Washington, DC's NFL Team Going Without a Nickname for Now
"One NFL known We all heard that the Washington NFL team. Ah, abandon their nickname after all these years and all the political pressure Ah, things came together here in 2020 and they decided to move on from their nickname I moved on from me years ago. And I may have mistake once or twice over the last four or five years. Use that nickname, but generally I referred to them as Washington NFL team with Washington football team. That's what they're going to go with here in 2020 It will be known as the Lion Ashington football team. This to me is terrible planning in terrible management and anybody who follows sports. It all knows that Daniel Snyder's been one of the words stoners in sports. Over the last 10 years. You know you got Donald Sterling. He's out of the embassy. There are others that come to mind. But he's been terrible. And there have been protests for years and years and years, And you would think someone around Snyder Or even Daniel Snyder. You think you know, At some point we should have a plan B because at some point something's gonna happen in the world and we're going to be forced to drop our nickname even though he was adamant he never would. But here we are. And they didn't have a plan B. Absolutely amazing to me. Now, Chris, you brought up a great point. I think it's worth giving you a ton of credit for this. I'm going to put out branded merchandise. You know, they will. That will just say Washington football team. And they're probably going to sell a ton of it. And that stuff will be collector's items when they settle on a new nickname, so One way or another. NFL teams figure out a way to make money and they're probably going to make a money or make money. I'm just being called Washington football team what their helmets will look like What Mogo they use. I have no idea. This is just This is really interesting.

He'll be asking the questions later on for rank him tonight. At Jarvis. The 90 So This is a fascinating story to me in a lot of ways, and you know it. Certainly it's certainly rooted in some controversy, so Georgia Senator Kelly Law firm. Who's had plenty of her own issues and things going on. Is co owner of the Atlanta Dream, and she wrote a letter to W. N B. A commissioner Cathy Engelbert to express her opposition to things such as the Black Lives matter Movement that the WN ba Is going to embrace came, he said. I adamantly opposed the black lives matter. Political movement, which has advocated for the defunding of police called for the removal of Jesus from churches in the disruption of the nuclear family structure. Harbored anti Semitic views and promoted violence and destruction across the country, I believe is totally misaligned with the values and goals off the WN BA and the Atlanta dream where we support, tolerance and inclusion, inclusion. He also told Engelbart, the commissioner that she was quote, incredibly disappointed to read about efforts to insert a political platform into the league and unquote. The truth is, we need less not more politics and sports in a time when polarizing politics. Is as divisive is ever sports has the power to be a unifying antidote. And now more than ever, we should be united in our goal to remove politics from sports. Now she's advocating for putting an American flag on jerseys. A Zakes Haman sense solution. Um Now, Obviously, this has stirred the Hornets nest. Big time, Okay? There is a bigger overriding question to all of this. Okay, So the bigger overriding question is Because people don't like to hear this is is she entitled to her opinion? Right, wrong or indifferent When you agree with her, don't agree with her. Is she entitled to have her opinion? Now. I do have to laugh on on lots of different things. Okay, um One is. People immediately went to the Donald Sterling. She's she should be removed from the W because there's a movement now you know your rings. The players you're being, you know, Twitter verse, of course, but you gotta be removed as an owner. So few things, okay? One is Did any of you all know that she was an owner that she's co owner? By the way off the Atlanta dream? Did anybody even know that before today? Or yesterday. Whatever this story came out, if you say yes, you're lying. Because First of all, she's not been involved in day to day activities since she became a U. S. Senator. She's co owner. Jarvis, Do you know how long she's been an owner of the Atlanta dream? Do you know off the top of your head? How long without looking up? I'm just asking. You have top again because I know you know when she took over ownership. 