    As was shown with the NFL referee lockout, this isn't exclusive to hockey anymore & if you widen the view & look at the whole "job creators" ideology, you see it is the way all business is being presented by the ownership class. The idea anymore is not to put out the best product & make a reasonable profit, it is make maximum profit & product be damned.
    The real job creators - & by extension, the real profit providers - are just assumed. Fans & customers are irrelevant in all this beyond the assumption that they will pay for tickets & provide subsidies for (if not outright purchase) the venues where the owners make their profit. It's no mistake that there is no one representing the fans in these negotiations.

    Who cares what banks may fail in Yonkers. Long as you've got a kiss that conquers.
