i picked players because i think that the players are the only ones that are making an effort to get hockey back, they keep makign offers that anyone could not refuse, obviously bettman isnt anyone, and all in all i feel that the NHL just doesnt want back hockey as much as the PA does
I think the owners .. they are the ones taking the risks ... putting up the investment ... the players are overpaid employees ... why should a business owner lose money because the employees make outrageous demands ?? Its gone on too long ... the owners are finally fed up.
nobody supports the fans, not even the fans themselves. Zero respect.
How about another category....."neither"
I DON'T support the players because I cannot get behind their "philosophical" refusal for a cap. Its IGNORANT to say the least. At the same time I cannot support the owners because they REFUSE to address the primary PROBLEM here and that is lack of revenue SHARING. Until they're willing to cooperate & help each other I cannot get behind them either.
Both sides can go fuck themselves for all I'm concerned at this point.
Sometimes all you get are 2 options, Clam. Neither side really cares about the fans, and as time passes the morons in charge will finally figure out that the fans could careless about either side.
I voted for the owners, and I look forward to the union being broken this fall.
The last offer by the NHL was the best "open the door" offer yet. Obviously it was loaded towards the owners, however it did make an opening for a counter offer from the NHLPA.
On the bright side I will be saving $25 bucks a month on my cable bill.
The truth may hurt...but it is still the Truth...Have a nice day
I think that MLB players should donate half of the total salaries made in a season to the owners so that they dont have to worry about losing money for oh say the next 15 years, its absolutley ridiculous that a sport liek baseball doesn have a salary cap, i guess thats what happens when you have a luxury tax....
I would have voted owners based on the fact the players already make too much but based on the latest developments....the fact the players made ALL the concesions (rollback, cap etc) I'm voting players. The owners will NOT share revenue thus proving they aren't about the good of the game whatsoever & truely only own teams for status & profit......pure GREED. The players aren't angels by any means but they do love the game & their willingness to negotiate proves that.
Consider me no longer on the fence....although its still the fans who get screwed by both sides in the end.
