What The Hell Is Going On Here???!!!
Why is it that the league and the union can not get a deal worked out? Why is it that one minute we here that they have comed to an agreement and the next minute they have nothing. What the hell is going on here?
Every since yesterday we’ve heard that the union had broke and Gretzky and Lemuiex were going to New York we were led to believe that there was going to be a deal. Espn was reporting it and so was every other qoutable news source. So optimism was high and with good reason. We all believed the the union would crack and accept any offer that was on the table. So from late last night until early this evening it was as done as putting the puck in an empty net. Then we got the formal announcement that the talks had ended with no progress. Hell Bettman and Goodenow was not even there. Not even the presense of the great one and super Mario could have saved the day. Well atleast not today anyway. So I just feel like I’ve taken as much as I’m going to take. I know I’m not alone either. Because we are the most loyal fans in all of sports they actually believe they can get away with this. Everyday there is more stories flip flopping around like it was a John Kerry speech. How can a deal not be made? How can it be easier to figure out the votes in Florida than it is to work out a new CBA? So here we are evey day awaiting our next plate of crap that they feed us. So where do we go from here?
Do we finally say enough is enough and lock the league and the players out? Do we decide that maybe going to a football or baseball game is so much better than going to a hockey game? Do we just not care anymore? Or do we just keep eating the crap until there is a new CBA annouced? I don’t know what to do. I’m just emotionally tired from being told we are going to see hockey and then poof just like that nothing. This is just like waiting to see what presents you got on Christmas only to discover you’ve been robbed over night. Thats how I feel.
So how do you feel?
