    Yeah, and if they boycotted the game, Sterling supporters would grill them for that too. To those who find nothing wrong with Sterling's comments, it's a lose-lose situation for how the players react, because whichever way they react, they're going to be criticized.

    Yes, and I read that article already. It's the only time I saw him labeled as a registered Republican. Did Bundy say that he was? And for a guy who doesn't even recognize the government (his words), it surprises me to think that he would even vote. He clearly detests politicians.

    I'll believe it when Bundy articulates it. Not that it matters anyway. Even a lot of Democrats detest the government. That isn't a Republican thing.

    What people say to their girlfriends in private settings isn't my business.

    Who are his "supporters"?

    Ya know? Take it up with the author.

    So you're essentially claiming the players are hypocrites because they won't forfeit a playoff game because their owner is an asshole. No, you apparently don't know "all about sports."

    Name the last time a team boycotted a game.

    Interesting.
    Uh, let's see, he lives in a very red part of Nevada. So yes, he's "probably" a Republican. I don't see why that's interesting.

    I hope you enjoy making excuses for Donald Sterling's abject racism and trying to make the thread all about his players instead of him.

    I changed the word "supporters" to "those who see nothing wrong with his comments" in the middle of my thought - pretty much anyone who doesn't think what he said is wrong or excuses his comments. I don't really care if it was in privacy, closet racists are still racists. He knew that his racism couldn't be made public because it would hurt his business, so he kept it private, and he got caught.

    I don't feel sorry for the man. Everyone has a right to say what they may, but that does not free them of the consequences.

    I know all about sports. This is a message board, Kobie, or didn't you know that? I'm voicing my opinion. Or is that against the rules?

    I never used the word hypocrite. You did.

    But at least they felt good about their message. And they will feel better when they deposit the big paychecks that mean old man gives them.
