Hockey Fans are making some noise during this lockout, for different reasons.
The second work stoppage for the NHL in less than a decade has been very unsettling, and fans want Bettman and these owner to feel their disappointment.
1010 WINS’s Glenn Schuck spoke with hockey fans outside of the NHL store in New York City at the beginning of this lockout, and got the reaction of three different fans.
Via CBS New York:
"The unions get greedy, the owners get greedy, they can’t come to an agreement and so you sit there and go, ‘well why can’t we come to an agreement?’ The fans are suffering. The owners and the players aren’t suffering, they get the money,” one fan told 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck.
Another fan expressed concern that this second stoppage will deter fans again.
“I’m worried about what they did five or six years ago when they had the lockout. I wonder what’s going to happen again, if it’s going to be the same effect where there’s not going to be hockey for a while and fans are not going to come out,” he told Schuck.
The third fan uttered their dismay with the spoiled and greedy owners.
“All of us that aren’t professional athletes look at it and say ‘Are you kidding me?’ You can make $6 million, $5 million a year, the better players. And the owners, they’re making money,” another fan told Schuck.
These fans represent the overall annoyance of hockey enthusiasts everywhere. There is no question that a second lockout in less than 10 years has fans riled up about the league.
