I got their free one right here.
At this point, I hate to say it, but I have zero interest in giving the NHL or its player even a dime out of my pocket. Both sides are ridiculous.
I can't say I share that view. Maybe its because that like you i'm angry at both sides, but just not angry or emotional enough like everyone else here to just give up on the team.
I don't think anyone here is "giving up on the team." I'll definitely still watch a shortened season, but I will not purchase any tickets or merchandise.
I'll have to admit, if we lose the entire season, I would consider walking away from the NHL all together - except for the fact that 87 and 71 are on this team. And that right there kind of makes me into a fair weather Pens fan - which is not like I used to be, when I watched almost every Pens game the season in which Rico Fata was one of our best players.
Thanks NHL & NHLPA.
I can understand your frustrations, but I could never do that or any team I follow. I guess it's because i'm more passionate about the team. I'm a Steeler fan don't get me wrong, but I don't follow it in blind faith or with an obsession like everyone else in this town does. The Pens are my passion and I don't follow them because of the stars on the team because we could have the best player in the world Steve, but it doesn't guarentee win at all because it takes a team to win (if you remember the first year with Sid we were a very poor team despite his presence since it was just Sid, over the hill vets and raw talent in players like MAF, Orpik and Malone to name a few).
I do miss the game and it will worse when football season is done and i'll have no pro teams to watch. You know what I miss the most? The road trips. I always love to just get in the car and drive hours to watch a game. I don't go to any last year because o money, but I was planning to go to a few like to Buffalo, long island and Columbus to name a few.
Guess I can kiss that goodbye.
