I miss my hockey season. I don't follow any sports except hockey. I'm not the freakish, stop everything it's Monday night football, bet on fantasy league, stat memorizer type. Just someone who enjoys watching the sport. Former player Phil Esposito had it right in this article. I think there isn't the market that the players feel there is for astronomical salaries.
My friend Joe has an opinion on the subject that led me to write this posting. There is also a vague reference in his post to someone who could be construed as me. Wow, that's pathetically shallow. That's also a good reason to reciprocate his veiled reference. A shameless, selfserving attempt to have myself vaguely referred to (that's shallow AND depressing). Actually I agree that this lockout could hurt the league irrepairably. However I don't believe that the owners should end the lockout, I think the players should accept a salary cap. There is just not a large enough fan base to support unlimited earnings.
