The steady increase in revenue with the widening gap in have's .vs. have nots, on top of the player being greedy frigin ********, on top of the large market teams exploiting their revenue streams..... I can go on and on.
I'll be honest, I'm getting to the point I've got bigger things to worry about in my life without listening to these jack holes squabbling. My heart bleeds for none of them. Owners fighting owners, players fighting owners. Meanwhile every last one of them has a pretty good lifestyle. Me? I'm just trying to figure out retirement while perhaps helping a future blahblah junior go to college.
Screw every last one of the player and owners. I love hockey, but the rest of them? The only thing that makes me not turn away from it is my love for the game on top of the players that make a difference in the community. Why should I care about these jackholes, when the best times this fanbase will have is if we build a consistent playoff contender with a once a decade realistic chance (if we are lucky) at a Cup run. Where the best you can hope for is maybe to model ourselves after the Preds.
Exactly my thoughts. Thanks for expressing them so well. I was beginning to wonder if mine were "Irrational" due to lack of sleep from editing a good portion of the night, and spending my limited time to promote this sport, these players, and the owner.
yeah I feel like a total schmuck for doing it.