2011. Franchise only been around since 2008. She took over ownership in 2011 with think your name is Cathy Brock, I think is her partner. That's in this. She's had the team since 2011. Didn't have you know that? The answer's No. You didn't know that. Okay, Because there's been no stories. There's been no angst. There's been no big controversies in things like that. Now. Did she say some dopey things course. You know why? Because she's a politician pandering to an electorate because she's up for re election. So there are some dopey things. But she's not Donald Sterling, either. Okay, That's not fair. Donald Sterling has a decorated history. Even the federal government sued Donald Sterling for his You know? Landlord practices and the types of attendants he would hire, famously where he was where he said stuff like he'd rather just rent to Korean people because they just pay the rent. And don't say nothing. And that black people bring filth and vermin in. So he has a long history of saying direct things. And by the way, if you think Donald Stern is a racist, just toward black people, then you're living in a in under a rock because he don't like anybody. Isn't anybody of any kind of color persuasion outside of him. So again, It's an easy thing in today's society that we always throw the word racist around, Okay, but she did not say anything about I don't like black people. I don't want them on my team. This then the other She spoke specifically about the movement. Now again, I will say you can agree with her. Disagree with her. I don't really care. I could truthfully care less what your opinion is of her opinion about things. The question is, Does she have a right to have that opinion because people want her thrown out of the league? And my question is why? Because she doesn't agree with you. Because she doesn't have the same exact value. Again. Did she say some dopey things? Yeah. I don't think we need to worry about an American flag on uniforms and some of these things. But I promise you that she's not the only person that doesn't agree with the Black lives matter Movement. And some of the things that they represent..

Spike Lee and James Dolan are having a silly feud over which MSG entrance Lee can use
"Area obviously the fallout continues on from Spike Lee having to sort of be re routed or potentially routed from the entrance he's been in all these years and it upset him greatly so we went on first take and then the next the next released a statement saying it's laughable that he's playing the victim card and actually posted footage of the VIP entrance and then a touching of hands in some way shape or form with Knicks owner James Dolan and Spike Lee as he was upset about he could use the app is used for twenty four years and about how you feel about that part of it which I understand if the Knicks are trying to avoid that I get that it was handled clumsily I think that's an easy way to say all of this correct yes it was handled in a way that seemed almost designed to draw attention to it yeah after after by the weight Leon rose as the team present the first came with him they beat the rockets right the Knicks are not a good team and they beat a good team and yet this became the story so obviously someone having an issue with James Dorn is a nothing new but be it reminded us of someone else who very recently had a very public issue with that is a square garden and James Dorn that'll be Charles Oakley who was escorted out of the building by executing was told in twenty seventeen by James Dorn you'll never get into MSG again even if you buy a ticket so of course we were gonna have Charles Oakley on the show this morning to talk about what he thought of the Spike Lee situation of what is going on under James Jones ownership and let's just say Charles did not hold back it is a plantation whether it's good bad people won't talk about is real bad over there someone may have been but I think it was twenty years old ten million dollars in new quick about it because though that bill what what is this mail problem bottle control you so much of a control freak then he heard the whole NBA them all immediately this guy hit land every month or every other week with something that don't have many women together with individual people life we should be going to live with them days will be cold with this control freak in all this that if the court would be in the business you have to have people to work for you so you have to go with people to succeed in life you got into trouble operating business you need people to work he was in distress are working every day wow I mean he listen it was a hell of an interview no doubt about it and and and I guess he he kind of gave an answer by saying that he thinks in all honesty the league should take the franchise away from him but that's not gonna happen but he can he compare him to Donald sterling he said because we've pointed out this on numerous occasions that none of this changes while James Dorn is the owner we don't expect some metamorphosis from him and his point was this is so bad for the lead we saw another very different instance but he pointed out the comparison with Donald sterling saying the league stepped in then he believes the league should step in now I I just don't see them doing that and just like we all don't see no matter who the coaches the GM is the president is good likely on rose that it doesn't matter because players are not you if you're gonna build a team what what Charles Oakley said you're not the building through the draft when you draft somebody to come there because big time free agents are not coming to play for the Knicks yeah what happened this past summer they cleared all the cap space in two point prime free agents did they just didn't go to the next they went to the nets and Stephen A. Smith is in on this as well basically saying the culture of the next sadly is still the culture now I can't he can't he can't help the Knicks win and winning you will accept already and still make the culture that you can get that part the only expense but the only