2. If you hate Betteman because of the lockouts then I feel sorry for you. Not a reason to hate anyone especially considering Betteman isn't a dictator with supreme power who decided to lockout the players no matter what. It's happened because all sides are at fault, players, owners, everyone.
If you think they don't hate him because he is 3 for 3 in locking players out, a couple happening when they were younger, you're in fantasy land. I hate Bettman for it, as does the avg fan (hence the booing everytime he's in public) and the players are fans of the game too, whether you agree or not.

Funny how other leagues (not run by Bettman) don't have lockouts everytime a CBA is up. Also, you know what a lockout is right? Not once have the players refused to play hockey.
