Maybe not because of their effort, but it may happen anyway.

I'm very curious to see how the optics of this strike are going to play out in the real world when this is all over. Given the fragile state of the economy, and the financial pain being felt my millions of Americans, I do think this time might be different. This "looks" awful, and my perception is that people do notice.

On a personal level, I have no desire to go to games even if they work something out today and I do think attendance will suffer. Who knows, maybe it will be like last time and as soon as they return it will be record attendance again, but that's just not my sense of things if the various HFBoards boards are an indication.
