Still happened under Bettman
Do tell. What metric are you using exactly? Phoenix is in bankruptcy, Atlanta was relocated to a small city in Canada. More fans? More TV eyeballs? More $$?
Baseball is easy enough to compare. Pheonix in bankruptcy? La Dodgers in bankruptcy. Atlanta relocated? Montreal relocated.
Players salaries alone have risen astronomically compared to baseball.
