During the years in between league revenue grew by about 50% (from 2.1 to 3.3 billion) and Bettman's salary grew from 3.7 mil to 8.
Boy, doesn't this make it seem like outlawing cap-circumventing contracts would go a long way in fixing some of this?

Also, those numbers are crazy. And pretty much explain why I suppored the owners for the most part last time and the players for the most part this time.
