This Is Why Professional Hockey Is Becoming Increasingly Irrelevant & Dangerous

The Comissioner of the NHL - an arrogant, pompous dickhead is burying a great sport by his inaction & stupidity.

He added that unless the N.H.L. took “immediate action with serious suspensions” to “curtail these life threatening injuries, Air Canada will withdraw its sponsorship of Hockey.”

Although such action has the potential to hurt the league’s revenue, Bettman was undeterred on Thursday.

“Air Canada is a great brand, as is the National Hockey League,” he told the Congressional Hockey Caucus on Capitol Hill during a discussion on how to get more children to play hockey. “If they decide they need to do other things with their sponsorship dollars, that’s their prerogative, just like it’s the prerogative of our clubs that fly on Air Canada to make other arrangements if they don’t think Air Canada is giving them the appropriate level of service."

Nice, huh? I wonder who has the deeper pockets, Air Canada or Comissioner Bettman. My emphasis.
