Things are beyond ridiculous with the stoppage. I'm not even sure I want to watch when they return as they've killed my love for the sport. After the last stoppage I was pretty slow to return and hoped they learned their lesson. The fans are screwed and it sucks.
Should be interesting to see how the fans punish the league for this lockout. Big market teams will be fine, but I think we're going to see record low attendances with the small market teams, and ratings will be down across the board.
