Lawyers generally take a whole heck of a lot of crap, because their professional integrity requires that they take on their clients' causes as though they were their own. And we live in a world where people don't seem to be able to tell the difference between debate and browbeating, let alone arguing a position versus arguing one's own convictions.

Bettman has the same sorts of "causes" issue w/r/t the owners in his position as Commissioner. So, yeah, I tend to give him personally a break.
