I dunno man... I lasted through the shortened season a few years back... but I don;t think I have been into it as much as I was before then. BEfore, I would watch or listen to every single game. After not so much every one. IF and when it comes back, I don't know if I will jump right back into watchin all the time, watch more, or watch less. I think the longer it goes, the more I see there are other things to keep entertained by than hockey. I don't think i'm alone either. They are f-in up big time.

The money has ruined the sport. Hockey is just the latest in a long line. I used to have season seats for the Blues at the Checkerdome in the 80's I even had season seats for the Sun Devils minor league team in Daytona Beach in the early 90's. After the short season, like with baseball, I dumped them. When millionaires are arguing with billionaires over money and a single game ticket costs 75 bucks with 5 dollar hot dogs and sodas, even parking runs 10 bucks now. This tells me money is all they care about. They don't care about the fans or the cities or pride in the team history, all they care about is money. So I will keep mine and use it to buy 10 dollar minor league or college game tickets. You, the fan, has the ability to dissolve the league. Take away their money. Boycott the TV advertisers, the root of the money problem, and they will stop advertising, and the whole house of cards will collapse. Wouldn't it be funny to hear them scream about prices, trying to raise their families on our salaries?

OMG :iagree: !!!!! And the bad thing is, I LOVE sports! But it shouldn't BE about the money. It should be for the LOVE of the game. *Sighs* BAck in the day, that's ALL it was about. But now it's all about money, and salary caps and which team can accquire the "best" player for a 25 million dollar contract. It's a shame that most players' greed gets the best of them and clouds their true talent.

Really well stated BB. I haven't been to a professional game of any kind in 6 years (ignoring my anniversary gift trip to a Cubs NLCS game). Costs are out of control.

What he said.

Hell, it's happening to college too. At the Sugar Bowl last year the bands couldn't even play during time outs b/c they had NOKIA commercials on the jumbotrons, etc.
