Good timing - World Jr's just whetted my appetite for more hockey. NFL just isn't doing it for me.
Rumours about sponsors complaining and pressuring Bettman half confirm what I thought would be needed to end this. However, in my case I thought it would strictly be NBC/Comcast telling them to get it done - maybe with a breach of contract threat. I am glad NBCSports moved up the dial on DirecTv to 220 in the meantime.
Two things that have been repeated probably and will be again:
Contract is way long. Eight years minimum? What happens when the teams inevitably find loopholes like they did with the last two contracts. This is why I thought the union should have just signed the first offer.
Second, Bettman has to be done now. I can't believe he didn't make any "worst CEO's" list this year but the ordeal did have to receive a comment from a sitting US President (comments from a sitting Canadian PM would just draw political hot water).

this is one of the things that have been changed in the "agreement" according to TSN.
Is the fake season over?
