Sports on Strike

What’s the deal with athletes going on strike and owners locking up the doors to the arenas? Money, money, money!!! As the sports industry rakes in more billions of dollars every year, everyone wants a bigger piece of the pie. Whether the owners or the players win, the fans are the ones who definitely lose.

NIX the NHL

The 2012 NHL season is on hold and it doesn’t look like a start to the season is in sight. In fact, the commissioner of the league, Gary Bettman, is talking trash. He is saying that no matter how long the NHL stops play, the fans will be there whenever they resume play. Do you think he’s right?

So why is the NHL on hold you ask? It’s because the NHL made more money than ever last year, and the owners think they deserve a larger percentage of the profits.

NBA Blues

Last year, we all know that the NBA 2011-12 season was cut short 20 games. Was it really that bad? In the end, Lebron James won his first NBA title, but maybe there had been a full season, players with more endurance might have been able to stop his domination.

So is there a chance that we might not see an NHL season this year? Yes. In 2004, the NHL lost the entire season. The players and owners lost over 3 billion dollars and the fans got to save their money and spend more time doing their homework.

The only time you slide is at second and at third, sometimes at home. When you're stealing from first base you need to slide to second unless the opponents pitcher is clueless or is a rookie.
