Anyone Else Feel Sorry for the Media?

When there was some signs of progress in the CBA talks, the media went crazy and started spouting nonsense that a deal would be signed in a day or two, and the season was going to start before Christmas. They are so desperate to see hockey, they just jump the gun with pipe dreams.

I still see they're having NHL shows on the radio daily with nothing to talk about. They even waste times "Ranking Teams" which is the biggest waste of time possible. Once a new CBA deal is signed, there will be tons of movement and many teams won't look the same.

Frankly, it looks kind of sad and pathetic.

Feel sorry for other fans maybe... But I have little respect for the media as a whole.

Boston isn't responsible for the Lockout... every team is.

Media are vultures. their job is to generate hype because it gets more viewers. Worked for me. I must have watched TSN for nearly 2 hours due to all the riveting coverage.

Do I feel sorry for the media? Nyet! They still have jobs, they're still getting a paycheck. Well, I suppose there may be members of the media that have had their hours cut....but I'm pretty sure those yokels on the Team 1040 in Vancouver are all still there...

And since I live in good ol' Denver CO, home of the Nuggets, Rockies and some football team, hockey talk is pretty nonexistent (unless it's about DU).

And as for the only other media source I have access too, *cough* ESPN *cough*, I'm guessing not too many jobs were lost due to this lockout. Actually, I'm really not sure they even know there is an NHL lockout...or even that there is something called the NHL.

Who gives a crap about the media? I don't feel sorry for anyone except the everyday working guy who was trying to feed his family. The beer guy, bar owners or worker, those are the people that are getting the shaft.

American media being what they are is a reason why the NHL isn't in any hurry to save the season before January.

Cause until then, you got football season going, and who cares about Hockey?

I do because the guys I like, McKenzie and Friedman especially, seem so disgusted with it all. You can tell none of them want to report every little breath of possible news but they have no choice.

Absolutely not. They'll move on to then next thing they can exploit for click generating to drive up ad revenues.

Seeing RDS presenting ball hockey and commenting an NHL13 season simulation makes me feel sorry for them.

How can anyone actually feel sorry for them?

These guys get paid good money rain or shine for talking out of their butts, sounds like a great gig whether the NHL ever comes back or not.

No, I don't. However, Chris Cuthbert lost his job during the last lockout at CBC. Chalk that up to another one of CBC's incompetent moves. Cuthbert being the great announcer he is was picked up by TSN. For those that think CBC would fire Don Cherry don't kid yourselves. For starters he would have Sportsnet and TSN standing at his doorstep before the ink was even dry on his pink slip. But that's another story.

Who I really feel sorry for is not only us the fans, but the people, the common people, who make a living with hockey. The restaurant owner who depends on hockey nights to serve more and more wings and beer. You think they haven't lost money? Or the zamboni driver, or the guy behind the concession stands, or the ushers or hot dog vendors. These guys depend on hockey to make a living. Maybe it is their second job, but maybe they NEED a second job to make ends meet.

So personally I feel sorry for them because there are multiple people who have lost their home because of this lockout, and I can assure you it isn't either one of Fehr, Bettman, Crosby, Alfredsson, Richards, Jacobs, Daly, Miller, etc.

Not the media personalities we see or hear from, but yes for the behind the scenes workers.
