Maybe it’s the bug in my stomach I caught yesterday, or the time change from Sunday, but with each passing day I am getting more and more apathetic in regards to this lockout. Even after days of meetings where both sides are finally “locked” in a room for hours, we still are no closer to the season starting than we were two weeks ago. I worry about when we’ll start losing our passion and our interest in this game. It’s going to happen, and maybe for some of you it already has.
For now, today, I am just “numb” about all this.
Here’s the latest of what’s going on:
Elliotte Friedman says the Gloves are off: CBC Sports.
Is it all lies? Michael Grange from Sportsnet.
Are the players getting all the facts? Harrison Mooney from Puck Daddy.
After four days of talks there’s no progress. TSN.ca.
It’s gloomy right now for sure, but that doesn’t mean that things can’t change on a dime. Both sides seem far apart and no one appears to be in a rush to settle, however surprises are possible.
