    1750Texan is probably right. If I'm not mistaken, the National Hockey League is the only major professional sports that has teams relying to a large extent on arena gate and merchandise to generate their profit margins. The other leagues rely heavily on television revenue. The NHL recently signed a major TV deal with a Canadian cable giant which will put them in the same boat as the other leagues going forward. TV and the various other means of "airing" the product is what drives profit in major league sports these days.

    I read it wrong.

    TV revenue is where the bulk of pretty much every sport comes from.

    Greetings, CJ.

    Sad, but apparently true! Nobody cares about old white men that have no money! They go through life ignored by both liberal's and gold-diggers from both parties, bless their hearts!

    I'll have to start a support group - I'm sure some good liberal in government will give me a grant to get the thing started, don't you think?

    And Good Evening Lady P. - a piss-poor rainy, windy day here today and looks like we have a forecast for rain for the next week or so - those April showers are apparently going to bring May showers!

    No, he is an asshole. but you better start learning to stand up for assholes and their rights if you hope to hold onto your own. What happened to Sterling today was over the top. The next victim may be you.

    Sterling's "rights" did not enter into the equation at all. He was punished according to the bylaws that he agreed to when he became an NBA owner. The government didn't sanction Sterling. If it had, then you could start complaining about "rights."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Al Davis very much did prove the NFL wrong in who owns the Raiders franchise. I don't know if that would apply to the Clippers and Sterling if he chose to push back or not. He would have grounds to push back too, as this wasn't a public statement but a private conversation that was recorded without his knowledge you get that in a courtroom with a jury and good lawyer Sterling could give the NBA merry hell. I am interested to know if he is going to fight back or not. So far its been a one sided pounding. He didn't become a billionaire by being a wimp.
