They should suspend him indefinitely
That is what will most certainly can and will happen. What people have to understand is that now there is only so much can be done but first they have to let the league take action. The players also should be encouraged to play out their season. The real work begin in the offseason when the union and can start to put pressure on and the public can then begin to put pressure on team sponsors as well as every other sponsor or company does that business with the Clippers or Sterlings other ventures. Carmax,State....

i just want to know why everyone in the world is all of a sudden blowing a gasket over how racist DTS is when this was the tamest incident he's ever had. Where was this uproar when he:

used the N word

degraded mexicans

threw out a plantation/slave reference

this is like catching al capone on tax evasion.

It's the voyeurism of actually having the tape to listen to. The only thing that could make this more juicy for the media and their consumers is if it was video. Half of congress are probably screwing around on their wives, but seeing "Anthony's Wiener" all over TV for a month still gives me nightmares, and he didn't even cheat.

This sh*t was exaggerated to the brink just listened to the recording, nothing as bad as media is making it sound. This is ridiculous. That b**ch is just trying to get back at him cause he's suing her for something. I thought he said something really racist, but now that I heard the recording not really.....

It may not be his top 100 racist remarks, but hearing from the devil itself is lot more powerful than bunch of other voices.

"Maybe this crazy man who after 80 years of living and is still completely ignorant towards blacks will be understanding enough to sell his billion dollar empire because it's the right thing to do" - Actual crazy people

C'mon guys, the only chance Sterling isn't our owner is if the league pushes him out. He WILL NOT sell the team out of generosity towards the fans.

The players are caught between a rock and the deep blue sea. Boycotting the game would have been the stupidest thing in the world but some think they're weak for not doing it. What's going to happen as my learned bro' said above. all of our sponsors and possibly Prime Ticket's sponsors are long gone NOW. This is going to hit PT's bank roll. If TNT broadcasts games there may be a boycott as well. This will be in place till DTS is gone. Doc will probably leave. Possible or not the league has to TRY to force him to sell. It doesn't matter if it involves lawsuits, it's good PR.

But they also have to do diligence and be 100% sure it's DTS's voice. I'm sure it is but we have to prove it.

The way I see it that will affect long term is stop attending the games. The more he lose money, the more he is inclined to sell the team.

DTS is not crazy, he's a self made millionaire and they are rarely nice people. Bill Gates comes to mind. He's not ignorant at all. In his racist comments in the past he knew what he was doing but was aware the he was untouchable. The only way he will sell is if we hit the right button and nobody knows what it is. Play Dirty.

Racism is dying but not dead and he is not alone. Sorry for the politics but SOME Tea Party people have made pictures of Obama as an ape etc. There are the militia guys who believe in slavery. To dismiss them as crazy is a dangerous thing. People dismissed Hitler as crazy benign guy.

Attending games doesn't mean much. Prime Ticket losing Kia and State Farm does and that's going to happen. There could be a boycott of all NBA sponsors

You know Chris Paul is steaming from this when the Kia ball hits everything will get worse. Paul took pride in his state farm promotion.

I don't think his money is affected. The commercials will still run nationally, but they won't run at clipper games. Unless he gets money from them running at clipper games, I don't see how this affects him. They said they will continue to have a relationship with Chris, just not Clippers.

Its offensive what the hell are you people smoking. If we as people both new this girl Sterling knew should you be accepted at the game because your white and me being kicked because I'm black. Sterling has always been an ass but to bring the level of crap to the front of our faces to the world is sick.

Did you even listen to the damn recording? He said nothing of black people not being allowed in to the games, she was milking the heck out of him, on that recording, and he said multiple times he has no problems with black people, he just didn't want her to ASSOCIATE with them, and for HER not to bring them to his games. Furthermore he says he has no problems with minorities and he loves black people.

Are you sure about this? Because the commercials I have seen have

Chris Paul with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Seems like they will have to pull all the commercials that have Chris Paul in them.

