Gary Bettman Receives Well-Deserved $2 Million Raise

For his tireless work to promote the National Hockey League and further solidify ice hockey as the number one professional sport in both Canada and the United States, for his efforts to make Sidney Crosby and other young NHL stars more popular than Peyton Manning and LeBron James among regular folk, and for his unending dedication to concentrating player talent in only the strongest markets with the best attendance, commissioner Gary Bettman received a $2 million raise.

Except that he hasn't done any of that. And he still gets the raise.

I would have made a post about this yesterday but I was busy screaming and throwing things around my house in outrage. Will someone please tell me why the hell he didn't get $6 million?!

Maybe he would have gotten $6 million if he found an even more obscure network for the tv contract than Versus.

I think the best network for hockey would be ESPN 8 "The Ocho".

I could do what Bettman has done for that amount.
