If Fehr doesn't care about the players, why did he come out of retirement to do the job? Why have both MLB and NHL players said nothing but positive things about his stewardship? It isn't about money; Fehr has lots of it and could still have the MLB job if he wanted. I'd like to think it is bigger than some ego.

The fact is, Fehr does care. He does care about the players, he's at the very least pretended to be interested in the game as a whole, and quite frankly, the best way to help the players is ensure continue growth of the league and sport.
If it's not about the money, then wouldn't EGO be the next biggest thing? The guy wants to WIN. (If I didn't care as a player about playing this season, I would have hired him too)
