On the Sordid Donald Sterling Saga 2

I really don't have a problem with the NBA throwing the book at this asshole. But there does seem to be a double-standard. Ron Artest, a player, went into the stands and started beating people up. Latrell Sprewell, a player, strangled his coach. Both of these dudes only got a one year suspension. Is the NBA really saying that idiotic statements said in the privacy of your own home are a more serious offense than criminal acts of violence; assaults and batteries? That certainly does seem to be the case.

Good point Will. I'll have to check the specifics before commenting in any detail, but on first thought it would seem that is what the implication may be.

Ticket buyer's don't come to see the owner,they come to see the player's.

It would probably be best for everybody if the dude just faded away. Doubtful if he will, though.

I think that you just nailed it, Russ.
