Also, they are not being politically correct, they are flat out lying. Huge difference.
And neither Bettman nor the players care about the fans. Otherwise there would have been no lockout, and negotiations would not look like two 5 year old kids debating over who's dad is strongest.
Every time the NHLPA feels the NHL is trying to rip them a new one, yet they end up doing more than fine. Why would it be any different this time around? It won't be.
I'm sure some of the players care about fans. They just care more about themselves, as 100% of human beings would in their situation.
There's no scandal here. Stop worrying.
In any case, players have to lie and say politically correct things all the time, regardless of what the genuine truth is. Whenever players say the genuine truth, the media gangs up on them, they get traded, etc.
