He says no ads are coming for NHL jerseys. For now...

It´s Silver and the NBA that needs to hear the boo birds ! 

FTFY 

but really betteman is the 2nd worst commissioner in all of sports. No one can beat god-del in being the worst. Adam Silver is actually one of the best commissioners, he forced a racist out of ownership. No other commissioner can say that and the addition of ads while being an annoyance to people like us it has very little impact on the game itself.

The commission has 2 jobs ... 1) uphold the integrity of the game.  2) make decisions to grow the league financially.

 

you can't kill Adam silver for the ads...

if it brings in $$ and honesty no one besides us will care.  Eventually we won't notice anymore. It will be like a stadium naming rights, or a jersey manufacturer logo, or sponsor logos on the boards in the  Nhl.  Eventually we won't even think about it  

 

goodel is often caught between a rock and a hard place... He wants to protect the shield but then puts his foot in his mouth and makes odd,

inconsistent discipline decisions.  But no one can say he hurts the game financially or the integrity of the sport. 

 

Bettman is a Disgrace--- 3 extended lockouts over his tenure.  What else do u need to say.  Hockey was huge.. HUGE... In the mid 90s.  Gretzky was in LA, Rangers were winning.  Mighty ducks movies were big.  Kids were playing hockey.  The sports was legitamatly growing as a true Big 4.   Now look at it... They lost their ESPN deal... Their NBC deal is a joke. There's other Sports more popular like ufc mls.  Bettman messed up big time.

There needs to be a source in your post to confirm this.

 

But you're right. As long as he continues to keep the jerseys ad free, he shouldn't get booed anymore. If what you posted is accurate, this is a very good decision on his behalf.

So much wrong here ! Ads do impact the game. 

and Adam Silver is actually one of the best commissioners, he forced a racist out of ownership.

ha ha ha, try recording the other owners and players phones, then there would not be a single owner or player left in the NBA.

Ok so tell me how ads drastically change the game? Does it make the players run slower? Nope. Does it it make a 3 pointer now a 4 pointer? Nope. All it does is as a patch to a jersey and introduces another revenue stream into the game which last I checked was a good thing. Will it bother some/most of us? Yes because we are weirdos but we are also a minority who actually cares about uniform aesthetics.

You're on the wrong forum.

I LOVE Gary Bettman.  

 

Dude has grown the game so much.  People blindly hate him for the necessary work stoppages.  When the players received over 70% of revenue, something had to be done.   People would rather hate a goofy looking dude instead of their local greedy sports hero!

The NBA knew Donald Sterling was a racist for decades and didn't care. Silver only acted because enough of the public finally got mad. He's a scumbag who brought us jersey ads and wants to raise the NBA age limit to continue the scam that is college sports. F him.

 

Also the NHL only turned down jersey ads because they weren't offered enough money for it. Supposedly they stood to make $60 million a year from it. Manchester United gets more than that every year from Chevy.

OK absolutely none of this is true. The commissioner's job is to represent the owners, full stop. Hockey was not "HUGE" in the mid 90s. It was #4 and always has been #4. It's light years ahead of UFC and MLS and losing ESPN was good because they didn't care about hockey at all after they got basketball.

The reason why i think the booing should stop, is because it´s ruining the  great Cup presentation moment. 

If the home team is presented with the cup, the booing and screaming is not that bad, but if the away team has won, the fans frustration gets taken out on bettman, with ear deafening boos and chants that ruin the conn smythe & cup presentation.

So i wish it would stop, or that they got a new guy to hand over the hardware !
