I think the whole steroids mess makes Selig the one that's worse — for now.
Jeez, you're really gonna make me choose?
To be fair, I know a lot more about Bettman since I stopped caring about baseball around the time Selig became "legitimate" commissioner. Bettman expanded a league beyond its means in order to leave his own personal mark on it (think about it); was/is utterly lacking in knowledge on the sport; talks about making hockey "profitable" but by this he means dumbing down the sport so people who don't like it can follow along....
Selig meanwhile has allowed player contracts to get completely out of control and doesn't seem to care that 75% of the teams in the league can never hope to truly compete...has introduced Bettman-esque changes to the game that must have made Bettman smile (or gave him the ideas....grrrrrr). Has bumbled the hell out of this whole drug escapade...
Yeah I dunno, it's pretty close. But since I care about hockey and don't about baseball, Bettman is worse
