I love Rob Ray saying he’d become a replacement player.
I’m sure the fans at home can’t wait to see Rob Ray, age 96, return to the ice. I’m sure that’ll scare the players into agreeing to a deal with the owners. I can almost see the players sitting around, talking about Ray’s bombshell:
- ‘Guys. Rob Ray will come back if we don’t make a deal. We’ve gotta sign something. And quick. If Ray gets back on the ice, no one will care if we ever come back.’
Speaking of replacement players, Tim Panaccio remembers when the NFL went with replacement players (login info.). It was ugly. He’s also wondering if Flyers owner Ed Snider, a lifelong union man, would ever be a part of breaking a union.
I bet a lot of people are wondering that.
