Tweet emotion unleashed

Opinions fly across the Twitterverse

The Twitterverse launched into a frenzy Friday when columnist Gary Lawless invited readers to unload on the NHL and NHL Players' Association over the lockout, now into Day 22.

Of course, Twitter never sleeps, so if you wish to weigh in, please use the hashtag #wfplockout or send your tweets to @garylawless.

 

I plan on following the IceCaps and watching pvr'd Jets games. Unlikely there will be agreement between PA and NHL.

Jeremy Leroux @Jrux85

 

I'm sure its been said, the #nhlpa union doesn't seem very unified when 100+ members are taking jobs overseas!

Jason Wiebe @jay_weebah

 

I'm discouraged because I have Winter Classic tix. But a deal that benefits Wpg long-term doesn't come easy.

Dan Heaford @dhfromkw

 

Give owners larger slice of revenue pie but put some in escrow for office/event staff that suffer every lockout

Jay Boaz @JBo_8

 

NHL wants players to pay for costly expansion into non-hockey markets. Answers are rev sharing, relocation, and/or compaction.

Terry Lowdon @tlowdon2

 

True North should donate every cancelled game ice time to minor hockey, so the kids they are disappointing can enjoy it

Dan Rochon @_danielrochon

 

Fan groups need seat at table. Not just for CBA negotiation but for ongoing connection to each team for a variety of concerns.

Banker by Day @banker_by_day

 

Would love to see NHL players give up guaranteed contracts..don't think they understand how great thy have it

Christophe Rodrigue @Christophe9999

 

Manitobans who can't access tickets are snickering and saying, "Well if I can't go to Jets games, nobody can!!"

Dan Heaford @dhfromkw

 

Taking jobs overseas bothers me, if Canada Post locked out mail carriers they would go start delivering for UPS???

Dave Schulz @DaveTheRegular

 

Last lockout I was angry & wanted it done, now I care less every day. Screw both sides. I'll support minor league hockey

FB @Flyer_Bully

 

The NHL should be looking to use Scabs. I'd rather watch some hockey than no hockey.

Matthew Dahl @wpgmbd

 

Would the players be better off with no PA? Owners have more $$ than brains.
