Default Who's the worst Commissioner in the big 4 sports (NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB)?

I know, it's American sports, but hey, that's who were dumping on...

Someone asked me today "Which commissioner is the best of the current 4 major sports?" and I was thinking about it, and was like "Wow, damn, they're all pretty terrible eh?"

Let's review:

Bud Selig, MLB: Been the commissioner (basically) since 1992, officially since 1998. Famously declared an All Star game a tie with no winner, and has presided over the most taint era of any sport as far as performance enhancing drugs go, doing little about it until recently, and even then people are still failing drug tests with semi lenient penalties. Oh and he's fucked the Houston Astros (specifically) organization in the ass with a big rubber dick on numerous occasions.

Gary Bettman, NHL - While the NHL has grown tremendously under his tenure, his decisions to take teams out of Canada and put them in the southern USA has pissed off a lot of people. Has been involved with three labor issues resulting in shortened seasons, more than any other Commish. Probably the most booed Commish as well.

David Stern, NBA: Like Bettman, the sport has no question grown tremendously under him. Also, no question, has presided over the most corrupt officials of the four major sports. While Bud specializes in fucking the city of Houston over with seemingly petty stuff, "Big Dave" essentially fucked the Sacramento Kings out of an NBA title. Oh the 1985 Draft fix was on his watch too. And the Chris Paul trade veto, since the league owns the Hornets. Fun fun.

Roger Goodell, NFL: Has endured one player lockout, and one referee lockout, which as of this date, caused some waves in seeding and teams making and not making the playoffs with a total disaster highlighted by the Seattle/Green Bay game. Oversaw Bountygate, which led to some of his rulings being overturned. Has considered eliminating kickoffs from the NFL (not a joke) and adding more playoff teams - to help those sub .500 teams get into post season. Imagine the 2012 San Diego Chargers as a playoff team? Yikes.

So, which one of these primates is your pick for the worst Commish? Does anyone even like any of these guys at all?

It's pretty obvious it's Bettman. Potentially 2 lost seasons in 8 years? C'mon now.

Goodell has actually seriously brought forth the idea to eliminate the kickoff. Fuck that and fuck him.

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).


What teams were taken out of Canada? The NHL guy is definitely bad, but is he solely at fault for labor disputes? I don't think so.

Bettman.

In 1992 when Bettman was appointed commissioner the NHL was rivaling the NBA in most markets for the 2nd spot behind the NFL. Believe it or not back in 92 hockey was bigger than basketball in such citys as New York. Flashforward 20 years and the NHL is competing with bowling in the ratings department.

And he's the guy that thought moving the Jets from a market where they sold out almost every game to a bloody suburb in the desert where they average about 9000 fans a game was a good idea.

Thank's Gary!

Profit may be up but the NHL takes a backseat to darts in most of the states
