Tulane Sports Law Expert Comments on NHL Lockout on NPR's 'All Things Considered'

February 16, 2005

A stalemate between the National Hockey League and the player's union was a source of comment for Tulane University Sports Law Professor Gary Roberts, who was interviewed on February 15, 2005 on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."

With the possibility that the season may be canceled, Roberts described the potential ramifications. "This might really be a mortal blow to the development of hockey as a major professional sport," he said. "And who knows? It might open the doors for a new hockey league to spring up. You never know. It might be a boost for Major League Soccer, which has been having trouble getting established in the country."

Roberts was also interviewed by Canda's Globe and Mail newspaper on the same topic.
