overall good of the game.
2) "We're doing this for the next generation of players" if this continues, their stubbornness could potentially cause the loss of at least 33% of their jobs as well as the loss of a good percentage of the fan base and tv revenue. How does that help the next generation of players?
3) "we're going to have to do a lot when we come back to win back the fans". Want to win back the fans scott? negotiate a cap with the league, come back to nashville and start practicing. You'll be a hero beyond your wildest imagination. Trying a cap for a few years would bring the fans to your side, and if it really doesn't work and you have to go on strike, or whatever, maybe you'll have the support that could get you what you want. But, if you kill the sport, there will be no fans to win back, because there will be nothing to come back to...
Tell it brother. Wish we could line up Scott Walker to have a bargaining session with the HF board members.....I would love to attend that!!!
