      Only thing Cherry is wrong about is 2 months. It will be at least into the new year.

      Idiot owners and idiot commish equals at least 4 months or longer. Owners are crying but still signing long term, stupid contracts. You just cant bargain with this hypocracy!

        No way. They’ve got too much riding on the WInter Classic for it to last that long. Lockout is possible, but not into the New Year.

      Which is an important step above those American clowns.

    Hahahaha. Have you ever seen an American clown? Ever one in a while they great citizens of the U S of A will elect one, and sometimes for a second term. Can you think of one?
