Of course, the owners deserve their half because they sit there and watch.
So you clearly have no understanding of how business works.

The bills that allow all of their employees, IE the NHLPA, to even have a job that pays them millions to begin with.

And Revenue and Profits are two completely different things.

i think the thing that this particular boycott is more geared to is boycotting businesses that are owned by NHL owners.

4. Prepare to boycott every company on the Boycott page if we are ignored (From September 15th until the first puck drops)

http://www.youhavetwoweeks.com/boycott.html

I think that's more realistic and feasible than boycotting the NHL. and mind you, it asks you to boycott from the time the lockout starts, to the time the puck drops

There are two groups threatening to create a lockout. I'm not inclined to side with either one of them.

Why are we unionizing? It isn't like the owners pay us.

I think most people understand the lack of business knowledge is strong with that one
