He won't go off into the sunset, he won't be a hero, but he should be shown the door. Watching sportsnet today, the radio show they have televised, they were talking about how poor of a job the NHL does marketing their larger markets, and not demanding better out of them, as far as winning situations, Boston, LA and, Chicago being the largest markets, that really seem to be contributing the least, compared to the market they reach out too. I know people who might support Bettman might say, it's not up to the league, it's up to the individual teams to promote themselves, and I would agree, to a point. But the overall status of the league, especially the large NHL cities, and I'll exclude Toronto and Montreal, they're fine, is ridiculously bad. The fact that Wirtz in Chicago, blacks out local broadcasts is a travesty for Hawks fans, and the NHL should take it upon themselves to force Wirtz to change his stance on this. It's in the best interests of the team, and the league, to sell the Blackhawks as much as they can. The NHL network is a joke, I know it's a tsn channel, but the NHL should take far more interest into a channel, which sole purpose is to sell the game. A good point made by the guys on sportsnet today about Bettman. He's there when good news made, he's ready to take credit when they league has something positive to say, but he's absent, and never believes anything is wrong with the league, always pointing to other figures to suggest everything is rosy. I really believe this league needs a better man at the helm. I remember reading somewhere recently that the SCF was out rated by the Gold Cup of Soccer in the states, which is a sad state, IMO. I really think this league has only reached a fraction of it's potential, and with a better businessman running the show, maybe that guy who was mentioned from NASCAR, the league would do a better job selling the game, and not continuously draw less viewers than Arena League Football, or the WNBA. I'm sure there are some better educated posters on here that can shed some better light on who would be a better option as commisioner, because I for one am really tired of that Weasle Bettman running this circus.
