Meanwhile, people like me say "no, no, no - let's get Crosby his 12 mil per year (because he's worth every penny as that's who the fans go to see) and let the middle class fight for whatever they can get." Instead they are willing to kill the season to protect the plugs. The only people who give two craps about the player "middle class" is the players that make up that group. The fans don't care about them, nor do the owners, nor do the sponsors, maybe their wives care about them. Ok, so that's good.
Seriously folks. The superstars are underpaid, the plugs are overpaid, 2/3 of the league is unprofitable... the model needs to be fixed.
Everything you said was bullshit.
