I am done with hockey - they can all go f*ck themselves.. Just like baseball I am done. I will not watch, I will not go to games, I will not acknowledge its existence. I am fed up with pro sports athletes and player's unions and all the bull****. Put one of these guys in any of our jobs making the $ we make and they would cry to mamma for buttermilk.
Yeah Gasman, Unions ARE great! NOT! Hmm.. Wonder why cars costs so much? Wonder why the economy sucks because it costs 10,000,000 times as much to make or do anything here? Thank the unions. Shop rate in the United States - $55.00 per hour. Shop rate in Mexico - $0.55 per hour. Shop rate in China - $0.23 per hour. Yeah we can be competive - NOT! Oh yeah thanks to the Union for the f*cking guy sitting at Buick City making $22.50 per hour selling pop and chips in the cafeteria. Thanks to the Union for the thousands of workers making $20+ per hour that drink twice their body weight in beer at lunch and are complete slobs for most of the day. Thanks to the Union for the thousands of skilled trades that get paid double time for 8 hours that only work 1-2 hours of the shift. Unions are almost as good as the Democratic Giving My Money to Make More Crack Babies Party. Don't like my strong fact filled opinion? Tough, the truth hurts. If you are pro-union or pro-democrat feel free to enlighten me on why I am wrong.
As far the the NHL Player's Union - Yeah real nice. I am not sure what they were doing but last year they went after Paul Kariya for taking a major pay cut - same thing with Selanne, oh and let's not forget Dominik Hasek - he couldn't play for most of the season so he refused his paycheck to the tune of $3.3 million - the player's union was furious! What a f*cking joke. I hope these stuffed shirt bloated bastards never play hockey again and they all have to :gasp: get real jobs. I am tired of playing their salaries.
Meanwhile behind the facade of the United Sheep of America while the pro athletes and celebrities make millions off us sheep we toil in the trenches and make it happen for this great country of ours for a mere pittance. Yeah that sounds about right! NOT x infinity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will be supporting the true hockey players of today as I go watch my local IHL team - some guys like me not making **** for money trying to make a living.
