For the owners....Rev's increased, negotiations went as well as can be expected, Hall of fame material.
My view: He did his job well.
Obviously he did something wrong if Bettman wants to blow up the system and says mistakes were made in the previous CBA.
Seems revenues are up a lot for about a third of the league. Phoenix went bankrupt. Atlanta had to relocate. Other teams like the Islanders are bleeding money.
Seems more like Bettman did a good job for a handful of teams. This is why he wants to reinvent thewheel with this CBA.
