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.
Very well said.
I get where Shady is coming from but i like the idea of thinking of creative ways through social media of getting the players and leagues attention. Why not cut out the middle man(the media) and start a social media blitz directed right at the players and league themselves. The media would just latch on to it as it plays out.

I can do just as much sitting at this very keyboard, if not more, than protesting 1 day in front of an arena hoping, someone notices.

I just thought of an example. Starting a site where any and everyone can send in pictures holding up messages of how this lockout affects them(much like the occupywallstreet site). Be it a shop/store owner to arena staff to even us. Start it up, get it trending on twitter. Watch the articles and media follow suit.
