Hockey lockout a protracted fight for our money
Editor: The NHL and the Players’ Association are fighting over the monies we give them because of our love for hockey. The TV and radio stations continue to talk about this issue, because they benefit financially from NHL hockey.
In the end, should they come back, and they will, it will be you and I who will continue to pay them the big salaries they make, including the monies made by TV and radio.
To us it is a hockey game. To the NHL and the Players’ Association, it is a game to take more of our money. That is the real issue.
It is not about how much money any one player is making. It is about where the money they are making comes from.
Both sides are fighting over our money. I say tell them both to stick it. I have nothing more to say about this, and I hope you won’t either.
They will miss us when we leave more than we will miss them. Trust me.
