I'm leaning toward the position of never going again no matter who is playing. A pox on both their houses.

If I wanted to watch a sub-NHL level game I'd drive to Orlando or Estero, honestly.

I'll never go to a game that has replacement players.

Yes, I just like watching hockey.

I probably wouldn't be nearly as big of a fan of the team though.

This. Is it our AHL'ers with NHL players who crossed picket lines or is it players who have no business being in anything about the ECHL?

I left the question purposely vague.

Replacement players, generally.

Sure. Would probably still be better than USF club games, or Tampa Bay Juniors games.

And even if it's not as good as the ECHL at least I wouldn't have to drive to Orlando or Estero to watch hockey.

Though it would depend on prices for how many games I went to though. Obviously wouldn't pay normal prices.

The Syracuse Crunch in a Lightning jersey? Sure.

Anything below? Probably not.

Is this poll a result of the Spurs not playing starters?

You say the question is purposely vague, but...

Every trade that is made could be considered replacement players. Players are replaced all the time. So yes, I would.

If you meant more like the Spurs situation... I would not be happy paying to watch my favorite big name rock band play, only to find out that I was actually seeing some ****** cover band.

That said, I think coaches should have the right to play, or rest, any player they want. I do not think the league should have gotten involved

Great, now I gotta go find out what the Spurs did.

You found an old lockout thread man. Not an issue anymore.

Basically, the San Antonio Spurs coach chose to let his starters stay home and rest, rather then traveling with the team to a road/away game.

The NBA said that it was unacceptable to not play the team's best players(the players the fans are paying to watch); the Spurs were fined

(I am not sure if I explained very well what happened)

I was just wondering if that is what prompted the thread.
