Ditka Sees This "Lockout" For What It Is, "Selfish"....

I just read a Tribune article where "Iron" Mike Ditka did-not mince words as usual regarding this lockout (see article).

Ditka repeated something that I stated not to long ago, and that is the fact that we the fans are "really" the losers in this fiasco.  Even though I am personally leaning toward the players side, the reality here is the fact that these guys are arguing over "billions" of dollars while we stupid fools still pay the prices charged to either see our team on TV, or live at the ball park.
I hope and pray at this point that both the players and owners realize just how life is for those of "us" who pay the freight for their exploits.  We pay the ticket prices, we pay the prices for clothes, merchandise and paraphernalia.  We also pay the cable and satellite companies for those "special" packages so that we can see our teams play.  We pay for the magazines and publications that keep us informed about our teams.
 
So, just like in the "health-care" mess (where we are now paying more money, but get less coverage), when are we "fanatics" going to wake-up, and put these players and owners feet to the fire????  Give us the product that we pay for with our "hard-earned" dollars, or you can kiss our collective A@!%......
