An end to the NHL

  1. I really think that it's time that the National Hockey League was disbanded.

    My first reaction is that you should rip your tongue out of your own mouth...
    but then I hear Gretzky say we may lose another season and I think, fuck tradition! Time to form a new league.
  4. Hey, don't get me wrong--I love hockey. I just hate what it has become in some respects and would gladly see the NHL fall apart. I think it would smarten up both players and owners in whatever league would emerge from the ashes. For the time being, at least. Besides, the NHL is itself a continuation of a failed league, the NHA.

    Get rid of Bettman and you can save the league.

    When I used to go to Northstars games, I could sit in some of the best seats in the house for $20. Now the same seats here in Columbus cost around $80-$100. The crowd used to be blue collar. Now the lower section is all suits and ties.

    Yes, I have played hockey for almost 20 years. Now I do more coaching than I do playing.

    I loved floor hockey in gym. I could score from anywhere on the floor.. Those pucks could hurt sometimes with no shin pads, though. :eek:

    the hoi polloi, the great unwashed, commoners, laypeople, the herd, the mob, the masses, the proletariat, the working stiffs, etc.

    Hockey is a great game, with a very long tradition. Far longer than football and basketball. The greats like Orr, Sawchuck, Gretzky, Yzerman, and Howe are awesome athletes, and excellent role models for kids to emulate.
    Compare them to any other stars in any other sport, and they do not take a back seat to any of them.
    The lockout is robbing players like Brett Hull and Steve Yzerman of the opportunity to play in what could be their last season. That sucks.
