President Barack Obama is urging the end to another sports labor dispute.
While taking questions from viewers on NBC's ''Tonight Show'' with Jay Leno on Wednesday, he was asked if he could pull any strings to end the NHL lockout.
Obama says: ''Every time these things happen I just want to remind the owners and the players: You guys make money because you've got a whole bunch of fans out there who are working really hard - they buy tickets, they're watching on TV.''
He adds: ''You all should be able to figure this out. Get this done.''
The president sent a tweet last month urging the NFL and its officials to end their labor dispute.
