I'm not naive enough to think this will change things, but at least it would place some media attention on the fans. This lockout is about us as fans as well. Both the players and the owners are showing their lack of respect for us through this process. So why not show our lack of respect for them?
What does protesting for one day accomplish? You get one day of media (considering the MLB playoffs are underway, NFL& college football is in their season, and NBA camps have opened that's a maybe) and then what? Don't you think if either side realized that the fans should have a say it wouldn't have gotten to this point?
I know you're upset and you feel like you should do something, but the only way to get both sides to be afraid of losing games isn't thinking one day or one season, you have to think about long term consequences.
