Perhaps the players would realize then, why they play this game in the first place; and the owners would realize they need the fans and players to make this league work.
This lock out is all about greedy owners and players 'taking' ... maybe for once they should consider 'giving'.
I can't tell if you are an idealist or delusional, though often they are synonymous. I see where you come from, and it's nice to think that players play because they love the game. The fact is that the world does not work that way. If no one made any money, then what is the point?
The owners and players do give us something: entertainment.
Time and time again, supply and demand will dictate the outcome. As long as fans are willing to show up the game will go on.
