NHL Lockout

I care. I miss it a lot.
The NBA is absolutely the worst pro sport going right now as well as the most overated. With hockeye gone sportcenter is now filled with highlights of these overhyped atheletes that were an embarrasment on the world stage a few months ago.
I was personally glad to see all those egotistical pricks get their lunch handed to them buy a bunch of Europeans. It should've made the sport sit back and rethink the direction of the league but it hasn't and won't.
Please bring back hockeye soon. A real team sport.

I dont think you can sit there and be critical of the NBA and its players when your "team sport" is in a lock out because the players dont want a salary cap, like every other "team sport" has. I am not an NBA fan either or hockey but you as a hockey fan should know that your sport is just as problematic as the other sports.

They wont accept a salary cap, which would set a limit on minimum salaries and highest salaries, but during this lockout a few hundered of them are playing overseas for chump change compared to what they would get with a collective bargaining agreement with a salary cap.

You are making an assumption that I was making a comment on the adminitrative or finacial situation of the game of hockeye. I was not.
My comment concerned the game itself.
It is a better game with more emphasis on team and less on individual stars.
This is what I as refering to. Read my post again and tell me where I mentioned anything about the overall state of the game or it's management.
Even my mention of the direction of the league is more towards the players playing styles as well as the coaches coaching style.
