That's too bad. Now a bunch of people will be supporting them again paying $4.50 for .02 worth of popcorn, and $8.50 for .10 worth of beer. Heck, the cup costs as much as the beer does.
Oh well, they no longer exist in my mind. I'll keep my money and invest in something much more entertaining, like watching paint dry.
Well, I'm happy for all the little guys that have been affected by the lockout -- the support staff and arena/concession workers. They were the ones most affected by the strike. Not the millionaires and billionaires.
Fans in each city's home opener should give a five-minute, loud boo just before the puck drops. Give the players, and to a lesser extent the league, a delay of game to show your true feelings about what went on for the last number of months.
You guys/gals can whine all you like, come back, don't come back... let's move on. Is Scheifele ready to play with the big boys? Can't wait to see Buff lay someone out. This is going to be great.
I am kind of numb by all that has gone on. No doubt both sides have a lot of kissing up they have to do to the fans. This has been a long winter without the Jets playing, so I welcome them back.
My enthusiasm has been muted badly.
I'm sorry, but the only one losing by your boycott of the NHL is you. The league will go on with you or without you. New fans will come and take your place just as quickly as you can leave. Pretending that me ignoring the NHL will heal the frustration of the lockout is simply ridiculous and illogical. If it gives you comfort so be it, but I love hockey and I'd only be hurting myself by ignoring the NHL.
