Wednesday's Dump & Chase: The Worst Commissioner In Sports? (It's Not Gary Bettman)

Don't get me wrong. He's not great. Just not the worst. Here's my list from worst to least worst (is that the way you say it?), with links to the case against each. 1. Bud Selig, if Jeremy Jacobs was commissioner. For 20 years. 2. Roger Goodell, NFL...100 game regular season, anyone? 3. Mark Emmert, NCAA...if you love inconsistent and ridiculous suspensions, have I got an organization for you! 4. David Stern, NBA...(allegedly) crooked draft lotteries, (actually) crooked officiating. 5. Bettman. You've seen the evidence...let the debate begin! ( We're in the home stretch in the Toast of Music City Reader's Choice Awards...get your vote in today! Let's bring home the trophy! EDITOR'S NOTE: I don't think it's a trophy. More like a piece of paper. But it's still awesome! GO VOTE! )
