It doesn't matter what side of the fence any of us are on. Neither side actually cares about the fans. It would be nice to see teams with empty arenas once they open. It would be nice to see TV ratings so low that NBC uses their out clause. The only way either side is going to get the hint that the fans matter is by losing them. Otherwise we will see ourselves back here in another 5-10 years.

Well said ap3lovr. I for one don't think either side thinks the fans are anything but Lemmings with wallets, just waiting to be led into the nearest NHL arena when they are done with thier **** measuring contest. I'm sure for many fans thatís going to be the case but in regards to some of us recently converted they are making a huge error in judgment.
