So once again, how did the NFLPA get screwed more than the NHLPA?
Trying to tell me that Tagliabue had an easier time implementing UFA and a cap system than Bettman, is a flat out misrepresentation of the facts.
The difference was between the approach these two men took. One understood that protecting the integrity of his league was essential, while another allowed his league to become a laughingstock and a disgrace. And he is still doing it...
Yet NHL salaries have risen at above twice the rate of MLB players and NFL players. What a terrible way he has treated those players