person that can fix this culture change though James Dolan have stopped thank hi guys that that's in Charles Oakley brought that I mean you you you you're in New York you have to have a little bit of a tougher widely I mean okay we can bring that up what do you think that's going to happen if we don't we don't there's no chance that we think that's going to happen this guy owns the most or the franchise won the most in all the NBA one fifth in all of sports right in that area four point six billion dollars he is not as we talk about money should make you treat people assert what you treat people but this guy ain't changing no well that's I guess that's the issue and all this right is you look at it and say unless someone else does step in James Dorn is gonna own this team for as long as he wants a life is about what's incentivized writing his behavior based on the numbers that you just said has been incentivized it is been shown Hey this is a lucrative for you it may not win you basketball games but it's going to make you money you're gonna get to feel important and do all the things that come along with owning the Nixon owning Madison Square Garden and yada yada yada on down the list but what can we count on until that is an endless loop of things like this what an endless loop of Fruita futility so much so that if the Knicks are other good it's going to be completely on accident yeah yeah it's going to be just because within the body of a long period of time a broken clock is right twice a day

NBA players weather was being fair to African Americans and making sure they he was so fiercely supported in the other the other example I always give is magic listen Magic Johnson was HIV positive none of us understood it in fact even urban himself when he right before he was a how to go on stage to tell everybody this is what happened to be internal on and once in one rose in his agent months Adam you know what you're gonna say something you know what one of just going to tell them I'm just gonna tell my have aids and lan said home urgent you don't have H. you have the virus that causes age I was in seventh grade or something like that right in our sole so none of us understood the severity and and David stern was up late at night Colleen medical experts all over the world to try to stay one step ahead so he could understand this crisis that he was dealing with and of course you know when Irving retired the first time and then came back and retired the second time and then you wanted to come back when you want to come back the first time that's when everybody starts it will win and I the all star game Jackie right right right we also right but that was that was accepted because that deck didn't count no one was going to you know that no one was going to play too hard that was sort of thing is a one time thing will will and you know that was the Dream Team but then when he wanted to come back following that Brian that's when you started to hear the complaints wait a minute I don't want to risk my life there was and their owners saying Hey I am not in support of this I don't want to do this and and what David stern told was all right listen I'm just gonna tell you right now if we don't do this first of all you can expect a lawsuit and we need that kind of bad publicity the we won't let it H. I. V. person and then the second thing and this was the hammer this is the hammer David stern news and I don't think this is been reported very widely was widely was this okay if you're not going to let him in and we're gonna have mandatory HIV testing for everybody in the NBA and are you all sure that you don't have anybody on your roster that's HIV positive because I'm not sure and this is the kind of and he just he was going to do the right thing by Irvine not because he loved Ervin Johnson because you did because it was the right thing to do and those are the moments when I admire him the most when even though there was I mean his legacy was at stake there imagine if that had gone badly in the attic on rock and remember we know now all about HIV that is treatable that you can live a full life with it but you can't you can't get it from exchanging blind or or I mean exchanging you know some live or or but you know blood if you you know all these things that all these scary things that back then in that climate because I lived it everyone thought will if I get near him and hugs him I might get aids we have aids but this but David store was one step ahead and he was telling everybody you bet I'm you know I'm going to fight this fight and if you aren't willing to I'm warning you these are the things that could happen and now I mean Magic Johnson told me flat out he gave me my life back he saved my life that's what I've been told me and I believe on to saying Wednesday he was devastated quote David star was such a history maker when I announced in nineteen ninety one that I had HIV people thought they could get the virus from shaking my hand when David allowed me to play in the nineteen ninety two all star game in Orlando and play for the Dream Team we were able to change the world David stern died Wednesday at the age of
LeBron James continues fight against NCAA, announcing support of 'Fair Pay to Play' Act
