Bettman just announced there will be a lockout if there's no new CBA by September 15th. If it happens, that will make three during his time as commissioner. That has to be a record for professional sports.
Yeah, Bettman is a really good PR guy, especially after Fehr comes out and says the players will negotiate in good faith and play without a contract, where they have so much more to use.
His handlers really failed on this one.
This will be, what, the third lockout under his watch? That's not a good track record for any commissioner, let alone the second worst commissioner in any of the 4 major sports.
