I'm talking about if they lose parts of two consecutive seasons, they could lose a sufficient number of fans and advertisers to seriously jeopardize the league in non-Canadian markets. It's hard to over-estimate the resentment and even total indifference a lot of fans would feel at that point. It would basically amount to a zero respect for the fans move. Fans would go from "you're greedy" to "F me? FU!" IOW they would take it personally at that point, IMO. And they should because it is without question about respect at that point. Now you can argue oh it's just business and it will take a while... but by that time, that argument goes out the window and it becomes "these people don't give two ***** about us and they still think we're coming back! **** them!"
