I may not say anything new here. Some of it will be repeat for certain, but....
1. The Canucks have sold out year over year, and they will do so again this year and for the forseeable
future. As such, lowering the ticket price is a total hit off their bottom line.
2. The ownership was only half the equation to this whole mess. What are the *players* doing for the fans? If the offer that the Canucks were making was doubled (the players also doing their part), then would that be good enough for everyone? Isn't it really the players we should be complaining about?
3. There is no law or requirement that says the Canucks had to do anything at all. What they've done (as little as it might appear) is at least *something* and I've seen little appreciation for it. I have a feeling that not many of you would change your minds until they provided free swag and stuff. Free is something that's really eye-opening for cheap people and complainers, but maybe even then it wouldn't be good enough for some of you.
4. The whole "apologize to the fans" is really a bit of BS in the first place. I mean, this is a business. In the world of business, strikes happen and things go sideways. While there would be no business without the fans, it is still our personal choice to follow overpaid athletes who weren't even born in the city they represent throwing a little piece of rubber to each other.
Guys... seriously. Just suck it up, and enjoy what season we have left.
