To the extent the owners care about media / public opinion is only in terms of bargaining pressure on the players and players wives / families (i.e., so those that are impacted but not directly involved put pressure on the union leaders and player reps based on media reports). Whether that works for the owners is dubious.
Yeah, you know there is no way we could not watch when it comes back on. Then if we say something like, "Oh, Okposo is looking better this year" and another poster says, "What are you talking about he's been awful. How many games have you watched" and you have to say, "Oh, none I'm taking the pledge"...bam...goodbye. Everyone here will be watching....
