Good article, Shadarr. Hopefully, the union will crack. I just want to see some hockey.

Another interesting thing I saw about the NHL strike is that the commissioner said teams are losing less money now by not playing than they do when they are playing. If that is true -- how do I  know -- that's an amazing thing. Certainly doesn't bode well for the game if the sides stick to their guns.

They still have hockey?

I'm willing to lose a whole season or more, if it means that the owners are able to do what needs to be done to fix the league.  If there had been a salary cap, the Jets wouldn't have had to move.  Quebec probably would have, because they just didn't have the fan support.  Fucking French.

I also hope that the league folds a bunch of teams.  That would go a long way toward improving the on-ice quality.

UAC! Fuck yeah!

Greg-

Over 76% of hockey revenues go to salaries, compared to 64% with the NFL and 57% with the NBA.

I still don't see how this is the players' fault. Do they sign their own paychecks?

Well, if the owners just had an under-the-table handshake agreement on a salary cap, the players union would accuse them of collusion.

lwf-

The players and the owners are at fault, yes, but the big money guys are looking out for themselves and not the little guys. They are a "union" in name only.

I thought the Union had set aside cash for everybody? Is there anything at all stopping them from finding other means of survival other than their own inflated ego and pride? Like I said, fuck them.

Greg-

Over 76% of hockey revenues go to salaries, compared to 64% with the NFL and 57% with the NBA.

That would agree with the commissioner then. Cause only 24% of revenue is left over for other expenses (and potential profit), compared to 36 and 43, respectively.

I just can't get over the fact that the players are saying they won't accept a restriction on their salaries, and to protest that they will play for $500 a week and all the fish they can eat elsewhere.

I'm actually interested in how government debt works.  The money has to come from somewhere, doesn't it?  They can't just be "printing" new money, otherwise they wouldn't actually owe it.  So who is lending money to an organisation that obviously has no intention of ever paying back the loan, and in fact borrows more money every year?  And why are they doing it?

UAC! Fuck yeah!

Man, I remember the good old days, when I bought my brother a Detroit Red Wings jersey from River City Sports in Winnipeg. I had it customized with his last name and favorite number, and with shipping, it only cost me $37 US.

1)  We make our minnimum payments and any creditor will tell you that that is their ideal client (payment + all that interest)

2)  The American Government has a large amount of collatoral in the form of federal land, natural resources and historical novelties (Lincoln's mummified cock)

3)  Political favors

Yot,

Yeah, if they weren't so stupidly expensive I would have several more jerseys than I do.  The two I own are ones I bought for playing floorhockey (Penguins dark and Sharks white), and neither of them have a name or number because that would've pushed the price over $100.

I'm willing to accept that the whole "all money is created as debt" thing is a scam, but people who try to equate tax with theft are stupid.  Without taxes, there would be no interstates, no space program and no tsunami monitoring system.

lwf's link is pretty accurate, although I imagine the quotes that end the piece are way out of context. Here is a slightly easier to understand link with more context. The difference between lwf and I, is that I think that this system is necessary and beneficial because the without central bank reserves you will get bank failures and panics etc. The only alternative is to end fractional reserve banking and return to the gold standard (or some other such standard) which would drastically retract the available money supply and would retard investment and growth in the economy.

So, more importantly, which thread should become the new sports thread? Or should we just flashmob any thread we want?

Use this one. We've already got plenty of US election threads.

You should use all the threads as sports threads.  And just respond to one sports message in a totally different thread.

I am curious: How did all of your local elections go?

We have the same Senator, who we all love. Most of our congressman remained the same, except for a couple new guys.  We have a new attorney general, our secretary of state is the same, and our governer race is SUPER CLOSE. Even now they are not calling it for any side because the vote has been swinging back and forth as time goes on.


It all comes down to the anti-civil rights pro-big business Republican jerkface, and the fiscally moderate former Attorney General pro-civil rights Democrat bitch.  God I love America.

All of our incumbents won. No big changes in state offices, but a couple of truly odious ballot measures passed (including an anti-gay marriage measure).

To whom do we owe the national debt?  I heard that a large portion of it is owed to the saudis.  They are happy to give us high interest loans, and bush is happy to take them up on it.
