Well deserved.

Now I'd like the NFL to follow up and force the owner of the Washington Football team to change its racist name.

Can we un-ban Pete Rose yet?

The story on the CBS LA affiliate website (not the one linked) states that "Stiviano ... is of African-American and Mexican descent."

So she can't bring black people to the game, but he can? She can't 'advertise' her association with black people, but he can have a sexual relationship with one?

I mean, obviously the comments are outrageously offensive and detrimental to the team and league, have no place in the game, etc. But you just can't believe the goddamn hypocrisy.

good start.

If it's not 29-0 to force a sale, then thee are NBA owners willing to do business with a vile racist.

Alternatively, vote for a new franchise called the California Slippers. NBA & NBPA can agree to void player & coaches contracts with the Clippers and have them sign new ones with the Slippers. And in scheduling just "forget" to schedule the Clippers. And have the Lakers evict Sterling (poetic justice). He'd be left with a piece of paper and merchandise that no one wants to buy.

I don't mind him going away with another billion dollars, just as long as he goes away.

"So she can't bring black people to the game, but he can?"

Chyll Will, I would have thought Donald Sterling's lack of consistency was not one of his biggest vices.

[13] Hee-hee, me too! But I'm no authority on racists billionaires; my direct experience has often been with a far lower percentile >;)
