Commentary: NHL fans played for fools
Quote:
While NFL players and management were on their most recent collision course, the networks agreed to TV contracts that would have paid the league even in the event of a lockout. That would have allowed the NFL to create a war chest, giving it little incentive to negotiate. (A judge ultimately denied the NFL access to those funds, a major victory for the players union.
Found it interesting that the TV contract deal was the same in that it was to be paid even in the event of a lockout.

With a judge denying the access to the funds. I guess that would set a precedent for the NHL situation.
