    This isnít looking good thatís for sure. It looks like itís going to cut into the regular season and that is only going to hurt the sport even more.

    I would rather watch anyone rather than a bunch of greedy millionaires. Players that just love to play the game.

    MLBPA declined MLBs offer and no deal is going to be done today. So now the start of the season is going to get pushed back most likely.

    Re: Both sides are greedy.

    Generally nobody would watch replacement players. It's not 1994 and the MLB is not the NFL. Baseball is either a dying sport or just flat out uninteresting/boring in the eyes of many, especially under a certain age (lets just say 35). Saw a post on Twitter from a teacher that tried discussing the lockout with her high schoolers and none of them even watched baseball. That's what to me makes the MLBs decision even crazier. They aren't drawing in new/young fans and with this nonsense they are just further alienating what fans still watch.

    BTW I do agree both sides are greedy but based on my understanding of the situation, the MLB/Manfred deserve majority of the blame here, not the players.

    In a dying sport, wouldnít it seem reasonable for the owners to suggest that the players take a massive pay cut? The lock out is basically suggesting that operating the league isnít super beneficial to owners. Players donít really have a right to play for mega millions, they need to earn it with ratings, tickets sales and sponsorships and they are failing to do so:

    I think that's a fair take as well for sure. Agreed players aren't entitled to anything and if the sport is dying/failing to attract a new audience, that does fall on the players as well and it makes complete sense the owners trying to trim costs.

    I just think the sport itself is just not compatible with the current and previous generations. Millennials/Gen Z aren't built/raised to be patient enough to watch a 3hr baseball game with the minimal action that each one has.

    Players salaries have been going down the last 4 years while revenue has gone up. I think both sides need to realize how much theyíre hurting this sport.

    Can be interpreted as being a push by the owners to continue that trend. The star players were making way, way too much. Thine owners giveith, thine owners takeith away.
