Lockout the NHL?

Another day has come and gone and still nothing positive to show for it. Talks are occurring but when it all comes down to it what really is being done? Fans could be looking at no hockey now until the new year or now possibly all year.

An idea I had is when the NHL finally gets its act together maybe we should give them a dose of their own medicine. What if the fans, media and everybody else involved refused to go to the games, watch the games, and cover the game for 1 week or even a month? Could you imagine what the reaction would be like from the players and owners? I know there are the players that play for the love of the game and to provide for their families but what about those players that love the attention.

Some questions I would have is how organizations with deal with the loss of income while the teams are playing? Another question I would have is I wonder how they would feel and also would they realize how everybody involved felt?

The only way I would feel bad if this was ever to happen is those who work for these teams. That would be concession workers, ushers, security, production people that put the game on TV and radio and students that might join a organization for internships and such.

Now I know this is far-fetched, but if this could ever happen it would be something. A way to show the league that people could care less about the money that is being fought over but to show people we just want to see some hockey. What do you think?
