The NHL is back…almost.  Games are scheduled to resume some time this month, so owners, players and everyone involved with the lockout are reaching out to the fans to beg for their mercy. Today, it was Red Wings owners, Mike and Marian Ilitch, who extended their apology on redwings.nhl.com. Mr. and Mrs. Ilitch, I am very thankful for everything you have done with the city of Detroit, the Tigers and Red Wings over the years. But I sincerely hope that you do not think an apology via the team website is enough to winning people back. I’m not asking you to offer me free tickets or food or merchandise to attend Red Wings games. Instead of that, how about reaching out to business and people that were affected by the lockout. Give the Olympia Entertainment employees that were out of work because of millionaires’ selfishness a hefty bump in pay for the rest of the season. Advertise for the Cobo Joe’s and other bars nearby Joe Louis Arena for free. They should be compensated for the income they lost. A typed-up apology doesn’t do them one bit of good.
PLAYERS: Joe Louis
TEAMS: Detroit Red Wings
