The frustration level stemming from NHL lockout is growing from both sides. But has the ongoing stalemate between the owners and players given hockey fans a reason to feel apathetic? One fan thinks so.
Tuesday's comment comes from CBCSports.ca user Johnny Evil, who doesn't sense any desperation from other people he's talked to regarding the lockout:
I was noticing recently that you don't seem to hear the fans crying out for hockey. Am I just missing that dialogue or is it not there? In previous strikes, I'd see and read all kinds of stuff about how fans were "outraged" about hockey being gone. This time there's nothing!
To me, that's something the players, owners and the league in general should be worried about. In years gone by the mentality was always "oh the fans will come back. They'll forgive and forget very quickly and go back to paying $150 a ticket, $20 for parking and $9 for a 12 oz beer"
Maybe it's just my own apathy, but it seems different this time. It's seems like people understand(rightly or wrongly)that this is about millionaires engaging in infighting and that the fans don't care what happens one way or the other.
What do you think?
