Gary Bettman Contract Renewed

Booooooo to the NHL for renewing Gary Bettman's contract for another 5 years. He is easily the worst commissioner in professional sports and needs to go. Great, he won the lockout and got a salary cap, but he also expanded/relocated the NHL into unsustainable markets and half the teams in the league lose money. How is this a success? Perhaps if Gary helps move the Phoenix Jets back to Winnipeg I'll be a little more enthusiastic about his tenure, but he helped move teams out of Canada and thus far has blocked any from coming back. How much money can you lose in Glendale before you move the Coyotes back to a hockey market? I'm all in favour of revenue sharing and salary caps. I'm a sports communist, but my deal breaker is low attendance. Phoenix can sell tickets for $5 and sell out 40% capacity. They don't deserve a franchise.

The NHL owners need a splash of cold water in the face for renewing Gary's contract.

Booooo on you!

  1. Congratulations, you're an idiot! Phoenix IS a hockey market, and the Coyotes are here to stay. The Jets died 15 years ago.
