NHL & NHLPA: Save the 2012-2013 NHL Season

In less than two weeks Gary Bettman has said he is going to lockout the players. We cannot let him do this.

Once again the NHL is undermining all hockey fans, totally forgetting that there is no one more important than us. While the owners and players squabble over their millions, the average fan can still barely afford ticket prices. 

When will they acknowledge that there would not be a successful league without us?! 

At this point, Gary Bettman has made it clear that he is prepared to lockout the players on September 15. As a passionate fan, I resent his assumption that we will all come crawling back again whenever he is ready to start the season. 

We demand that the league and the players start training camps and the regular season on schedule no matter what it takes. We are not going to simply stand by and let them ruin another season.

Sign this petition and share it with everyone you know.

      the people that support the players are being dragged through this but worst of all - the people that earn the less are losing the most. all the employees that are out of work, the mascots taking pay cuts just to have a job...please guys realize that although it is a career...you make a stupid amount of money for playing a game....same as others but really...time to get rid of Bettman.....as always he's the root of the problem.
