We fans cheer for strangers, get emotional about a corporate logo, and give them our money for the privilege to do both. It's kind of ridiculous when you think about it.

But, it's the owners league, and the players careers, so they each gotta do what they gotta do. If they're both willing to go this far(half a season at best), potentially further(another full year), and possibly to some insane level of stubbornness(maybe January 2014, or later), then they'll certainly have worked hard for, and deserve, everything they don't get.
