so, another season is slowly going down the drain, no summer league, no training camp, pre-season games being phased out... slowly but surely, this season is f*cked. and for what?
so millionaire athletes can make millions more?
so people who make their (PT) living at arenas are out of work?
how many players lives are affected the way they are affecting the lives
of the folks who love basketball, and those who make their living from sales of basketball-related events? what do WE get out of this situation?
why does this happen? when someone forks over billions of dollars to own a franchise, shouldn't they have a say in how it's run, and not be forced to fork over most of their revenue to players who aren't worth half of what they're paid? what have these players done to deserve so much money, by being born tall, with skills to shoot a ball?
I'm being facetious and devil's-advocate reactionary here, but I am so pissed this is happening, I just can't partake of these forums until something happens. Why is Derek Fischer representing the entire sport of basketball anyway? who are these players, and why are they negotiating?
this sucks balls.
Crazy 8's what's up man?
