Anyone listening to Bettman talking to Ron Maclean. He started tweaking on Maclean just because he asked about franchise situations. Theyre absolutely going at it, Bettman is a huge ******.

He also basically called Scott Oake a liar not long ago. Amazing what the troll will do.

No kidding, Ron Maclean was cool and collected but Bettman was acting like a twirp. I don't often throw around the term twirp but it suits Bettamn nicely.

He was actually like yelling at Maclean during the interview. Huge ***

Haha, that interview was awesome. Bettman never seems to surprise me with how he will react/talk about problems around the league.

Who would even think of raising their voice at Ron MacLean?He's the calmest,most well-mannered guy out there.Seriously how could someone get angry with him?

He's just digging his grave at this point. Eventually his snide behaviour will get him pushed into a different position (CFO?).

Don does. You know that look he gives him when he disagrees... you know his ass is chapped.

I didn't find it that bad....similar to other conversations they've had in the past and actually not as bad as others. Up to about the about the halfway point, I didn't see any problems and Bettman actually made very good points, I'm not a fan of the way he goes about explaining things, but he was right in what he was explaining.

He seemed to get really defensive about talking about this stuff, suggesting the fans aren't interested in listening to this......that is where I think he's dead wrong, the fans are definately interested in it.

Later on he goes off about where Ron is getting his information about what the players want. I was disappointed with Ron's response though (getting it from Forbes and other journals....maybe Gary has a point here). I would have thought that Ron would have had more first hand discussions with players before throwing around what all the players want.

Mr. Ron MacLean is a genius. You will never see anything like this on NBC or Versus; they would feel it was a waste of almost nine minutes of airtime. And, it was worth it to hear "Inspector Gadget" say "do due".

Bettman continues to prove that he's a weasel, plain and simple. I don't care if the owners (supposedly) love him - he's bad for the sport.
