Donald Sterling is possibly the worst person who owns a sports franchise.  And that's beating out some pretty strong competition.

I can't root for the Clippers because the thought of this racist slumlord piece of shiat holding the trophy is nauseating.

Ummm...that man is not sane.
 
2014-04-26 09:01:41 AM  
Well. Tell us how you really feel, racist rich guy.
 
2014-04-26 09:39:48 AM  
Wow. That was disturbing on many levels. Basically said "you can fark Magic Johnson (and whoever else) just don't take pictures with him or bring bring him to my games. Larry Bird is ok though." That guy is racist scum.

maybe I missed it if it was explained somewhere, but why was this recorded in the first place?  is she trying to set him up for a big divorce paycheck or something?  fly on the wall stuff can be interesting, but you have to ask why was the fly there in the first place.

They're not married. She recorded him to remind everyone that Sterling is a racist shiatbag. Does there really need to be another reason? Why is that what's important to you in this situation?

Because  question everything.  Swankywanky was following that mantra.  Unfortunately, when people question anything to do with racial issues, some other people have a knee-jerk reaction to it.

I don't care how it came to light. This isn't the first time this guy has done or said incredibly racist, shiatty things, and everyone needs to be reminded of that.

Just 5 years ago he paid a $2.7 million settlement for federal housing discrimination.

He made statements that he would like to have a Southern coach and poor black players on his team. 

He brought women into the locker room and paraded them around, telling them to, "Look at those beautiful black bodies," like he was a slave owner showing off his stock.

So no, I don't particularly care how this came to light. He's an embarrassment to the league, and people need to be aware of how much of a shiatheel he is.

I never said the lady is a saint, but focusing on her like that detail matters even in the slightest misses the real point here.

He set himself up. This isn't even close to the first time he's done something racist. See my other comment.

Knee-jerk? Are you aware of Donald Sterling's long, tawdry history of being a racist shiatheel?
 
2014-04-26 10:11:33 AM  
unedited version:

"You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want."   - "That's what you people do"

"...Don't put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me.  And don't bring him to my games." - "  You can F*ck him, Just make sure he wears a condom"

He is treating her like trash and a second class citizen.   Maybe she just got fed up and decided to record it.

/She should have just walked away , though.

Don Sterling's existence reminds me that Dan Snyder isn't the biggest shiat bag in team ownershipville.
 
2014-04-26 10:15:36 AM  
Um, so, how much will he be fined and how long will he be suspended.

/or is that for the players?
 
2014-04-26 10:16:59 AM  
i hope that when i'm a fat ugly old man, ill be rich enough to afford a hot young girlfriend like that.  i'll certainly be more respectful to her than this asshole is.

OtherLittleGuy: Um, so, how much will he be fined and how long will he be suspended.

Well they didn't do anything for all the other stuff he's done, so I don't really expect them to do anything about this either. New sheriff in town with Adam Silver, though, so we'll see. The thing that complicates this is that technically, as the commissioner, he works for the owners, so  it would probably take overwhelming support from the other owners for him to be able to do anything here.

Personally, I'd like to see the players refuse to play for him, but I know that won't happen. They knew about all the other shiatty stuff he had done before, and chose to play there anyway (well, the ones that weren't traded or drafted anyway). Or maybe they didn't. There seem to be several people in this thread that think this is the first time he ever did anything racist.

More like ends reinforce what we already knew and revives the conversation about why this guy is associated with a league where 80% of the players are black. The fact that so many of you guys seem to be unaware of his history as a blatant racist says to me that this wasn't a bad thing. And whether or not recording him was the right thing to do, that's completely moot. If you're going to dismiss the fact that he talked to this woman the way that he did just because you think she shouldn't have recorded him... then I don't even know what else to say.

If you said shiat you should own it. I don't care who it is to. If you say horrible shiatty things to your wife that doesn't some how make it better.

My Top 3 awful person list is probably

1. Sterling
2. Jeffrey Loria
3. Dan Snyder

My Top 3 "bad at owning teams" list goes:

1. James Dolan
2. Fred Wilpon
3. Dan Snyder

I'm not defending either of them.  I'm not a fan of gold diggers with ulterior motives or rich old deluded racists.  I think both types of people are pretty much trash.  Granted I couldn't load much of the recording(s) and didn't l didn't listen to it all, other than knowing they seemed to kinda try to make up for a fight they just had there isn't much if any context to the situation.  Not excusing  the crazy old guy, but I'm sure all of us have said some pretty stupid farked up stuff (ok maybe not as bad as that guy) when we've been hurt and or embarrassed.

Wilpon's bad, but he's not as bad as Dan Snyder.

I'd replace him with Nintendo.
