Granted, the likes of Stern, Selig and Goodell have no shortage of detractors.  But in light of Sirius/XM’s Dino Costa reminding his culturally-challenged listeners of his deep love and respect for NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on an almost daily basis, let’s consider the following ;

1) In what other major sport has a player felt comfortable enough, even momentarily, encouraging a fan to wish death upon his profession’s chief executive?
2) if Bettman is going to persist in publicizing the cancellation of events fans were actually looking forward to, can he at least pull the plug on something no one in their right mind would attend, especially if Jay Mohr was MC’ing?
