Boo Freakin' Hoo

NHL player Jeremy Roenick:

"I know we are going to give up probably more than any union has ever given up in the history of (professional) sports and, to me, I think that's enough to bring the fans back - to know what their players are going to give up as much as they have in the last year," Roenick said. "If people are going to chastise professional athletes who are making a lot of money they need to look at the deal we are probably going to end up signing in the next three weeks."

I'm supposed to feel sorry because millionaires stage the worlds dumbest "biggest dick" contest?

"We're going to try to make it better for everybody, period, end of subject. And if you don't realize that, then don't come," said Roenick, who spoke at a charity golf event he played in over the weekend.

"We don't want you at the rink, we don't want you in the stadium, we don't want you to watch hockey."

"I say personally, to everybody who called us 'spoiled,' you guys are just jealous ... we have tried so, so hard to get this game back on the ice," Roenick said.

You win Jeremy. You are indeed the biggest dick.

1 I had hockey last year. And I went to about the same number of games as the previous year, although the drive was about 800 miles longer round trip.

2 I've never liked Roenick before this, so I guess it's good that I never will have any reason to like him. Am I jealous? Maybe so. Who wouldn't be jealous of a bunch of pricks...sorry, "spoiled pricks" who are so good at what they do that they can take an entire year off, risk completely destroying their industry and then act so completely arrogant. I still love hockey, but Jeremy Roenick can kiss MY ass, not the other way around.

3 It's going to be pretty freaking funny if they ever settle this, open the rinks again and find that people give them a big collective yawn, shrug of the shoulders and a "so what".
