Goddell because he's ruining the sport that used to be my greatest love. Now baseball has overtaken it.

Who gives a fuck about hockey.


Press Play to wake up.

And then join the 100 Years Alan Pardew Club!

I was going to say David Stern because I hate him with the fire of a thousand suns but the way he takes the heat EVERY year at the NBA draft is just too good.

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



That is why the NBA going global was successful. Your contribution to that was most assuredly a partial one.

To answer the question, it's Bettman and not even close. 4 labor disputes and two lockouts that cancel the season in 8 years? Fuck outta here.

Stern has done a tremandous amount to help the league grow and it is incredibly foolish to say he hasn't. he made the NBA a players driven market which lead to the incredible Rise of Magic, Larry, and Jordan. Instead of focusing on making teams marketable he made the players marketable which is why the superstars hold so much power today because owners know that they are ultimately the ones that bring in the viewers and allow them to make a large sum of money. the only team in the NBA that is a team market is the Lakers and it is still constantly filled with superstars. Stern caused this and he did it on purpose and it is what allowed the league to become such a global sport.

82 games are a joke scheduling wise, but it's a smart business decision like any thing else Stern does. Everything Stern does is in the best interest of the business side of basketball which is again why it has grown so much.

The veto thing wasn't entirely his fault as it was the other owners that pushed him to do it. He gave a terrible reason as to why he did and should have never done it in the first place but what is done is done.

23 and under rule is once again because of what is in the best interest of his league. he doesnt like that his players get injured while preparing for it so obviously he's going to recommend such a thing. Also it would be nice to see more competition in those games, but whatever, you guys can enjoy winning everyone in blowout fashion(except for the gold medal games which are usually close). WIGGINS will carry Canada soon enough anyways.


And I can't complain about game 6 of the Western conference finals ...but yeah, it was entirely fucked up and robbed the kings of an almost assured championship against the Nets.

Past tense: owned. Tom Benson, the owner of the Saints, now owns the Hornets as well.

Roger Goodell, NFL: Oversaw Bountygate, which led to some of his rulings being overturned.
Tagliabue's report admittedly found zero evidence of a bounty system and relied on the words of a mentally unstable coach who was fired and the ever bitter Gregg Williams. All Tagliabue found was evidence of a "performance pool" that rewarded hard tackles and big hits, but not injuries or "cart offs" as Goodell claimed. $10,000 on the head of Brett Favre? Bullshit.

No one else "in the know" ever came forward besides those two and their inconsistencies did them in. Goodell looks oh so stupid.

WHEN Vilma owns his ass in court, Goodell will be shamed into resigning. The simple fact of the matter is that the league did not want the Saints contending for a Super Bowl in their home city and did everything in their power to prevent it from happening. Goodell, in essence, shit the bed. Now he's laying in it.

Wait, Bettman should get credit for getting TV deals he shouldn't have, but not the blame for ensuring they lost those same deals?

There awful Selig has his vote. He doesn't get out of this unscathed!

Anyway, GS are you seriously saying there was a conspiracy to keep the Saints out of this year's Super Bowl? If so lol. You're better than that man.
