Do you know where that loan money comes from? It comes from the taxpayers who reside in those cities. Try to tell those people earning $40,000 a year that the hockey player making millions needs more cash to 'feed his family' and see if they don't laugh right in your face.

Poor, starving hockey players...
He didn't say that the team doesn't incur any expenses during a lockout, he said the expenses are significantly REDUCED.
