Remember when we were so excited for what was shaping up to be one of the greatest hockey events in the history of the sport?
A time when more than 100,000 folks would gather at the Big House to watch two magestic teams skate in firece battle?
A chance to live and grow with our Wings and their daily activities on HBO's 24/7?
Well that's about to be the next thng taken from us by Bettman and his dirty fingers. Per the Detroit News:
Coming into these negotiations, the owners and Bettman had a variety of options for their strategy. They chose to repeatedly test the players' cohesiveness and their relationship with Fehr.
Their actions since last week — including denying requests by the union to continue negotiating, Bettman saying Wednesday a full schedule is likely doomed and reports that the Winter Classic in Ann Arbor could be canceled as soon as Friday, or by the first week of November — means that they are not done testing the players and Fehr.
When Bettman and the owners finally stop testing and start real negotiations, they will be within one week of a settlement. Unfortunately, we may lose another month — or the whole season — before arriving at that juncture.
Simply unbelievable, but that's only because we are rational people. The vampires running the league are not.
Makes me wonder why we ever started such a fan site in the first place. With that said.
Let's Go Griffs.
Bought tickets knowing that I would be leaving the state after graduating and may not have the chance to come see it next year... Can't believe that this is happening. Staying true to my Ferris State Bulldogs during the lockout, but not the same as seeing Pav blow people's minds and Kronner leveling anybody with their head down. Go Griffs and Go Dawgs!!
