So most of us assumed they'd all screw this up and lose half a season. And guess what? That's still the overwhelmingly likely scenario. However we've allowed the fake drama of the last month or so, orchestrated by those running each group, to suck us in. And now many of us are beyond exasperated.
This is blatantly our fault. It was never going to go any other way.
If the league and PA feel that fans will always come back no matter what type of labour dispute is going on, these lockouts or potentially strikes, will continue to happen. Fans need to take a stand with their wallets and make the league and players pay for all of this nonsense. Until this happens, they will continue to walk all over us.
