You have said yourself that 30 to 40 owners don't know what they are doing. Isn't that why teams don't work? It goes far beyond them paying the players too much - which is also their own fault.
But again you keep saying that these owners should lock themselves into a six to ten year deal where not only must they give away their profits if they happen to make some... But its also perfectly acceptable not to make any because only if its their fault...
For the tecord i mostly agree with how you see things... I just totally disagree with the why you see things. yes its the owners that get the taxes but why are they needed... And what happens if they get cut off... And what do us fans get for our taxes if theres no hockey
And yes sports teams are an economic benefit to a city but so are casinos... I dont support tax dollars to them either.
Its clear you dont care whether or not several owners lose money but they do care how much they lose. a solution to this issue wont be found unless the owners concerns are addressed
