No Hockey on the Horizon – Send Bettman an E-mail!

It’s official, the NHL has canceled the first two weeks of the 2012-2013 season. According to deputy commish Bil Daly, “We were extremely disappointed to have to make today’s announcement,” Daly said. FireBettman.com - a site dedicated to getting rid of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman - is for sale. Click here.“The game deserves better, the fans deserve better and the people who derive income from their connection to the NHL deserve better.” Typical commissioner BS… all smooth talk, and no actions that support the talk. If they really cared about the league, the fans, businesses and people who make their living off the NHL, and the owners, then the NHL season would be starting on October 11th, as originally planned.

Bettman claims time after time that the league has been more profitable year after year since the last CBA, and that the league has never been healthier. So what, the owners want even more money then? Or does Bettman see a problem in the future in the markets where he and the NHL placed teams that never should have had teams in the first place? If the latter is the case, the players are not the ones who should suffer and have to make concessions. The Mental Midget and the NHL should own up to their mistakes and pull teams out of non-hockey markets, and put them in places where an NHL franchise would thrive and benefit the rest of the league. It has been simple lack of leadership, vision and management on Bettman and the NHL’s part. The players, their salaries, and their demands in the CBA are not to blame for this lockout.

The NHL needs a real leader: one who doesn’t cancel a season or parts of a season three times during his tenure as commissioner, one who doesn’t place teams in non-hockey markets, one who doesn’t continue to support failing teams in these markets, one who doesn’t allow stupid new rules to be put in place every year, one who doesn’t allow head hunting to continue, one who will admit when he’s wrong, one who actually cares about the players, one who actually cares about the fans, and most importantly, WE NEED A COMMISSIONER WHO TRULY CARES ABOUT HOCKEY. Bettman’s #1 priority has been to make the millionaire/billionaire owners richer, and look where that has gotten the league. Reminder: three lockouts under Buttman’s reign!!!

So what will all of you fans do with your free time while the lockout is going on? We recommend that you take that time to send multiple e-mails to Gary Bettman, and tell him what you think about the lockout and why you think he is the worst commissioner ever in professional sports. Gary Bettman’s e-mail address is gbettman@nhl.com. Maybe that will help light a fire in him, and hopefully help save the 2012-2013 season!! Do it, for the love of the game!!!!

    How did this idiot get into power, and why oh why is he still there after so long and 3 consecutive lockouts? The NHL may have gone from making $400M to $3.3B a year in that time, but I refuse to believe that it’s because of a guy who doesn’t care one iota about hockey.

    Like they refuse to accept, you can market hockey until you’re blue in the face, but people aren’t going to come to the games or buy the merchandise if they don’t love the game. Don’t forget that the $3.3B “you’re” making comes from the fans. The only part Bettman played in that increase is by gouging fans for merchandise.

    Putting all of that aside, there’s no reason for any one person to control any organization for that long.

    No Ted Saskin on the horizon either, you’re going down Gary.

    Let’s hope that the NHL owners (especially the ones who own the Canadian teams) use common sense and decide to get rid of Bettman. Three lockouts is ridiculous.

    I think its time to bring some new members. They are not listening to what fans want, but what they want to do.

    “Bettman’s #1 priority has been to make the millionaire/billionaire owners richer” That is literally his only priority. His job is to make the owners money because they are his collective bosses. If he succeeds at this he will never be fired. Pretty simple really.

    You are officially a fuck, Bettman. When’s the last time you had your sorry ass kicked, gary? You and your bullshit legacy and the fucking ego attached to it is going to cost us another full season. I,m so sick of your sorry league.