"College sports yes you're listening to caspian los angeles lebron james has this thing called the shop right this show on HBO and gavin newsom the governor of california has been talking about newsome awesome was a baseball player at santa clara yes so he knows that they monetize student athletes all the time so you do you have this i do okay this was newsome with lebron maverick carter on the uninterrupted deciding whether or not to sign a bill that would allow college athletes to be able to monetize their name and likeness and to be able to make endorsements our cash here's gavin newsom i don't want to say this is checkmate this i don't want to say this checkmate but this is a major problem for them to be brought the maverick carter put pen to paper right now what is going to change and what's it gonna do it's going to initiate initiate dozens of other states introduced similar legislation and it's going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest finally of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions now we're rebalancing that power arrangement let's do it let's do all right so he actually signs the bill on tv cowboy this this is this is number one reason reason why we've created this platform to be able to have moments like this where we got the governor of california signing a bill to allow athletes in college in here's a little bit more from lebron sure i don't wanna say this house opinion about it went off to any one of these big time colleges where i'm pretty much that twenty-three jersey would've sold all over the place without my name on the bag but everybody would have known the likeness my body would have been on the NCAA basketball game two thousand and four and the sosthene center would have been sold ought every single night there so coming from the this me and my mom we didn't have anything we wouldn't have been able to benefit at all from it and the university of neighbor to capitalize on everything that i would have been for that year or two or whatever so understand and with those kids are going through i feel for those who've mcguire that's wild personal in that obviously was today at training camp mason and orland ESPN LA lebron james there you heard from gavin newsom to me this is the silver bullet solution to paying college college athletes it is well first of all let's make a point here though this particular bill does not authorize colleges colleges to pay athletes what it allows is for them to make money off of their name and outside agent and to be able to be due to endorse somebody or something like to endorse nike if you're a top-flight athlete and this to me is a very fair way to deal with compensating college athletes because those athletes with a high profile will make a bunch of money those athletes without a high profile won't necessarily make anything so to me this makes perfect and complete sense if you are as he said lebron james at the collegiate level last year if you were zion williamson you could have been a nike endorser by the time you were a freshman at duke and it would have been totally okay the biggest stars would make the biggest money and and that's the way college sports should move forward this is insanely overdo it should've happened a long time ago ed o'bannon was in the room and ed o'bannon was the guy hi who originally filed a lawsuit against these guys because he was the face of a video game that made millions of dollars and he got zero from it when when he when the national championship at UCLA the NCAA which if you listen to the show you know i think a bunch of phonies and i wish the whole organization organization will go away but the NCAA makes billions with a b. often these kids billions and as brand points tout the kids often in the case of of some of these inner city kids come from poor households come from single parent households could really use a little bit of what all this money that they're making and and let's make no mistake here when lebron stock would not allow us ed oh man manning is an example when obama was at UCLA they sold a number thirty one UCLA basketball jersey in the student store that sold out as fast as they can get it in their UCLA was ranked number one in the country ed o'bannon wore number thirty one and they were all wearing it at the games how do you make the argument that that's not his name and likeness of course it's his name and likeness and if he is being marketed and sold like that he's entitled to a percentage uh of the prophets and the funny thing was mace they wouldn't put his name on the back so his actual jersey would say o'bannon by the students store would just be number thirty you're just get around paying him and lebron's one hundred percent right yep that that this is something that that should happen a long time ago i'm glad that gavin newsom here's some stake in the lead on this and your next thing's going to be well the NCAA is threatening to keep teams from california out of let's say the college football the playoffs are out of the NCAA tournament the way this bill was written first of all it doesn't come into effect till twenty two twenty three correct so nobody that's a student now is going to benefit from it it's it's gonna start in twenty twenty three and they've written the bill in a way that the NCAA can't do that can't can't single them out that's how they've prepared the bill how's that we'll read it read the LA times article today it explains it