It's hard to find support for this statement from MLB owners or those who dealt with him at the table. One recently cited article (which is now buried here in a thread about Fehr) says exactly the opposite, that he's a straight shooter and honest.
I know he's the devil incarnate now for Bettman's lockout (the third, but that's just a minor detail) on HFB, but I don't believe honesty is the issue. He's using what tactics he can to counter a very powerful foe, one that takes no quarter.
