No sport really gives a **** about the customer. Baseball, football, basketball, I can name a ton of examples from every sport about how they screw the fan. It's just that other sports are smarter and have more causal fans/TV money/etc to lose by completely shutting down than hockey. When baseball shut down in '94, they got so much backlash in '95 they've had labor peace for the next eighteen years after having 'no' labor peace before then.
