Finally, I think this is the first time I've agreed with DR. The idea is horrible. No business would ever purposely decrease their revenue stream. Just like any other business, the league's problem is costs and that's what they have to reduce.
Please list the good things Bettman has done for the league.

As for capping ticket prices, well you really think those greedy owners would do that? They're going to charge the same ticket prices under a cap, thereby totally maximizing their revenue. They don't have the fan's or the game's interstes at heart here, people.