in detail they've written the bill which basically soclean prohibits anyone from in indemnified these kids from being ruled eligible for this for this specific so campaign NCWA keep a school out if a player is making money i don't think they can well that's what that's what the NC double a. threatened has threatened to do but the way this is written is that it would make it illegal for them to i would compare to the donald sterling case donald sterling when he sued the the NBA his shelly had already indemnified the the sterling's from being able to so he was an essence ensuing himself off the NCAA if you read the times article today it lays out in detail how the NCAA can try they can try and and do this but the way the bill has been written is it would not threaten their eligibility now the NCAA rules they try and change the rules but andrew how they're going to do it with new awesome i think this is going to it's going to force the other states to what is it going to go on like i i can imagine a world where if california's by itself and california schools i would imagine since he NCW becoming an advantage owns the college football playoff and runs the NC double a. tournament i can imagine them being excluded however this bill is now picking up steam in south carolina it's which would affect clemson it's picking up the contrary very to you know dabo sweeney who says the day college athletes get paid he's gonna walk away so this guy with one hundred million dollars guaranteed state of new york is now pushing this legislation nation i think the reason why twenty twenty three why in five years this goes into effect is to allow other states to catch up to the state of california when you're which by the way other states are always catching up to the state of california right well think about it if the other states don't follow suit it gives the the state of california a tremendous advantage in recruiting and other stuff they have to follow suit or their kneecapping their own teams is the the interesting thing to me is that so many people at the NCAA we are now trying to say no no no this this is a bad thing it's a bad thing because of course they're going to say that it puts them out of business it takes money out of their pocket but you know what you watch all the conferences are gonna come out and they're going to say they're disappointed the twelve does say they're disappointed in the past passage of SP SP to a six believes it will have a significant negative consequence for our student athletes and broader universities in california well of course they're going to say that larry scott by the way makes five point three million in dollars per year and he's not good at his job now he's terrible terrible it is a job okay so the bill and it was the person who brought it to the due to the floor was a state senator named nancy skinner she's a democrat out of berkeley and here's what i was talking about with you before present sound too liberal prohibits hits the NCAA from barring a university from competition if it's athletes are compensated the university of california system the california l. a. -fornia state university schools stamford in USC all opposed the bill saying they feared it would increase costs to ensure compliance with the law and lead defines or expulsion but the bill specifically prohibits the from barring university from doing that so let's see how it all plays out now he's newsom said that that presidents and boosters urged him to veto the bill let he felt strongly the state needed to address the racial gender and economic injustices justices that exists now in college good firm decision absolutely the right thing let's see where it goes
"donald sterling" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"The Badoit intuitions big party book and got me thinking you didn't put this in there but a kind of read between the lines with it I think all of us have watched so many. TV's and movies that we've been conditioned to think certain people act certain ways especially those law and order and CSI type shows and it's like you go to see the person whoever's playing the possible suspect has like four moves basically and you Kinda have to guess with those four moves and as you point out I would like the man in acts thing she she fit the profile if it was the law and order episode of ally bet she did it. I bet she's the one which is how the Italian please sexually active yeah. No she did it. She did it. I'm using by intuition here and they just convince themselves that they did it. But how much do you think like pop culture plays. I got it right so I think in the book where I take an episode of friends and I had you know the psychologists who are experts in what's called facts which is a a a notation system for identifying and registering all the expressions that your face can make so they've quote what is like. I forgot what the numbers a hundred expressions your face could make and they've got a number for each one so they can look at what you do with the facts as you look at a two minute stretch stretch of of friends and you can know tate every expression of goes across the face of the severe brow furrows. It's like F- to Action Unit one is where the inner you're part of your eyebrow goes up which is what you which is a sign of distress yet right so that's a you one and then