I did'nt call the players uneducated and I don't care to insult anyone about level of education or lack of. I have read most of your posts and back and forth arguments with alot of posters that I respect greatly on this board. It seems you have all the answers, so good for you, maybe you could send them to Bettman or Fehr. It looks like they could use more help than the few of us uneducated on this board.
I have different priorities than Bettman, so what use could have of my answers?
I want what's good for the game, he wants what's good for the owners. His business strategy is to lower the players share through successive labour battles every five or six years. I don't think he's an idiot at all, he's no moron in need of answers from some outside expert. He has legitimate answers that are good for his clients.
Lower the players' share to 50% this time, to 40% in 2018, to 33% in 2025, etc. that's no moron's strategy. That's a good, sinister, and perfectly sound plan.
