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.
Because he does what the owners tell him to? That doesn't make a lot of sense. What you are in essence saying is that the owners are bad for the sport, because Gary doesn't fart without the approval of the BOG.
I agree, the dude is a slimy ******, but he doesn't really have any power, and is basically a puppet.
