    I have to vent about this cuz it pisses me off.
    This unnecessary strike is Billionaires fighting with millionaires,
    over money.It blows me away that from the owners point,they won't
    lose anything from the 18,000 fans per stadium NOT paying over $100 a ticket.
    They can put their $ into mutual funds or pork bellies and do quite well.
    The players showed up en masse for the talks in New York last week.
    Almost 400 of 700 of them flew in to be part of the negotiations.
    Do they not get to vote on this?
    I think the hockey players have gotten as greedy as Gary Bettman.
    What about us dedicated fans often travelling miles to buy an overpriced
    ticket to watch the game we love.
    They should take one on the chin and agree to the league's offer.
    Sell the maserati and buy a porsche.Most people make less than
    $50k a year.Let's not let greed take away our Hockey night in Canada.

    I listen to 105.7 from Kingston, sometimes. (can't get 95.7 in Watertown) They are very upset about this. It's just baloney that they can't get this straightened out beforehand. The almighty dollar strikes, again.

    I would have no problem splitting up $3.5B---1/3 each to the owners and players and the remaining 1/3 to the league to be used in part for player development.