Let me have what you are smoking.

He loves black people, but doesn't want her to bring "Black People to his games".

He loves black people, but doesn't want her to associate with them?

He loves black people, but doesn't want them living in his apartments?

Wow if that is the way he treats people he "loves" hates to see

what he does to his "Enemies".

How in the hell can you love black people and not want someone you "care" about to associate them or bring them to games. He did not say a particular black person he said black people. This type of view s me.

The first one and the diner one have Clippers jerseys in them. The others with his kid, and about the grandfathers do not. I don't know, but I would think those two would be pulled but the others have no clipper logo in them.

We'll see.

Such a shame.

So let me get this right - these millionaire players with TONS of influence decide the best way they can "protest" is by wearing black socks and making a few changes in their wardrobe? if they TRULY were genuine in their intention, you would think they would man up and joint boycott. VERY, very weak on their part. I'm sure those in the past that endured/struggled to overcome racial equality (and give them the opportunity to be where they are) really appreciate their efforts. they're all too concerned with personal consequences instead of taking a stand.

please.

for those that respond with "the players shouldn't be punished" - its not about being punished, its about personal sacrifice.

Why should they be the only ones to sacrifice? IMO, every team should refuse to play until Sterling is gone.

Hell, I say stretch it into next season if that's what it takes. If Sterling won't give up the team willingly, don't give him a product to sell.

This is really getting out of hand, I can only imagine if the punishment isn't what every player, coach, owner or fans want the outcome to be.

Sterling needs to for once do the right thing and step down as owner or sell the team, its the only way any of us would be happy.

The grandfather ones have them fighting over a clipper ship at the end.

I doubt state farm wants to have to worry about which ones they can use or not.

definitely agree. IMO, It just doesn't affect our Clips, it affects the entire league. From what I saw so far, Michael Jordan was the only one to voice his opinion as owner. How does that make the rest of the owners look, especially them being white? From that, how would the players actually see their owners. A full league boycott would make the biggest impact.

More sponsors have pulled out of the Clippers. Add Kia and Virgin America to the growing list.

My guess that while they know what they want to do now, they have to line everything up legally and take care of the little details to make sure that when they do lay the hammer down, Sterling and his lawyers can't come back and fight it, drawing it out longer.

like I said in another thread, I think this can be a strong means/strategy to force DTS hand in selling.

I just had a chance to hear the actual audio (not just snippets).

Clearly she's trying to bait him, but he's clearly ignorant and dumb. Seems like he's trying to say it's all about his religion, not a personal bias/hate against minorities. Especially when he mentions the 'black Jews' in Israel.

I've been personally begging for DTS to sell the team for most my time as a fan. It was always a major reason why we struggled, and than had a stigma that stuck, even over the past few years of success. Now this just rips my heart out. Yeah, the only way we can get airtime on sports radio is when there's a major scandal...not when we're the best team in the city, and one of the best in the leave (not to mention best Clipper team ever).

Anyone else find it odd that there's been NO mention/discussion that DTS has a girlfriend AND a wife? Maybe it's just what the super rich do, just find it strange it's never been brought up.

I was half hoping the gf would keep pushing him for answers and prompt a cardiac arrest, but than there's no justice aside from the family inheriting the team.

This really sucks......

The wife and him were supposed to be separated or getting divorced. However she made a statement against him Sunday but then later yesterday is seen out to dinner with Sterling and said he is not racist.All very strange.

Sounds like our fans are showing support, according to Doc he said that "since the past 10 hours since landing LA, the fans been great and we need them."

The biggest action would be that ALL playoff games cease then. Not just the clippers, but all those players who dont' think clipper players did enough. Lebron, Lamarcus, everybody. That would make a huge statement to the NBA.

His wife is basically divorced from him only they didn't divorce since it would be too much of a pain to divide the assets and it would lead to problems concerning keeping the Clippers team.
