Something that we as sports fans have been accustomed to in the last two years has been a lockout of some sort. We had a lockout in football, basketball and now, hockey. It’s so damn frustrating and I honestly believe that it would be best if every commissioner resigned because that’s where nearly every problem lies.
Gary Bettman - NHL: This dumbass is now responsible for the fourth lockout in 20 years and one of the reasons why I decided to write this post in the first place. Stat time: That’s one lockout every five years. The entire 2004-2005 season was canceled and this year, it could very well be headed for another season of cancellation. This all rests on Bettman. He has continued to low-ball the players by trying to take more than half of the league’s earnings and give to the already rich owners.
In a perfect world, both owners and players would get half of the earnings but Bettman, had the owners propose a 57% percent share while the players would only get 43%?. What a damn scumbag. Apparently, $5 million a year isn’t enough for his pocket. Hey Gary. Quit being a douche and just resign. In addition to this disaster, the TV coverage is still terrible even after all of the improvements. So most of the playoff games are still on cable and to make matters worse, games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final are on cable as well instead of broadcast TV like every other major sport. Nice job Beavis!
David Stern – NBA: Where to start with this moron? Well, let’s start off with, of course, the lockout last year. He’s been responsible for two of them in 12 years. The one thing that pisses me off the most was the scandal many years back with former referee Tim Donaghy. The conspiracy proved to be true since the early 1990′s when some of the referees were fixing games in order for financial gains. I will go even further and say that David Stern knew about this crap and didn’t do a damn thing about it. To this day, I still believe there are refs fixing games. I wrote this article in 2009 describing a playoff games between the Bulls and the Celtics. There were quite a few plays down the stretch in which Derrick Rose was fouled and everyone knew it and yet, the refs never blew the whistle. The Bulls lost that game and eventually, the series. Fuck David Stern. He looks like a damn weasel also. That’s another reason why he should resign.
Bud Selig – MLB: A strike. Some steroids. He didn’t seem to give a shit about either. Enough said.
Roger Goodell – NFL: Where do I start with this ass rash? We all know about the Saints and their bounties. We all know it happened. But this guy continues to ignore what happens on the field. As long as this fuck face gets his money, he doesn’t give a damn who the referees are. He is basically pulling people off the streets and asking them to officiate a game. One thing I find embarrassing is that this past Sunday, they pulled a referee hours before a game that involved the Saints and Panthers because one of the refs was a Saints fan. The Monday night game with the Broncos and Falcons was an insult to the league and the fans. Hey dumbass. Pay your referees. The NFL pulls in billions of dollars each season. Goodell can afford to throw an extra few million their way. Joe Flacco of the Ravens said it best on Sunday: The replacement refs are affecting the integrity of the game.
Along with all of this, is the garbage that is Thursday Night Football. Games should be played on Sundays and Mondays only. I understand Thanksgiving games and that’s an exception. When I was a kid, they use to have some games on Saturdays towards the end of the season and that’s fine too. But Goodell bitches about player safety and yet, he signs on to throw some of the players out there four days later for now, the first 13 weeks of the season? Roger Goodell, who are you crappin’?
Rahm Emanuel – Mayor of Chicago: Yes. I know he’s not a commissioner but I am sure he would make a great one! I try not to bring my political beliefs to this site but I cannot help it in this case. With the teachers’ strike just ending, I saw an article the other day with Emanuel telling the union “See you in court”. So the teachers are getting fucked over and they want job security and benefits. He also tries to make the school days longer as well as the school year. The teachers feel they should be compensated for the extra time.
But instead, he threatens to take them to court and force them to do their job? They are a union. They are under contract and have the right to strike if they feel they are being treated unfairly. This is just another reason why Chicago is the most corrupt city in the most corrupt state in the country. Let’s not forget all of those extra and privately-owned parking meters in the city. Rahm is just another dip shit running the show.
