What we have now is a ban and fine, which means Sterling can still own the team, but is probably going to be forced to sell.
    I don't think Sterling will be able to keep the team and keep the stands filled, which would force the sale, or transfer to the family. Even with a transfer, the public would probably be against him because of either guilt by association, or wondering if the transfer was done to funnel money to his accounts without association directly to him.

Let's hear some speeches about their outrage for THOSE issues as well. Problem is there is nobody white to blame at the end of those speeches.
    Quite the opposite. It's distractions like this that keep the focus on being the victim, rather than that much-needed look in the mirror. It's the political lifeblood of the party in power.

    I don't care about Sterling because he's an icky old coot, but what he did comes nowhere near what Schott did.
    She was an awful human being too. It's one of those things, the league can only do so much legally, and it must be within their franchise contractual authority.

    I am sure that Yahoo will cover that in intimate detail many times, with lots of NSFW photos.

    As an aside, it'll be interesting in the NFL this year now that they've banned using the n-word on the field of play, and any other "insensitive" language.

    Soon, no one will say a word that's not required. Ever.

    The move comes after days of outrage at ugly words attributed to Sterling from a taped conversation with an ex-girlfriend.

    The comments, where the owner seemed to say he didn't want his much-younger girlfriend hanging out with Black people on Instagram or bringing them to games, were first by TMZ and then in another recording posted on the website Deadspin.


    The NBA had said it was unable to authenticate the tapes, but Sterling's wife told KABC-TV in Los Angeles that it was her husband on the recordings.

    At a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, Commissioner Silver said an investigation had confirmed that the voice on the tapes and the "hateful opinions voiced" were those of Sterling.

    Banned for life... great. Good riddance.

    2.5 million dollar fine? Not so sure about that one.

    His GF being photographed with Magic set the old dude off. There's much more to this story.

    Why do you want to use the N word. I really dont get this stuff, if Indians dont want to be called a certain name and Balck people dont want to be called certain names, and Republicnas hate certain names, why do you want to? I really dont care enough to worry about it, I would never use the words anyway. There are plent of words left.
