    The real money is in the stadium itself. When a team changes hands, all the sponcerships change most times. No matter what, if the league takes the team, he will reap huge rewards.
    His family will end up with the team.

    People will buy those tickets that their predecessors pass on. True fans who love that team would only be hurting themselves if they stop going to the games to make some sort of point.

    Those who share certain belief systems with others tend to overestimate the degree to which others share them as well. It seems entirely normal to them from their subjective viewpoint, so it must be normal from an objective one as well.

    The idea of sponsors rushing to sign on because of his racism assumes a positive rather than negative quality to the racism, itself.

    Oh, no! A President who doesn't think America's a Christian nation! Whatever will we do!

    This nation was definitely founded for Christians, by Christians, with the goal of spreading our exceptionalism and our belief in Jesus!

IMO firing someone for being a racist is anti American and flies in the face of free speech.

    First, your position lacks logic and reason, if one wanted to really give it serious thought, your post is also intellectually dishonest.

    No one has punished these people for what they think, these people are facing the repercussions associated with the responsibility of the First Amendment.

    One person who makes multi-millions off of Blacks and minorities would like to have the right to tell another human being that they don't have the right to be friends with Black people. He has every right to say that, he doesn't have the right to force that view on anyone else.

    Further, this man's racism has been proven to be more than thoughts, he has a history of racist and discriminatory actions resulting in the harm to other races of people.

    The Blitz on Bundy had nothing to do with racism, it was about a mooching thief who has cheated the govt and citizens of millions of dollars over the course of twenty years.
    It only included racism when the man himself lamented if Black people didn't belong in fields picking cotton.

    He has the right to voice his opinion and society has the same right to respond.

    Because corporations exist to make money, not to make social statements. As sponsors drop off, new ones will come on board.

    You have a right to feel and believe however you like- just not to do and act however you want.
