Gretzky made a lot of money for the NHL. If Wayne doesn't go to LA,would the NHL have 2 more teams in California? Michael Eisner and Disney plucked down a lot of money in their expansion fee to put a 2nd team in southern Cali. It was much more than $8M. Would there be a team in Phoenix? Dallas? The Florida teams?

The NBA players are mad at Jordan for being a militant owner and backing a deal which sees the NBA players get 50% or less. They forget Jordan made all of the NBA players rich when the Bulls were a championship level team. The NBC contract put hundreds of millions in the players pockets.

The people running these leagues and the player unions have short memories.
