I don’t feel bad for either side.

The owners still collected payments from season ticketholders like myself ($28K for LAKERS & CLIPPERS).

They’re refunding it to me on a montly basis, “after” the games have been officially cancelled...

The FIRST baseball strike destroyed professional sports for me, quite permanently. I’ve just seen it as a business ever since. I cannot suspend disbelief while trying to watch.

I do enjoy high school sports more, and minor league baseball can be a hoot.

And to anyone who does not believe it is a business: Look what everyone is talking about when a season gets delayed. They talk about the impact to business, both national and local. The restaurant ownder, the waitress, the traffic director, the peanut salesman, the team swag salesman, the city tax collector.

Yup. I’m still done with it.