seductive to memorize all these little codes for face sayers to master Astra faxes like really really hard to do yeah but I found a fax person and I sent her two minutes of friends episode and said do a fax analysis of every expression made by the people on friends and then I and then we went through it together and we said okay does eat does the expression on their face match their internal emotional state so if joey there's a scene where Joey is angry does fate does his face show anger according to the classic an absolutely every instance the facial expressions of the actors perfectly matched their internal emotional states which is why you can watch an insanely complicated episode of friends with the sound off and know what happened yeah. I don't need to know you know that Monica is upset and you know that Ross's perplexed and the JOE is dumb because their faces perfectly show thing if you watch a lot of friends a lot of TV where actors who are trained in this what's called transparency they are trained to perfectly represent their emotional states interfaces. You think I think that's the way the world works but in fact that's not the way the world works if I were to reach across the Hebrew right now and punch you in the face right which would be both surprising zing and then angering for you. I'd I'd use of safe word. Probably you would use a huge you. You would think your face would show surprise in an anchor yeah how they probably wouldn't you probably you face might not show anything at all. I would think you'd explain why you did it at the part of the podcast test the timing I have cooked this up. You know you the French the French oh go ahead. I'm sorry no no that's one of the many ways in which you know what's the great example of this is Kawhi is drafted by the by doughnuts. Seattle is considering drafting right they bring them into the room and I forgot who the GM GM was at the time of just before they moved to o'casey deal Oklahoma and they bring quiet and Kawhi is sweating through his suit and the GM misquoted you know the story now g is fantastic stories as they weren't in Seattle anymore into even thought that whoever KC maybe it was okay CMU whatever it was there was a team that could have Kawhi Yep that was hiring the draft and they interview him and he's sweating through his suit and the GM says at the time we don't want him because we want someone who's cool under pressure of course and collided has like no heartbeat so what that guy was doing was he was making an what's called a transparency assumption. He was assumed that if is showing signs of nervousness what I consider to be signs of nervousness in my presence then he's nervous and not only that that that represents a kind of stable trade of his now could have been hot the suit could have been ill-fitting only could have been nervous respite may be quiet a kind of guy who's only nervous when he's talking to a middle aged white guy on the day before the draft ray so that's a classic mistake we make is that we jumped to all kinds of conclusions is based on some so the religion of that is there's a million hours of tape of quite plain basketball. You don't have to meet the man and don't meet them. What what's euro blink yeah which is like the cousin of this? Maybe even the brother blankets like I re- seconds you you come up with their thing. This is like now I'm spending time with this person in in that's almost grew me up. It's your better with the blink and blink is like a great way with with basketball. I'm in or out with intense x yes. We'll take sometimes I'll look at. Somebody's bothering him out well. There's a so there's a difference. There is certain certain kinds of things that I think are you can pick up in net for particularly. If you're an expert you can get the gestalt of somebody very quickly yet but I'm talking about much more yeah. This is the nuance cousin of it yeah national like you're famous thing about that she said a number of occasions about Greg Oden. You just have watched watch the way he walked. Yeah just realize he can't play by animals like that to you. South finalists like the guy's twenty. Three's running that already. That's not good yeah. I worry about Yokich package with this by the way really yeah. I think he runs heavy at the key has a lot of weight amid doubts because I love watching him. I fear with him. There's some number number where if the if NBA players get over a certain weight it starts to get a little dicey her two hundred and sixty pounds something like that is nearest bonus. Bonus was the elder yeah who was very similar body. Now he's SA- bonus he other one is just his son. Bonus gets to be so bonus bonus but he he had all those millions of surgeries yeah. He ended his career still a very good player but just never moved well no but if you saw the clips in the eighties yes you know looks like oh he's. He looks like David Robinson. Yeah yeah the transparency thing. I thought it was interesting with the friends. 