Two days of talks between the NHL, the players’ association, and federal mediators still haven’t provided any answers on how to end the lockout.
President Barack Obama addressed the stalemate in an interview Thursday with WCCO-TV in Minneapolis.
“My message to owners and to players is, `You guys make a lot of money and you make a lot of money on the backs of fans, so do right by your fans. You can figure out how to spread out a bunch of revenue that you’re bringing in, but do right by the people who support you,’” Obama said. “And I shouldn’t have to be involved in a dispute between really wealthy players and even wealthier owners. They should be able to settle this themselves. And remember who it is that’s putting all that money in their pockets.”
