    If organizations acted every time someone settled out of court, innocent people (for the most part) would be harmed. Setting such a precedence is absurd.

    A bit much. The monetary fine would have been sufficient, public pressure would have taken care of the rest without the league having to set a precedent. After all it may have to follow with a star player that says something stupid or racist. Examples abound already where this standard could have been pressed.

    And who, exactly, is going to make me pay a $2.5 million dollar fine? The NBA?

    I do remember that they used a Marine V-22 Osprey to transport a bunch of Obama's basketballs from the White House to Martha's Vineyard.

    Geez.
    Yeah that's relevant to the problem. That'll adjust the scales of justice to an acceptable level. It'll be good to know that equilibrium has been satisfied and a judge is still able to decide that something never happened.

    Either you didn't understand me properly, or I didn't understand you. Either way, I suspect we are talking past each other.