'cause I pictured you watching aw twenty seasons of friends trying to find the perfect two minutes but then I realize no he's way too smart. He probably picked three episodes. I have watched a lot of friends in my life I have but I mean when you're actually researched yet I I did actually it was an idea whose enjoyable to come up with a good if you wanted to stretch of a particularly difficult with funny but friends is the plots are so insanely complicated and yet we they're transparent. Friends was a was a son slash daughter of the sitcoms that I grew up with the seventies. Three's company was the ultimate one where it's like misunderstanding. Yeah I saw you with with that girl at the bar. Oh wait a second. That's your sister looked like your arm was around her mad. Oh and then at the end it all turns out now and they just friends took that to another level but we re talking about but the transparency of the actors that's one of the reasons in my opinion. None of them were able to translate intellect massive movie stars Aniston probably came the closest to you. It's not like Aniston was getting nominated for various academy words or things like that was because they were so big on that show and they had a lot of eye-bulging and mugging and is exaggerated. Whatever and it's it's just tougher to do that? India move is that's why Jennifer Aniston. She said the most success in like Sandler movies you know where she was because those sandler movies are Kinda just like that. They're like extended friends universes by which was so good. I'm just GONNA say. Sometimes I watch 'cause I'm always fascinated by studio. Shows shows especially 'cause I've been on one If you mute a studio show you can learn everything about the show without hearing what they're talking about by the body language how engaged people are the looks on faces. Do they seem in the reason. I know this because the second year I was on countdown which it was not a happy second season it was on in a bar and they were rerunning it and it was was that or they are running a sportscenter segment. We did it like three in the morning but I couldn't hear it but I looked at US and my body language looks so bad and I was like oh no oh I didn't realize I looked like that. I'm just like kind of standoffish. I'm thinking I don't WanNa say obscene cking backwards and I looked suspicious and just like I'm dying for the segment to be over yeah well. This is my that's a telling thing my my body language critique in these situations is that what as a viewer what you want is as you want body language narrative over the course of the segment so it's totally okay to start it uncomfortable as long as you end up comfortable. This is my my the way I think he is actually a performance genius. My issue was Stephen is that he only has one gear. No that's not true you missed Acoustic Stephen in my podcast uh-huh yeah I listened to that but he didn't bring a band. It was just it was him and his guitarist he but he come on. He hawked non non. Stop a strip down Stephen Vodka. I've never been a podcast. You've ever done what you said less than I loved it. I love and somebody was paying rate. You turned on the tape. I think you probably a couple of direction. I thought you'd left for coffee in the middle the easiest hour and a half I've ever had he so epic pick but what you want with like where is the voice modulation where I wanna an emotional moment to get really quiet and soft and Dan Dan Rev backup. I want that kind of I want the so I know he can do that. 'cause we would hang out at the finals on the big set of they constructed and that's why we got to know each other when everybody thought we hated each other. We actually liked each other but he he can do it. We can't do it yeah. He's He's mastered performance with opinion. He's he's figured out he it took him forever but he is figured out how to do it. Where there's like a little twinkle in his eye the whole time you never take him one hundred percent seriously a he's put in analysis and no one the accent better than his accent? She's fantastic. It's he's just fantastic. He's he's done unbelievable so you don't mind me speaking to the NBA but listen. I always have to bring this up but Steven. I think one or both of his parents are Jamaican of not wrong really course he makes so much. Percents is totally that's weird expert. I have a Popovich quick ran. I wanted to be thinking about Popovich. I wanted there's ASSUMPTA. PTI straight we did football. I'm just annoyed by Popovich. The cult of Popovich cannot believe you're saying I know this is but discos ties into your book and perception versus reality and how people think for actually putting thought and stuff here. Would it'd be a totally valid criticism of Popovich. I'm not saying I one hundred percent believe this but here's a totally out of criticism fucking bully. He's a bully to sideline then reporters doesn't need to be that's your argument that he's mean that done okay boy the sideline reporters he gets his ass kicked in team. USA and then goes on the offensive and it's like anybody who who is complaining about how we did like we don't. He does this whole thing. That just sounded like so lame. It's like take some ownership. You guys finish seven. We've all the best basketball players playing on that team yet but we I don't like seven Pontiac team that would was marcus saw Ricky Rubio Rudy Fernandez Sergio low and we have like people are acting like we were sending you know. Grants Calabrese added the big three to play in the thing and we're really good. It should make you look the salaries of all. The players are ten times more at the Boston Celtics. They got their clocks cleaned. He picked the wrong team..

