We argue that the onset of asymptotically free scaling for the string tension in SU(2) lattice gauge theories need not be associated with the bulk transitions seen in the Monte Carlo specific-heat data. This is specifically realized in a class of constrained models where these two crossover phenomena are completely separated.
