    Plenty of lefties on this thread including myself have made it clear that Sterling's privacy was invaded and that there are black players like Barkley who said racist things as well...It's just that we don't feel real sorry for the miserable **** Sterling.

    Of course that would require actually you reading the thread to know what was said, as opposed to your usual open mouth spew nonsense.

    That's the name of the game. Everyone plays it, and everyone has their eyes on the prize.

    I never said they can't ban a person. I said that can't ban anyone they want to ban. They can ban a person - a person who gives them cause to do so.

    It was the radio audience that started boycotting stations that played their music and stopped buying their material. Now if the same thing happens with Clippers fans and they stop buying tickets and merchandise, then it can be comparable. Until then... someone is talking from planet Uranus.

    There's somerhing wrong with that idea, too. Free speech is a civil right.

    Trust me, all of you do it. You just think you're above it, when you're not.
    I've never done it, my friend.

    I support the right for the Dixie Chicks to say what they said. Now does that mean their consumers have no choice? What happened to the Dixie Chicks was a decision by music lovers. Not some high and mighty music executive. At this point, it is some high and mighty executive making the decision. What is the sales changes from Clippers fans?

    Do you really think these situations are comparable at this point?

    The Dixie Chicks also intentionally did this in a public forum, rather than a released taping. Sterling rightfully assumed he was having a private conversation.
