After reading/watching/following (twitter/facebook/etc...) everything that I possibly can get access to, I'm siding with the owners.


Not saying the Fehr's are not driving the bus the wrong way down the interstate, but AFAIK this is no longer about money. It's about contracting rights.

The fans have a right to be furious.

I'm just about done with this gong show. I'm going to see the Rampage and Barons play on Sunday. Screw the NHL. I'll find other ways to fill my time and empty my wallet.


#2335205 Illitch announces plan to build new arena

Posted by rrasco on 04 December 2012 - 04:07 PM

for me, the view of the ice is by far the most important thing to me. the other stuff i can deal with.

but then again i don't think i am the typical fan when it comes to going to sporting events. first off, i am smaller than the average person so the cramping of the seats isn't really a big deal for me. i usually don't buy food or beverage at the arena and i can usually hold off on the bathroom until after i leave the arena. when the game is over, i get the hell of out of detroit as fast as i can lol


I'm small too, like 5-5 150 small and I was still cramped. Bathrooms wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have 5 beers during a game. Just sneak in the exit, no one will care. I promise. :P

In other news, it's been 195 days 7 hours 46 minutes 1 seconds since the last Kronwalling.

If it's any consolation, I hated Bettman before his contribution to a 3rd work stoppage in 18 years.


#2334459 Another solid reason to hate on Cindy Crosby

Posted by rrasco on 21 November 2012 - 12:55 PM

It's sad this is considered hockey news right now.

AFAIK they have already come to terms on the revenue split and the definitions of HRR, it's the players' contracting rights that are stifling progress. Obviously I'm not in the room, but that's what I get from the reports.

So I was about to order a new Wings hat, mine are getting mangy, but instead, I ordered a Tigers hat. Take that NHL!


#2333718 Players Considering Retirement

That's why I'm glad that Lidstrom retired. Imagine him coming back for one more year, only to be slammed with a lockout like this.


He knew.


#2333292 NHL Officially Cancels 2013 Winter Classic

Posted by rrasco on 02 November 2012 - 12:50 PM

Yup, which is why they will not refund the difference. At least we will see 24/7 on HBO next season.


I don't have HBO :/

Maybe I'll take my center ice funds and save them up for next winter so I can have HBO.

Well, opinions can change. Having said that, I don't know what makes people more confident now that there will be games as opposed to two weeks ago. If anything, those are backwards from what I would expect.


#2333268 NHL Officially Cancels 2013 Winter Classic

Posted by rrasco on 02 November 2012 - 11:29 AM

Half the people I told I had tickets to the WC were like, "What's that?" Then again, I am in Texas.


#2333209 Can the NHL Please Cancel the Winter Classic?

Posted by rrasco on 01 November 2012 - 01:21 PM

Because there is rumor they will just delay the game until the following year. All tickets will be accepted then. May as well let the NHL have a interest free period with millions to line the coffers for another year. :)


That's what has me boiling.


#2333106 Where would you go?

Posted by rrasco on 31 October 2012 - 09:30 AM

So Z kind of went to Sweden?
Like a US citizen moving to Mexico is kind of staying at home?


Yep. Heck, using that analogy, I bet I'm close to Mexico than I am to you.

In all honesty, I wasn't sure how close Switzerland was to Sweden. Now I see they are not neighboring in much regard at all. It's been years since Geography.
