Bettman vs. Goodell




I was struck by envy today which makes no sense. Can a person envy a person who governs another sports body and loathe the one that runs your favorite sport? NFL commish Roger Goodell was on the spot in a sideline interview at a college football game. He fielded, with dignity, some questions on tough topics such as agents in amateur football and Favre. You can see it here, http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/22825103/vp/39701699#39701699


It filled me with renewed rage that Gary Bettman continues to run the ship in the NHL. He who talks with false enthusiasm about chicken fricken fingers. See here, http://www.milehighhockey.com/2010/10/7/1738045/game-1-recap-avalanche-4-blackhawks-3-ot#48786824

He who has lost the respect of the fans who pay his salary. See here,  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQqkjxNSWZ0&feature=related

He who ... well I can't describe this one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ew84MplyjM

I could link youtube videos of Bettman all day but you can just search it yourself. He is always on the defensive and has false bravado about his work. Everything is ok, fans are lost in hysteria (yes he used that word), and the media is after me with a sledgehammer (yes he used that word.) What a weasel.

Sigh. If Goodell can avoid a lockout it will be even more frustrating.
