The biggest farce is that nobody really knows what's going on so they're all speculating now...some are being doomsayers, some are being optomists. This is like the hours before the Kovalchuk arb ruling all over again. Wouldn't be surprised if most of them are being fed disinformation to keep everyone guessing at this point.
If you honestly feel that way then, A) why are you still on a Devils message board checking the lockout thread? and B) I hope the people who want to boycott/are apathetic stay away from the board if the season does get saved so people who want to celebrate can
A) To stay informed.
I understand what's going on with the sparring factions of the pro-Morsi and anti-Morsi entities in Egypt as well, though I'm only tangentially interested in that as well.
B) I hope I get a pony someday.
Well, a few horses really. I'd like a pinto, and I think it would be cool to buy a Chincoteague Pony (which is really a horse).
