Stern is a piece of shit too.
Selig is the worst though. He allows awful trades and shady dealings to go down for his gay lover Jeffrey Loria. I mean they have to be lovers with the shit he's allowed Loria to get away with (the Expos/Marlins deal was some seriously shady shit).
I was torn between these two, and ultimately voted for Stern. Bettman is a popular choice because the NHL is currently in another labor shortage, but he's also secured some TV deals that the NHL honestly didn't deserve, so he gets some credit for that. The labor stoppages are a joke, but the NHL has grown a bit. Goodell has had bad circumstances hit him, that were not his doing.
Bud Selig is terrible, and I'm amazed he doesn't have a single vote. I was so close to voting for him, I think you need to, he shouldn't escape this with 0 votes. That guy had the Astros play home
games in Milwaukee - against the Cubs, who had fans nearby, and they enjoyed home games basically on the road and I believe got no hit by Carlos Zambrano there. Ordered the Astros to close their roof once, changed game start times on them to help west coast teams, etc. Fucking steroids have wrecked
baseball, the record books, and that an never ever be reclaimed. He claism that it wasn't his fault, but he didn't impose harsh enough penalties or severe testing measures to prevent it either. In theory, he knowing let
McGwire and Sosa (and later Bonds) juice so they could chase Maris and get fans back that had left in 1994 due to that strike that screwed the Expos out of a championship. Jesus somebody vote for this fucking guy, already starting to think I voted wrongly for Stern. But...
But David Stern is a fat fuck cunt who manipulates the league ad nauseum and has a horrendous scheduling system that has numerous teams (see the San Antonio Spurs) rest players on these "4 games in 5 nights" stretches, and then he blames the fucking team
for resting what is clearly
older players who need the rest. Greg Poppovich should of told Dave "Fuck you and I hope you fall off a ladder soon, dickhead" for receiving that fine. It was the league's fault. He has outright rigged things to what he feels should happen. He works for the owners, not the player. He's not even a likable person either. It was his idea to have only "23 and under" players in the Olympics. Hey Dave - I like winning the gold in the Olympics, Country > NBA. Go fuck yourself. Who the hell appoints their own successor anyhow? What is this, fucking Cuba?
Yeah the NBA grew under your tenure, sure. You want to know why?
and more importantly a man who's name or face I don't have to mention, a mere logo will do
is why the NBA going global was successful. Your contribution to that was most assuredly a partial one.
