Boo birds out for Bettman

Fans have their reasons for booing NHL commissioner Gary Bettman when he walks out for the trophy ceremony after the Stanley Cup has been won.

For some, it's the movement of Canadian teams. For others, it's the national TV deal.

As a non-hockey diehard, I'm beginning to wonder if booing Bettman has become a tradition, regardless of how he's doing. Kind of like how everyone yells "Looooouuuu" when someone by that name does well. After a while, it might start becoming a compliment - hey, they care!

It would probably be better if he was known for something other than getting jeered during what's supposed to be the most joyous moment of the season. But at least people know him for something.
