Time For us to be heard!

I would like to take a moment to share an idea. We all are aware of the pending lockout. The media is trying to create a battle among two men. As good as the media is they have forgotten the one voice that really matters. OURS. I am currently working on letters which will be sent to all media declaring my and hopefully that of many others opinion. I am declaring that I a hockey fan are going to strike. I will not support the owners or the players. The bottom line is if we the fans do not spend anyone money in regards to the NHL, both the player and the owner will lose. I will not watch hockey on TV, I will Not attend a game or buy any merchandise. I think that tickets at 150 dollars a piece is ridiculous and 9 buck a beers is absurd. But as long as we keep paying it the money will be there to pay. the lowest paid full time nhler makes more than the President of the United States, he makes more than any doctor at CHEO. There was more money spent last year on the New York Rangers than there was on finding a cure for cancer...

its time we made a stand..

Lets be Heard...

I Steven Dontigny will not spend any money until 2006 on anything NHL related...

who is with me.

p.s how do we make this thing a stickie.

Sorry, I'm addicted. If there's hockey, I'm going to it, I'm watching it, I'm buying crap. I'm weak, sue me.

If the NHL really cared about what we think, the CBA would have been done 5 years ago.

However well-intended it may be a dozen people or so on a free message board holding out for lower beer and apparel prices isn't going to exactly get the nhl or the pa shaking at it knees. Who the hell really cares what the players make anyway? It's sports. It's entertainment. It's the same as actors and rock stars. They're all overpaid in the scheme of things but that's just the way things are and always will be. People can't live without entertainment.

but once you get a petition started or a website going it will not be just 12 fans on a message board, every fan in the world that is true to hockey and likes the nhl will want to sign it. They have ignored us for too long.
