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?

    we were more than robbed. we were beaten, had our hearts ripped from us, we were duped, made fun of and neglected. we had our kneecaps broken, we were embarassed. it was like getting badly injured and to add insult to injury, the ambulance ran over us on purpose. and the paramedics started to beat us up too for good measure.

    Easy, it isn’t the end of the world. If an impasse isn’t granted, then it is the end of the hockey world.

  4. RichterFan says:

    Well to us it feels like the end of the world. atleast to me it does.

  5. RichterFan says:

    I’m surprised they put my article up since I wrote it in anger. But maybe its because we all feel this way.

    I feel that Steve Nash needs to get a hair cut

  7. RichterFan says:

    Do you mean Steve Nash the NBA player or Rick Nash the NHL player?

  8. RangerSteve says:

    Steve Nash from the Suns. That dude’s the grimiest mofo I’ve ever seen. As for hockey players, you can have long hair n get away with it. I mean hell Jagr looked like a mess for all those years in Pittsburgh but he owned everybody.

    Surprisingly, my life is continuing normally without hockey.

    Would I watch a Leafs game if it was on, sure if I had nothing else to do. Would I be excited come playoff time and go to a sports bar with friends and a few beers to cheer the team on, sure.

    On the other hand, I don’t sit there on Saturday nights at 7:30 and feel a big void in my life.

    I am finding the whole drama entertaining to be honest. Watching stupid millionaire crybaby players lose a significant part of their careers, and money… that they will NEVER recover, and watching stupid, lieing, greedy owners lose all their juicy playoff revenue because they could not control their spending in the first place…

    It is all very amusing to me 🙂

    easy rangersteve…..nash is canadian…we don’t want to get them fired up anymore than they are.

  12. RichterFan says:

    you know when you put it that way. you make an excellent point. the hell with them.

  13. Destroyah says:

    Its sucks to a point ( I really miss Hockey Night in Canada), but you can only beat your head against a wall so long.

    I am very angry with they way Gretzky and Lemieux are portrayed at the meeting on Saturday. They were just being used for their name recognition, thats it. This should have been settled by now.
