I was responding to the comment that not paying the tax on the rings is par for the course.

If it happened Thompson wasn't in the room himself, someone else from the organization was. The Thompsons are the richest in Canada and 17th richest in the world. They could buy everything Jacobs owns and still have billions of dollars in the bank so are unlikely to be intimidated by him nor would they allow someone like Jacobs to speak to them in that manner. As much of a jerk as Jacobs is, I doubt even he would have spoken that way (assuming he did) to Thompson himself.

If I'm Boston or Montreal or Toronto, I'm telling them to sit down and wait your turn. Being in the league for one whopping year does not entitle you to walk into a CBA meeting and dictate the discussion.

They were voicing an opinion/position as equal partners with the other teams and weren't trying to dictate anything.
