I think Bettman is a little crazy and more combative than is productive but I don't agree with this analogy. A more appropriate analogy would be that your neighbor built a house, then, years later, after the economy changed and his financial needs have changed, he was offered to have the entire thing done over again and he accepted. Bettman didn't "knock down the house" in that he didn't cancel the old CBA - it expired. He wants to change it because times have changed. If your wants and needs change over time you're suddenly an idiot? Common.
