We're suppose to be a few weeks away from the greatest sports time of the year. College football, NFL, MLB Playoffs, and Red Wings followed up by College Football, NFL, MSU Basketball, and Red Wings.
I "unliked" the Official Red Wings Facebook page the other day after posting that the lockout made ME feel unliked, and I wouldn't be back until the players were.
It would be one thing if the owners hadn't gotten everything they wanted last time around; it would be one thing if the league was down, or losing money. None of those things is true. Owners may be unable to make good business decisions; the league may be forcing hockey into places that are not hospitable to it; but it's a $3.3 billion/year pie, people. Split that bad boy and get back on the ice.
Thank you, Denicos.
The NFL set a precedent when the players caved in and made it impossible for any NFL team to lose money no matter how poorly ran. Now the NHL owners figure they can do the same thing with a much smaller pie. The funny thing is that the NHL has always been able to find the worst owners in professional sports and even if the owners got 100% of the revenue there would be teams in Phoenix, Nashville, Florida, and Columbus that would find a way to lose money.
If there is a business model that the NHL needs to copy it's MLB, not NFL, not the NBA.
