Fans think they have some say in this process - they don't. It's a battle between the owners and the players.
If the fans wish to come back whenever hockey starts up again, that's their personal choice - but the fan has no rights, nor do they have any obligations.
I am not taking it personally. I am just pointing out that most of the 3B these two groups are fighting over comes from the fans. The fans have no say over the collective bargaining, but they do have the choice as to whether they want to continue to support these people with their money. My hope is that a 20% drop in ticket sales, like after the last MLB strike, will drive home the point that these groups shouldn't take the fans for granted anymore. It may be the only thing that will stop another lockout/strike after the next CBA expires.
