I will. But it isn't scheduled to start just yet. I don't watch it religiously but I like to watch it. I'm pretty bummed they can't figure it out, seems absolutely ridiculous.

I used to watch occasionally, but mostly stopped after the '04 strike. I got back into it this postseason, but if the lockout cancels the whole season, I'll probably stop following yet again.

It blows my mind that these sports venues fight over money the way they do. "Wah, I'm only making $100,000 a game... boohoo, poor me!"

And the owners are just as greedy. What would these guys have done back in the 80s and 90s when they made a fraction of that in a season?

I DO miss hockey. I know the season doesn't begin until sometime in October (when the greedy owners haven't locked the players out.)
I agreen with @cpaguncowboy -- I can't see how these owners complain about money. They're the morons who agreed to pay the ridiculous sums to the players. If they can't afford to pay that, then maybe they shouldn't be making those offers.

I had no idea there was an issue until I heard a short blurb on the radio yesterday.

I'll also add that I've never (well... not never) watched hockey anyway.

Hockey is one of the very few sports I'll stop and watch while surfing. I don't actively seek out a game to watch, so I probably won't miss it.
I played in high school and some leagues after that. Money aside, it's an excellent game from a players standpoint.

vote-for4vote-against

Yes.

Oh, you meant because of the lockout. I miss my team.

Well I suppose it doesn't matter, we all know the Red Wings were going to win it all anyway.

Go Wings!

ITS FOOTBALL SEASON!!! Is this a serious question!?

vote-for4vote-against

I only have two sports. Hockey and Football. If there is a lock out this year I'll die. I grow a beard and everything. GO RANGERS!!

vote-for3vote-against

Yes and No. I miss hockey... but ultimately, I don't miss how awful I feel when my beloved Leafs continually lose and miss the playoffs again.

vote-for4vote-against

YES!

And yeah yeah, the season wasn't supposed to start yet, blah blah. But haven't you ever had something you looked forward to and then learned you couldn't have/find/get it? It's worse than if you never loved hockey at all! sobs

@the18thtee84: Sorry but I grew up living in Dallas and Loving the Cowboys, but the longer Jerry owns/ruins the team the less interested in football I become. The only constant sports passion I have is for Rangers baseball; I have followed them through many bad seasons, bad owners(Tom Hicks) and now in the good times. So over the past several years football has occupied less and less of my time. Now just a the Stars get new ownership and might actually be able to recover from the other Tom Hicks disaster, they get locked-out.

@capguncowboy: There are times I think "for the money they get paid I would gladly play" then I remember things like this, and figure I'll leave it to others.

@brandie346:

Are you from Atlanta too?

We all yelled, "GO THRASHERS!"

. . . and they went. :(

Never been a fan...probably because hockey isn't televised a lot in Arkansas.

vote-for1vote-against

Yes!!!!!!! I really hope there isn't a long lockout like last time. :(
