TSN has cut to talking about is also. Rishaug, Dreger, Labrun, and Ward are discussing the recent events from Manhattan with comments from Eric Macramalla in the middle of other programming (gold medal replay).

Easy...in 10 years, both Bettman and Fehr will have long since retired.

Usually they have GMs as a buffer.

It just seems like there has been more animosity than ever before.

I am technically on call 24/7, hence why I am at work right at this moment.

I used to do that, but I always end up spoiling it for myself before I get home.

When I started here last year, I was working until 9 pm, then 7 pm, then finally 6 pm, and I was thrilled because I told myself I'd finally get to watch all the games...Then the lockout happened, and finally now it looks like it'll end and I get moved to finishing at 8 pm...LOL no luck, though it is a good opportunity so I'm glad from a career point of view.

People work effectively for bosses they dislike every day.

Maybe the Jeremy Jacobses and Ron Hainseys will hold grudges for a while, but I'm not sure how much Joe Owner and Joe Player are really involved or invested in the process.

It's funny how this thread goes from 1300 to 1600 in several minutes since the NFL game is boring.

I used to hate the idea of DVRing live sports, but it really wasn't bad. As long as I didn't know what happened, it felt the exact same. You can also watch a full game in like 1.5 hours. Though I can tell you it really sucks staying up from 1-2:30 AM to watch your team get routed.

This is the least interesting of the Wild Card games...I'm excited about the other 3 games though.

There is the Crazy Horse, and OConnor's at the Centrum, throw in a few others, like a Local Hero's in Stittsville, the Glen, the bars AT the arena (Bert's, Frank Finnigans) and also the many many many bars downtown which get way bigger crowds for hockey games.

Ottawa may not be as boring as most think.

Me too, especially Skins-Seahawks and Colts-Ravens.

Alot of news outlets are coming out saying a deal could be reached today but at this pace and all the speculation who even knows.
