It’s the fans who end up paying the piper

Yes folks, I am talking about the Hockey Negotiations between the NHL billionaire owners and their millionaire employees.

Dear Editor,

I find it hilarious, this fight going on in our newscasts on TV. I watch with great interest as the “Millionaires” take on the “Billionaires” for a labour contract. All us “Canucks” can do about it is watch our best liked pastime go down the tubes.

Yes folks, I am talking about the Hockey Negotiations between the NHL billionaire owners and their millionaire employees. Funniest thing about it is that it is us the “Fans” who have the most to lose. After all it was us “ordinary working class” who did the raising of those kids to the highest level of “Hockey Stardom” with our hard earned money and sweat.

“All of the hullabaloo” going on around this issue makes me wonder who was teaching who, was it the “Governments” or the “Billionaire” owners teaching the others? For this senior anyway, the fact remains that I will never be able to afford a live “NHL Game” for the rest of my life. Furthermore, let’s not forget the fact that it is the “Fans” who finally ended up paying the “Piper”.

Last but not least, when I compare our “Governments and the NHL Owners” they operate exactly alike towards their own employees. Rich will always get richer, and we all know the rest of the story. Even our history confirms what this Senior is talking about, if you don’t believe me, prove me wrong.
