So much for my excitement about actually getting tickets. This whole things sucks. I would think the league would want to do everything in their power to make sure the Classic happens, given that they will be making asstruckloads of money. They're shooting themselves in the foot, and shooting all of us in the face.

This entire scenario is beyond aggravating at this point. It's becoming hard to remain a loyal hockey fan through hard times like these.

The lockout is all because of money. Now there talking about the event that would bring in the most money of the NHL season. Foolish, getting tired of this stuff already and were only a week in.
This is what I don't understand--the players don't stand to make any more money with or without the classic! Why should they care, other than for the fans, which its already been made painfully obvious that no one gives a s*** about? The league stands to make a fortune. I don't imagine Mr. I is too pleased with this decision, given the money it will bring into the city...

“Gary told (the board of governors) he was going to cancel the Winter Classic in November because he didn’t want the players to use the game as leverage,” the report quotes the source.

I was kinda thinking the Winter Classic would be the start of the season the way things were playing out. Now I just fully expect the entire season to go down the drain. Too much arrogance and incompetent fools running this league to have any confidence they will do something sensible for once.

And I thought Bud Selig was the worst commissioner in sports.
Selig is horrible, but he's got nothing on Bettman and Stern.
