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.
Well, they had their say in 2006 when they came back. Now it is assumed we will do the same. It is a shame, I think the NHLPA in particular is really taking that for granted.
I agree though, I rally hope there is a drop in ticket sales and revenue. A considerable drop is the only way to assure this will never happen again.
