    N.H.L. Season Done!

    (Oops! Just realized that the sports forum is under play ball? moving....)


    As I'm sure you all have heard (or don't care) Gary Bettman will formally and mercifully announce the season's cancellation tomorrow in New York. So this is what it's come to eh players?

    1) Refusing to play under a 40 million dollar cap but gladly going overseas to play for teams with a cap of under a million dollars.

    2) Stealing permanent jobs from players while you're play will only be temporary.

    3) Screaming bloody murder over the use of replacement players. Although having said that I think it'll be fun to watch Jeff Carter, Patrick Eaves, Sidney Crosby and start anew.

    4) Incredible selfishness. Biting the hand that feeds. While two-thirds of the league has lost nearly 2 billion dollars (in Toronto they blindly traipse down to watch mediocre hockey while paying inflated ticket prices) over the past decade you guys continued to be paid and treated like Kings. Give something back? Please. You make it out like you're fighting for such a noble cause, but you're not fooling anyone with your petty greed and complaints. Meanwhile honest hard-working americans and cdns whose businnesses depend on your game are left out in the cold.

    Having said that, a recent poll shows 40% of Canadians do not miss the game and a vast majority of Americans have no interest in the game regardless.

    Oh well I hope you clowns don't mind playing in empty arenas when this thing is resolved.

    Good post. Maybe some day professional athletes will realise that the sports leagues they play in weren't meant to provide them with infinite wealth...

    The funny part is that they were already playing in half filled arena's, so the transition should be quite smooth.
