Good for you Arachnid but this boycott business is a colossal fail.
NHL TV ratings 2013: NBC Sports Network sets all-time ratings record for Bruins vs. Rangers
Record numbers at NHL rinks and in ratings following lockout
NHL returns to strong TV ratings
They Shoot, They Score: NHL Ratings, Secondary Prices Show Fans Not Deterred by Lockout
Ratings win for NHL: 2013 openers give NBC record regular-season numbers
its about inner peace and whats right for spidey.. there is no "wrong" here *touches thumb and forefinger while humming hmmmmmmmmm*
My boycott is not so much about the whiny millionaires and the bitchy billionaires fighting over the last remnants of road kill (us, the fans). More about the state of the game, the bullshit, biases and unfairness of it all. I always looked at the guys before that said the game was better before expansion and before this and before that and I thought 'I'll never be one of those dudes that leave and lose their love of the NHL' well geuss what...I'm getting there, maybe I'm going the way of BD and the DoDo bird but I just can't be bothered...it's a sign of the times I guess...instead of all the posturing and arguing and locking out why not work what is important...the substance of the game, make IT better not all the bullshit around it...all to please the American audience...and shareholders and stupid Laugh fanz...remember glowing pucks?
I'll always be a Canuck fan and I might get back into it, I've been a fanatic since I was 6 and my old man took me to my first game at Pacific Colosseum, great memories and stories , in Vancouver and funny enough on the road with the team and continues here in T.O.
I don't think it will change, if it's not Buttman, it'll be someone else from the corporate world who will continue to ruin it...would a Cup change my views? Maybe, who knows, that's why I am willing to 'boycott this season, really, what's the point to it? The post season is the best part of hockey anyways right?! I didn't miss the Fall hockey so much, I missed the anticipation of the Fall hockey...
Think of me as a veteran fan who is deeply hurt and needs to recover but will come back in full force when it matters...
I"M THE FUCKING MATTS SUNDIN OF FANDOM GAWD DANG IT!
