  •  Yeah yeah yeah. Do you think fans pay $$$$$... (5+ / 0-)

    ... to want owners own, or to watch players play?

    The players, believe it or not, have tremendously rare physical talent -- the ability to play hockey at a world-class level -- that millions of people will pay money to watch?

    What is the tremendously rare talent of the owners?

    Usually, it's winning the sperm derby.

    Oh yeah, it's also the ability to fuck taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars to build them free arenas.

      ... that NHL players aren't talented.  I just pointed to the absurdity of their pay at that world-class level, considering all the other issues we've got going on.

      Besides, have you tried attending an NHL game, lately?  In my market, at least, a lot of middle-class folks - and families - are effectively priced out of the seats.

      There be no shelter, here. The front line is everywhere.
