NBA four days/NHL four years!

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

I know most of you already know about it. But how pathetic is the NHL right now. It takes the NBA about four days to hash out a deal, and will probably take the NHL four years to figure out that they have two boneheads that can't hash out a deal. What a disgrace!

Hoe pathetic for anyone to compare the problems of the NHL to the NBA.

The NBA already had;

1. Salary CAP, it was Raised. Players win
2. Luxury Tax
3. Revenue Sharing
4. MUCH MUCH Higher League Revenues
5. A HUGE F'ing TV Contract
6. They have 1/2 as many players than the NHL

The NHL had;

1. NOTHING.


How many teams in the NHL MADE Money? 4-6

How many Teams in the NBA lost money? 2-3

The NHL completely started from scratch in rewriting the book. Which the NHLPA refused to do. I took the owners sticking to their word and telling Bob Goodenhow and the NHLPA to stick it. Now look who is going to win this CBA war. It certainly is not the players.



To compare these 2 CBA situation to each other is stupid!!!

To pretty much sum up what Travelin Man said. The NHL lost it's last CBA badly and this lockout was the conasequence and the NBA won it's last CBA battle so this was it's reward

So I guess, i'm pathetic and stupid

Why not compare them. They're both billion dollar sports organizations. I don't really need to know all the facts that you're a genius on. Other than the fact that these guys are paid millions of dollars to play a game. How rough!
But since you have it nailed, i'll chime in. Bottom line is that TV drives sports, and since TV couldn't give a toss about the NHL, what do the players and the union have to stand on? Pride? That's really gone far! It's a fan driven sport and it will always be. So if your point is that NBA players won, great. NHL players are losing and continue to lose more and more. But even with them losing, do you actually think they'll struggle.
Next time I start a thread, i'll make sure you proof read it before I send.....Thanks Einstein.
