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.
I think the players have done ok under Bettman. The players have had a harder time with the inner workings of the PA than with Bettman.
