I dont know if I am done yet. But I have learned to live without the NHL.
I have Rangers season tickets. I had a couple of years recently where I went to 50+ games (home and away). I have been to 16 NHL arenas.
I think the only thing keeping me going is knowing Rangers tickets have a really good resale value. I dont know if thats going to take a hit.
As individuals, players are fighting for more money in one season that many of us may take 10 years to make..or maybe even a lifetime of earnings. I am having a hard time relating to this labor dispute.
Actually I side with the NHLPA and not the NHL. Players have already conceded enough imo.
But the idea of throwing pennies even if it's in rolls is a huge sign of F you imo.
Throw plus tomatoes. Noone gets hurt, and the tomatoes can be donated as dog chew toys.
also, I just spent $140 to join a low level hockey group. You guys don't want to play hockey? i can get my fix. Now,to spend more money tricking out my new equipment(seeing as my shin pads are hilariously bulky and my hockey pants shrunk in the wash) $$$
I am watching the crap out of the EPL/Champions League and Budisliga. Even saw matches in Dortmund and Old Trafford. I was always a fan but it took a back seat to the NHL. From now on it will be the other way around. As I know soccer will always be there and hockey....who knows form one CBA to the next.
I find it funny one Fehr left the baseball scene things have moved along swimmingly there in regards to CBAs.
