dig that grave, it's done. Bettman took 15 minutes to piss all over any chance.

Bettman says Winter Classic cancellation date is "rapidly approaching."
Bettman has made two shitty proposals but of course he has somehow put it all on the players lol
No one is buying the shit your selling bettman
Golly. No NHL hockey in the Big Hole. I'm crushed.
Seriously, that's the only upside of the lockout for me.
Thank you, Denicos.
Actually that sucks because that whole ordeal would've been a great exhibition of the depth of hockey in the state.

This. Everybody knows about the Winter Classic game but not a lot of people know a lot about what we're planning for Comerica. It will be awesome if it goes on.
Well fuck it. Typical. Gsjahsuuzusuwheuisjejsjs. Ahhhhhhh.
I'm quite pissed off about this.
There's a toilet in the kitchen!
Good to see bettman is already putting his new arsenal of PR terminology into play, he paid a shit load for it.
I said the day Fehr was hired that this was the worst mismatch since the Christians vs.Lions, Fehr took on and beat MLB and the NHLPA players know that, that's why they hired him. A mental midget like Bettman has no chance against Fehr, and the idea that hls latest publicity stunt with a false deadline was going to shake Fehr or the players is just laughable.

As ridiculous as it might sound, Michael Grange reports that the players may have asked for... a raise:
Players should take the 50 percent if the deal also included Bettman resigning
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
They have so much animosity toward that dwarf that they just might go for that.
Considering the owners "offered" a 50-50 split of HRR, but refused to define what "HRR" was, .......
A pony. The players should have asked for a raise and a pony.
I think it's becoming more likely there won't be a season at all this year, which would just about kill the league.
They'll just postpone it a year. So we'll have to hear about for another year, I would prefer they just get it over with.
Pierre LeBrun is about as hooked-in as hockey journalists get, and...
Spoke with a team exec who says there's either a labor deal this week or there's no season. Not sure it's that clear-cut but who knows...

Hey NHL, you listening? You do this, and I pretty much say fuck it when it comes to the NHL. Won't pay attention any more. I'm sure I'm not the only long time fan who has stuck by the NHL until now that would say enough is enough.
you'll be back. the owners and players know you will be back.

Asshole owners make my favorite sport unwatchable and Dan Roushar makes my 2nd favorite sport unwatchable.
Asked someone connected if there is hope of NHL season: "Zero hope, season is done."
Great business plan. Lockout and blow up the entire season every 8-10 years. Superb business plan. Can't understand why these guys don't make jillions.
When you only have 345 fans, that line of thinking is destined to fail you. Pretty soon the NHL will be looking up at professional
I won't. At this point I'd much rather watch college basketball, college hockey (what few MSU games I can find) and the NBA. Four work stoppages in my lifetime already for the NHL means they don't give a crap about the fans.
