    And you could be forced into a sale of your franchise if you broke any clause of the contract you signed when you purchased the franchise.

    Nobody "owns" them.
    They work for a business under contract.

    Re: Would you vote to take the Clippers from Donald Sterling?

    If I were in a position to vote,I would know much more about the man than I do now. Since I rely so heavily on my own reactions rather than relying on those of others,my vote would probably be predicated on my intereactions with the man. Presumably,we would have met at an owners meeting, and so I would have had the opportunity to see for myself.

    Knowing what I actually know, I wouldn't vote one way or the other.

    The Clippers is a brand, a franchise of the NBA....it is not "people" or a person.

    Stop conflating what the franchise is.

    So nobody owns the rights to the franchise, which makes a profit. Who is getting the profit? I'm not.

    If he doesn't own the franchise, who does?

    I already know that. The question was would we vote yes or no. My answer was no.

    Too much salt on the fries or a change to the "special sauce" and you are out of business...
    In NBA franchises, say something racist and it is the same...you are out of business if you don't comply with the franchise rules...
    It's not so different.

    Based on what? If the assumption is that you are another Team owner (who gets to vote), what basis would you have for not voting for the stripping of ownership rights of DS?

    Owning rights to a franchise and owning people are two different things.
