Do you agree with this tweet about the NHL lockout?

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      I felt sorry for the people who lost income during the NHL lockout, including several broadcasters.

      But I have a hunch that the tweet above by former CTV news director Margo Harper sums up the sentiment of many Vancouverites.

      Last night as I watched the breathless coverage on the CBC National News, I could only think of one thing: "Their bosses are going to be glad to have all that advertising revenue from Hockey Night in Canada."

      Never in my life have I ever seen a work stoppage treated with the same childish giddiness as the NHL lockout.

      For more than 113 days, every sports-reporting idiot insisted on updating a story that had NO update. Truly sick. Reporters and editors behaved as if we were looking at a hostage incident in Iran.

      Margo Harper is right: Over-hyped. I would include "pathetic", "ridiculous", "stupid", "idiotic", etc.
