Dan Johnson opens this edition with some skeptism about the players’ plight:
Paul Bissonnette, tweeted this back in early September to his twitter followers;
“Question to the fans. If a company you worked for was making money and they asked you to take a 24% pay cut would you do it?”
Every time I hear another story focused on the battle of wits and ultimate stalemate taking place in New York on a somewhat irregular basis, I think about this tweet.
And as much as I want to sympathize with the players in this dispute, it becomes harder and harder everyday.
