Collective Bargaining Agreement
Florida Panthers fans hoping to see the team take the ice this season got a major wakeup call Tuesday when the NHL owners crafted a new collective bargaining proposal that mirrored closely that of the NBA and other sports.
The Florida Panthers are coming off a division winning season and have real momentum for the future of a franchise that has been an also-ran in recent years. But, that enthusiasm may be gone before it starts thanks to a labor fight in the NHL.
There’s an old saying that there are “lies, damn lies, and statistics.” During each year’s annual buildup to the NFL’s selection special, the words NFL Draft could be added to the list.
If you were hoping to see Miami Heat tickets or Carnival Cruise Line tickets go down in price; you’re probably going to be out of luck for the coming year.
Miami Heat owner Micky Arison revealed Thursday that he voted against ratifying the NBA’s new collective bargaining agreement, saying that ballot was cast as a protest of how revenue sharing is expected to work in the deal.
Miami Heat swingman Mike Miller’s future with the team has been in doubt due to his numerous injuries in the past year, including the latest hernia surgery that will cause him to miss the start of the season. But he still may be on the roster for the full season.
Miami Heat forward Mike Miller has been the most likely candidate for amnesty under the collective bargaining agreement. Thursday, more fuel was added to the fire of jettisoning Miller.
The NBA has informed its teams that all games through December 15th have been cancelled, according to Yahoo! Sports.
As NBA owners and players continue to fight over a new collective bargaining agreement; the amnesty clause expected to be included in the new deal may claim a victim from the Miami Heat.
If you were one of the thousands of Miami Heat fans who have been waiting patiently for the Big Three to once again rule the court; you had better hope Saturday’s scheduled NBA talks finally complete a new collective bargaining agreement.
