I would say that he's not preserving public confidence in the League.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not on the players side either. I want Bettman AND Fehr gone and I want a deal centered around 50/50 done.

My original point is that I don't think having the players draw a hard line will prevent this lockout cycle from happening over and over again. Changing the principle players involved might, and Bettman is the number one constant for all 3 lockouts.
