So with the NBA strike you start to wonder, who is really losing money on this deal? I think the players are losing a little, the owners are losing a little more (but they are trying to make a point, so they are to blame for this one), but as pointed out in the short from PBS, it is the small businesses that rely on having a team around that are really losing money.
When the hockey strike happened, I wondered what the point was, and with this strike I really wonder what the point of it is? I realize the players want to keep their rights, the owners want to make money, but between the two groups they are making Billions of dollars (total) off playing a game, can they not just figure that out and go back to it? Yes, I am nowhere near talented enough to even clean the floors at an NBA game, but as a consumer of their product (well I was when I was younger, not so much any more) I really have to wonder what exactly is the point that is being made here?
Get back to playing, and figure out who gets the millions off the court guys.
