...or we can all go back to watching *shudders* poker on TV, like the last lockout...

Yeah, that's a great substitute.

I'm cancelling my cable until there's hockey again.

Grumble, grumble, twitch, twitch...

Nobody would be experiencing any problems if they had a life.

"Almost all of the owners (/owning entities) of NHL teams have large stakes in other businesses. By uniting a large group of NHL fans to start a boycott of at least some of these businesses, right now, we may be able to influence the owners in some way. At the very least, we can let them know that their actions are affecting us in a negative way, so we have the ability and power to do the same to them.

Here is a list of NHL owners (from http://icehockey.wik...t_of_NHL_Owners), and other businesses that they have a large stake in. You may be surprised at some of the names - if not the sheer quantity:

Henry Samueli - Anaheim Ducks
Broadcom Corporation - Computer & Telecommunications Networking

Jeremy Jacobs - Boston Bruins
Chairman of Delaware North Companies (hospitality and food service company)

Terrence Pegula - Buffalo Sabres
Owns the AHL Rocester Americans.

N. Murray Edwards - Calgary Flames

Rexall Sports (of Katz Group) - Edmonton Oilers
Owns over 1800 pharmacies in Canada, under the names: Rexall, Herbie's for Drug and Food, Meditrust Pharmacy, Pharma Plus, Super Drug Mart, and Dell Pharmacies.

Cliff Viner (& Stu Siegel?) - Florida Panthers
Cliff Viner is a general partner with AVM, LP a fixed income broker/dealer, and III Associates, a fixed income derivatives money management firm. Last I heard, Stu Siegel sold his shares in the team.

Philip Anschutz & Edward Roski Jr. - Los Angeles Kings
Philip Anschutz owns or has stakes in MLS teams LA Galaxy, Chicago Fire, Houston Dynamo, San Jose Earthquakes, and the NY/NJ Metro Stars; Los Angeles Lakers; Staples Center and O2 Arena; and the Home Depot Center. Ed Roski is also a part owner of the Lakers, and owns the Silverton Casino Lodge in Las Vegas.

Craig Leipold - Minnesota Wild
Leipold's companies own the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville, and the Houston Aeros AHL team. They also manage the Xcel Energy Center and the Saint Paul RiverCentre.

Molson Family - Montreal Canadiens
Molson is a big invester in the NHL (for many teams), besides owning a cornerstone franchise.

True North Sports and Entertainment - Winnipeg Jets
Owns and operates the MTS Centre, and the St. John's Ice Caps (AHL).


Now, obviously every person will not be a direct consumer of these companies. However, I am going to make my own "boycott list". I encourage any of you to do the same.
So, if a lockout is declared on September 15th, I will begin a boycott of the following:

- All beers produced/distributed by Molson (no Heinekin or Corona)
- Rexall drugs (normally gets around $50/month from me)
- Moxies
- Little Cesars
- Pizza Hut (BC)
- Sandman Hotels
- All films produced by Relativity Media
- Premiership games with Liverpool or Real Madrid, merchandise for either team
- Will try to influence brother-in-law to boycott St. Louis Rams (he's a huge fan)
- Fernie Alpine Resort, Kimberley Alpine Resort, Nakiska, Stoneham Mountain Resort, and Kicking Horse Resort (I go to Kicking Horse every year)
- No events at Rogers Arena when I'm in Vancouver (I catch concerts here)
- Bassano Hard Soda (will tell everyone it's terrible)


Feel free to spread this by any means possible. I am going to start tweeting information/etc. using hashtag #fanlockout." from the thread BETTER KNOW A BOYCOTT by D-Money

I encourage people to copy/paste this in a Word file and print it out then post it on as many bulletin boards as possible. I also encourage people to post this on social media sites. Band-wagoners and fair-weather fans can have their apathy. Show that you care. It will give you something to do.

Well there's one good side effect of the lockout.

Eklund will be crushed financially, so hopefully when hockey does come back, we won't get bogus Eklund rumors anymore...

Hockey will always be and as NHL owners do not like this idea and would like everyone to suffer so they get richer I suggest AHL hockey as it is a great pro league without these Billionaire Bully issues (with a front man like Bettman that everybody loathes even the sight of).
What we really find distasteful is NH league owners that hijack the game with their bully tactics ,weasel/rat style.
How many times does this have to go on before the owners start dealing with each other to save the game of NHL hockey from becoming an even greater,selfish joke?

Didn't Eklund get his start reporting on the last NHL lockout? If you look at his twitter he's still tweeting rumours and such about the lockout, including one "source" who says there is a 99.9 percent chance of a season starting in Jan. If anything the lockout stuff is right in his wheelhouse.

Things CDC people do during the lockout-

1. Complain about the Lockout to co-workers
2. Go on CDC and complain about the lockout
3. Go to local hockey games
4. Complain about the lockout to friends.
