With the NHL lockout now in double-digit days, CBCSports.ca wants to help give fans a voice.
So until the game we love returns, we'll highlight one fan's take on the lockout each day from the posts we've received on Facebook, Twitter and the comments sections on CBCSports.ca.
Here is Saturday's Fan Comment of the Day from Facebook fan Brian Crocker:
"What are the players supposed to do? Sports and entertainment are unique professions where the majority of the revenue generated is 100% a direct result of the unique individuals involved - the players (or actors and directors, and to a much lesser extent the writers, or novel writers or songwriters/musicians). They should get the majority of the money generated. Otherwise, it just lines the pockets of the owners.
No one buys "Bettman" jerseys, no one buys a ticket to a Canadiens game solely because Geoff Molson owns the team, and no one buys "NHL Owners 2012" upper deck hockey cards. The players SHOULD NOT be taking a rollback, when the league is stronger than it has ever been, more popular than it has ever been and posted year after year of improved earnings since the last lockout.
The problem is 100% of the owners' making by not being able to restrain themselves from spending like drunk sailors on shore leave, and want to fix the problems THEY made on the backs of the players."
