The NHL and capitalism’s failure
The NHL lockout of its players is disgusting. On the one hand are the players who work at the game, provide the goals, the shutouts and the injuries. On the other hand are the owners who sit in their plush box seats, watch the game, and reap in loads of money. It is those same owners who are asking for a larger percentage of the earnings. Whatever happened to “you have to work for your money?”
The owners will say that it cost them a lot of money to purchase the team. Nonsense! They didn’t spend a dime of their money. They got it from the banks and it’s those who pay to see the game that are paying back the bank loans and then some. Isn’t capitalism great?
