To do with Gary Betman. The guy doesn't tell the owners to DO ANYTHING.

The Owners run the show..... PERIOD. Don't be so naive.
They don't pay him his insane salary to just be a mouthpiece, he has to take all 30 owners into a consideration and put a proposal to them about what's best for the league as a whole. Some of you make it sound like he has no input but of course he has a ton of input, you have single owners, companies who own teams, small, medium and large market teams, teams that are making a ton of money (almost all of them in Canada) that support teams that have very little interest (sunbelt teams) so he has to deal with all of that. He isn't just a puppet.
