All this lockout does is make me less willing to make a financial commitment to following sports. Considering that this commitment has been tried so many times in the past decade, I care less at this point.
Even 5 years ago, upon hearing that the Isles are moving to my home borough, I'd have jumped for season tix. Now, I will buy a 5-10 game package at maximum. Of course, having two kids could have something to do with that.
Being not tech stupid, I don't have cable or satellite TV, and I know how to use a VPN. I'm not saying I'm special - I know how typical I am. My point: the NHL better learn to start responding to me. Otherwise, it's going to think that it has a bunch of Isles fans watching games from Oregon or Switzerland. If it thinks that, it's understanding of its own revenue potential is going to be way off.
If the NHL keeps insisting on keeping its options open, I will do the same. I won't pay for cable or tickets on the chance there is going to be hockey.
