Arrogant? U Bettman he is!

His whole stance is a farce. His line of B.S. that the players would recoup the 24% in 2 years is just that B.S. Does he know so little of the sport he is intrusted to manage that he doesn't know that all of the player contracts do expire in 2 years? If his owners are so stupid that they would freely respend all that money then he needs to explain to me how that same owner, even with a salary cap, will not go out and sign 1,2, or maybe 3 players to huge salaries and then be strapped under the salary cap. Because if you follow his logic () the same owner who will spend wildly without a cap, they surely will not let a cap stand in their way.
