Who Cares Anymore?

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

The players are united and more or less willing to wait it out. As for the owners, some of them like the lockout because they are not losing money, so they’re adamant about gouging the players; others are following the hardliners because they are just wired that way; still others are yachting because they will be printing money whenever the league gets back to work.

Their commissioner, Gary Bettman, is nothing but a front man. He does not have the power to protect the best interests of the sport.

This vacuum of leadership has sucked the game into a black hole.

Go ahead and take the rest of the year to argue over who is going to pay for the lockout. Take two years. It is apparent that the league is bent on a path to irrelevance and, at this point, fans are willing to cooperate. Most of us could care less every day. Mission accomplished.

How is that someone who works for a major newspaper doesn’t know that the phrase is “COULDN’T care less”? Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine.

That phrase doesn’t work in a context where people gradually care less and less. Couldn’t care less would be the bottom of the scale - a point to which the fans are descending.

How sad that all we have to discuss at this point is the grammatical syntax of cliches!
