Guys, I am not sure if anyone else noticed this. But if you read any Locout story on TSN.ca, the comments section is strange to me. In my circles most people i talk to feel equal outrage to both sides or feel atleast a little bit bad for the players that in this negotiation they will be doing all of the giving, and the concessions on the owners side are simply not to take too much. On TSN it is stange though. Any comment that is pro player is given many many "minuses" and anything pro owners is given many "pluses".
Its strange the majority of the comments are along the lines of "the players are making too much and they should accept what the owners are offering", "the players are biting the hands that feed them" "break the Union" etc etc. all of these types of comments are given high "pluses.
Am i too cynical to thinkt he NHL PR company is "stuffing the ballots" to demonize the players? Or do the fans up there want hockey so badly that they just want the players to cave so that the game comes back? Or is everyone in canada a small busness owner who thinks that the NHL business is the same as the business they own? the overall tenor is take whatever management is offering because you are making more than you deserve and the owners have a right to pay you whatever they want and if you dont like it pick a different career.
