As weird as it sounds after all the hand wringing and blame and angst of the offseason if training camp starts on time and everything is business as normal I'm going to be a little irritated. It's a bit like being used or being teased and a pawn in all their machinations. Afterall, they've put us through, someone needs to miss a pay check. Someone needs not to collect revenue for preseason games.
Right now, the person most abused is the fan. The athletes are getting out of OTA's which they prefer and the owners are losing revenue on ball caps, but not much else. Sure, they're sweating it out and working and arguing and the players who are free agents are sweating a little bit because they don't know what the future will hold and what kind of or how big a contract they can get, but at this point... if everything gets done this week and this season is just business as normal well, it'll just feel like one really poorly executed PR stunt.
Anywho, I suspect I'm completely alone in feeling this way, but I've come to the point where I want the feud to last just a little bit longer because I wanted both of those spoiled parties to actually feel a little bit of pain and lose something.
