Now we know why Gary Bettman speaks for his owners, fines them, and has full control over the cba negotiations.

He's not wrong.

The players and the owners are fighting over money, do you really think it's in good taste to tweet a picture of stacks on stacks of cash like it's nothing to you? It put a bad taste in my mouth towards the players this morning, and I haven't picked sides in this brawl since September.

If Jeremy Jacobs, or Dolan, tweeted a picture of themselves swimming in a bathtub full of money, what do you think the Union's reaction on Twitter would have been?

I care because it goes to show you what they're truly fighting for; themselves. The players (some) don't play for the fans anymore, they (some) play for the money.
