These are NFL players. The cops were probably there to protect the public from the players, rather than the other way around.

Yes because I am more likely to by the victim of a drive-by shooting by Manning than someone traveling in from Compton.

It was the Cardinals being escorted to the jail for impersonating a football team.

That was just too easy though. C for effort, A for execution.

I might be wrong, but I think it's the visiting team. I think the home players just show up.

Nevermind. Found it. Sportsman's. I'm about to get me a snobby sandwich and way too much overpriced wine on a Sunday afternoon.

Gotta love how clueless these relocationists are.

"Move teams like the Coyotes because I'm sick of seeing teams like Toronto giving revenue sharing money to teams that can't never make it on their own."
"I fully support the NHLPA and Donald Fehr over whatever Gary Bettman does."

Donald Fehr and the NHLPA want to see revenue sharing increased to $25 Million.

Most of the CBA-rage I've encountered on blogs and comment sections and so on has been weird like that. The response leads me to imagine a crowd of angry tweens being told that the Justin Bieber concert has been postponed. And the parents are angry too, because now they have to explain to their kids what "rehab" means, and why their favorite singer has to go there.

They can just go get bent. At least they can say that when all is said and done, they know where their team will be playing the year after next.

On a semi-related tangent: if anyone hasn't been to DeFalco's Italian Deli and Grocery in Scottsdale I highly recommend checking it out. Family run in the valley for several decades, all kinds of great Italian food.

With a lockout all but certain Im curius if anyone has called yet to ask about how a refund for lost games will work for season ticket holders. My tickets are pretty much all paid off for this season.

Gary Bettman and company will laugh their way to the bank as they announce there will be no refunds.

You'll get an option to apply those dollars to Next Season's account or for this year's playoffs.

I doubt whether any other option exists.

Reading through the options the Suns gave, refunds for games missed were given but it was a pain to get. Could expect something similar.

Speaking of all that rage, I'm sick and tired of all the rage being used to talk about boycotting and protesting the NHL over something that has yet to happen this season, a lockout. The General Section is more annoying than ever before with this kind of crap talk seeing that so many have not botherned to learn from history that this kind of talk was used during the last lockout and the league came back stronger than it ever was before.

Really shouldn't come as a surprise negotiations are going to come down to the wire. That's just the normal course of negotiations when both sides come under the most pressure to offer concessions and get a deal done.

From the NHLPA:

Setting the Record Straight: CBA Myths vs. Facts

Quote:
After seven straight seasons of record revenue, it’s clear that if the NHL has a problem, it is not a revenue issue, but rather a revenue disparity issue. The owners’ revenue sharing proposal does increase revenue sharing somewhat, but every dollar of revenue sharing is paid for by player salary reductions; the higher income clubs contribute nothing on their own.

The Players’ propose that they partner with the high-income teams to provide targeted funding for the distressed teams and owners. But the players won’t and shouldn’t have to do this alone. The higher income teams need to share far more with the lower revenue teams. The Players will do their part; will the owners?

I was with the owners during the last CBA fail, this time around though I'm starting to side with the NHLPA. Something needs to be done about the top 5-8 clubs and their "let them eat cake" attitude.

I agree with this, too. They really need to focus on total league health. Severely restrict player contracts, cap growth, and revenue hoarding.

Those clubs are responsible both for generating the bulk of the league's revenue, and for inflating the cost of labor. It's like they're trying to drive the other clubs, ostensibly their partners, out of business. It would be funny if it wasn't so stupid. No wonder finding new investors is so hard.

September 13th BOG Vote

Quote:
According to governors, who spoke anonymously with CSNPhilly.com, Bettman will outline where both sides are in the collective bargaining process.

He will then ask them – via a vote – whether they are supportive of his strategy to lock the players out on Sept. 15 if there is no agreement on a new, long-term – not short-term – CBA.
