Burton got suckered. I feel bad for the guy. You know Jacobs gave him that info, and he ran with it.

I have never seen a leader as moronic as Bettman and as stupid as the players. YOUR KILLING YOUR LIVELY HOOD PLAYERS and YOUR KILLING YOUR BUSINESS OWNERS. Very Dumb

Bettman & Daly now racing back to hotel to address the media themselves.

Will they hold up one or both middle fingers?

I still believe that Fehr is the only guy, or type of guy, that would be able to get the PA the fairest and most reasonable deal. PA needed someone who wouldn't back down and would be able to hold his own against Bettman.

lol this whole league is a bigger frigging Mickey Mouse operation than the Devils ever were.

Watch, this proposal contained de-linkage AGAIN or even the lack of a cap, I wouldn't put that past Don

It's like a chess game.
Except I don't want to watch chess. I want to watch hockey.
This isn't chess, this is politics. And a bad form of politics at that. This is why I don't pay attention to politics at all.

Haha it's exactly like politics. This crew is like the crew we got in Washington. I almost think Obama, and Boehner can get something better than Bettman, and Fehr.

Seriously guys I know this is funny, but watch NASCAR! No union BS, no strikes, or work stoppages! And only a 3 month off season!

If this were politics, we'd actually have some sort of say in the matter.

We're still just dopey spectators here.

We do have a say, just not in the way we want...boycotting is the only voice we have in hockey. Then again we don't have much of a say in politics either, with a two-party system and voting once a year.

But yeah I was thinking of the budget fight mostly when I made the politics crack. I honestly don't know what gets done first, probably the budget since it's, you know, actually essential to operating the government but it'll be close

About how I feel right now.

Did the commissioner of a professional sports league just say that the **** hit the fan with full grown adult owners of professional sports teams.... because players didn't bow down and act grateful enough to something they put on the table?

Who are these people? And do they need a hug or something?

Funny thing is, players have been making the concessions to the owners to get this deal done.

Players wanted 5 years, NHL wanted 10. Players agreed at 8.

Players aren't going to agree to 5 years, so it's time for the NHL to make it more reasonable. They are making it out to be something of substantial importance to signal the the players they aren't budging so the players will give in. Owners are seeing the players giving in to other things, and see them in a weak state, so they hope to take advantage of their desperateness and make them accept 5 year contract maximums.

players standing in the back of the room at Gary's presser

https://twitter.com/jessespector/sta...56186484178944




reporter just asked Gary "how can a commissioner justify cancelling two full seasons in eight years?"

Gary "blah blah nba, mlb, and nfl have lockouts too!, this is the hand i am dealt" and he is tormented by it apparently.

Aside from the reason this lockout started in the first place, you know what makes this lockout even stupider than the last two? The fact that they've been talking for months now. Not constantly, but there's been a lot of talks. In 04 we're just having the first meetings right now I think, and nothing has happened since the expiration of the CBA. Which was mid September, the same as this year.

There has been a lot of PR ******** during this lockout, and it's a bigger joke than last time for that alone. Forget the reasons it even started in the first place.

They had 7 ****ing years to negotiate

Why should we be surprised they started negotiations just 2 months before it was set to expire?

Everything this league does is a joke

I hope when this circus eventually does come back to playing, everything suffers from attendance to league revenue

I'm done following the circus. I'll be back day one to watch HOCKEY, but I'm not following the POLITICS anymore.
