As we officially hit the one-month mark of the NHL lockout, CBCSports.ca has been helping give fans a voice.
Until the game we love returns, we will continue to 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 Monday's Fan Comment of the Day via Facebook user Andy Tufford.If you two hypocrites were seriously representing the Owners and the NHLPA in saying that neither side wanted a lockout I think talks would have started on the Monday after the Draft or even before that. While waiting the other side out so that talks need to be completed in less than 30 days and with meetings booked only once a week and sometime even two weeks apart that tells me as a FAN that a lockout was always going to be used as a bartering chip for the owners. Forget Gary and Donald lets see the Owners from all 30 teams with Player representation from all 30 team get a conference room booked somewhere for two weeks and go thru the agreement line by line and get this done with minimal time lost. Remember this it is the FAN that will burden the cost in the end (ticket price, souvenir trinkets and, player jerseys) and with Organizations such as yours that depend on revenue form loyal fans you think this would have been settled before now.
