    You are laughably wrong. Again.

    One of the team owners saying something horribly racist is "proof" that the enterprise itself is "racist"? Who, exactly, is the NBA as a whole "racist" against?

    The first amendment doesn't protect you from consequences....unless the government takes it his rights are intact.

    However, the NBA can't just take the team away. They can lean on him to sell and generally make his life miserable, but just seizing the team isn't an option. Sharpton's an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about.
    I get that, and I agree, Sharpton is much more prone to argue that the most dramatic solution to the problem is the one that is always available, even when it's not.

    By the way, what's the statute of limitations on how long you guys are going to continue to flog Trayvon Martin's corpse for political points?



    Says the guy who called the NBA "racist" in the first few posts of the thread.



    Cute how you put "elected" in quotes.
    Kobie we do agree on something it seems. I know you are not impressed.

    But I do have just one question. Was Trayvon being racist at that time during that incident? Was trayvon attacking because he was racist and had hatred for the white cracker?
    Between the two only one made racist comments.

    my problem with most of this is how everyone is blind to the fact that black people are just as racist as white people.

    Can just steal the guys property and take the team away. Fans are free to stop going to their games and the talent is free to stop signing contracts with the team... But you can't just steal from the guy.

    Well, I wasn't there, so I don't know if Trayvon attacked because he was "being racist." If I had to guess, I'd say he attacked because he felt threatened because he was being followed.

    That's all I'm saying about Trayvon Martin, since I refuse to get into another Martin/Zimmerman pissing match. Trayvon Martin has been dead for more than two years; it's time the ceaseless flogging of his corpse stopped.

    They can potentially suspend him, if I am lead correctly. They can't force the man to sell, but they can put pressure on him, and many factions of the league, its hall of famers, and the fans can put as much pressure as they want on the guy. The demand that he should not be there anymore is perfectly within reason.

    were his comments racist? That is a matter of publicly known fact eh did say them.

    I'm sure they can suspend him. Marge Schott was suspended, as was Steinbrenner (if I recall correctly). But, that is different then saying he should lose his franchise. people being offended does not negate property rights.
