Ian White on Gary Bettman: "I personally think he's an idiot"

Ugh...

JohnBorukCSN:
Wings D Ian White on Bettman: "I personally think he's an idiot" Wow. Bettman is a Cornell grad. Does White even have a HS diploma?

An idiot is somebody who does short sighted, stupid things.

If by "bettman" he means "loudmouth NHL players who absolutely have to be heard", then yes, he's right.

And this is why the players annoy me throughout this process. He's no more idiotic than you Mr. White. Now go back to not playing hockey.

Yeah, he's an idiot and the players who have lost more real dollars than they can possibly reclaim in negotiation are all geniuses. Both sides need to shut up and work.

Sometimes context helps. Sometimes it doesn't...

Speaking after an informal skate today in Troy, White lashed out at NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

"I gotta be honest: I personally think he's an idiot," White said. "Since he's come in, I think he's done nothing but damage the game."

The league and the players have been at odds since Sept. 16, when owners locked out players.

"The whole process has just been frustrating," White said. "I think, just where we stand now, you'd think that we're close to making a deal if they're willing to come a little bit our way. It's something that could have been done even in the summer. So it's frustrating. There's just absolutely no need to be missing games and doing this kind of damage.

"It looks awful. Every day I take a look -- you look at the calendar, and then you look at the position, and nothing has really changed. It's getting pretty close to being tragic."

This is neither newsworthy nor worthy of its own thread.