"If you've been listening to this tale this tally meg low maniacal racially discriminatory cheap millionaire who loathed to being called Don or donald by his subordinates but loved putting his surname on properties he's and if that reminded you of someone guess what it reminded. Ramona also these sterling trump comparison is one as her reporting bears out one that was eagerly made by Donald Sterling himself. This is from the thirty thirty sterling affairs episode three sterling like putting his name on everything preferably in big Gold Letters Sterling Plaza Sterling Ambassador Tower Sterling International National Towers. When you look Donald Sterling you have a tendency to want to compare him to donald trump west sterling love that comparison in fact not invited he wanted everyone to think of him as rich powerful and dashing so in one thousand nine hundred nine he hired his longtime friend. Michael salesman to help him mm spread that message I got him on the cover of California magazine as the man who would be trump on the west coast there it is California magazine July one thousand nine hundred nine the man who would be trump in big white letters the comparison between the two Donald's is off in some ways but in an important way it's bigger than you may even realize so. Donald Sterling was ruthless brazen and mercenary but there is every bit of evidence that he was actually a true billionaire. His properties really were valued in the billions and that was an evaluation that a fake underlying to browbeat a Forbes Forbes reporter in order to achieve sterling was also actually was the owner of a major professional sports team not a USFL owning buffalo low bills reject tea and he was successful because he was so mercenary in fact one way to if not appreciate that understand surly sterling success is to realize that there is a bonafide case to be made that he played the NBA ownership game better than anyone else did. All the other owners were chasing championships so that means they often spent lavishly and got losing or mediocre records. Sterling erling on the other hand would spend parsimoniously and achieved these similar losing record. If you step outside the mindset that there's a morality to the attempt in winning that there is a virtue in striving to hoist a trophy and you just think of the way to keep score as the valuation of Your Franchise Sterling can be said to have played the game as good as anyone ever has a rational economic actor would look at the NBA and assess that all the franchises values values rose as the value of the League rose the value of the League would rise as franchisors try to outdo each other in building entertaining teams an interesting fan experiences because the fan experiences would drive ticket prices and that allowed them to pay higher salaries but if thirty teams this attempt this twenty-nine fail every year the best outcome would be to win all the time but since no team can win all the time the Optimal Strategy Ritchie is not to try to win but to draft off everyone else's attempts and to see your valuation go up with a guaranteed low expenditure which which is exactly what Donald Sterling did. It's what to some extent the owners of baseball's. Miami marlins tried to do with the previous owners of the Cleveland Cavaliers also attempted it makes sense and if you put the fact that Donald Sterling wasn't unethical operator in many many many other ways this strategy strictly speaking is not wrong now. Donald Trump on the other hand has never been so clever as to get himself in that kind of situation where he could just sit by as his partner or spend money and he benefits Donald Trump is a man who licensed his family name to a brand of stakes for a million dollars arguably devaluing his family name by much more than a million dollars with the failure of the brand extension but what Donald Trump does and here's where the comparison is really really on on target with Donald Trump does and what donald sterling did was never take their eyes off. The prize and the prize is wealth. It's not power. It's not success. It's not esteem. It's not women. They both had a character failing for women. The prize is wealth. Both men live their lives to accumulate wealth. The Donald Trump presidency is best understood as being born of profit motive and conducted in a slipshod haphazard to and fro way that defies every explanation except for this one through line the personal enrichment of Donald Trump not saying in trump's very good at it just that no one has ever conceived the presidency in this way I mean the founding fathers were worried about it witnessed the emoluments clause but donald trump trump is a pioneer. There are many different explanations for trump's motivations. You'll hear them all. They seem to be at odds but they're not. Let's acknowledge. He's in it for for ego gratification. He enjoys the adulation of the crowds. He can't help but lashing out at any criticism no matter how small or how true but the reason that trump is in office is not for power or self-aggrandizement these are abstract concepts for a non abstract thinker. Everything everything trump does is to make money. It's all he knows it explains all of his actions granted previous presidents have also had selfish motivations but selfishness in the case of those politicians was a political selfishness to get reelected or to advance their agenda or their status or the standing in their party party or of their party not trump he's Venal. He wants more money and if he leaves office more hated but more rich well. That's been the hallmark mark of his entire career his life and don't you doubt that he will tell us about it over and over again he'll brag about how smart he was as evidenced by how oh well his business did as the result of him being president and he will call his critics all bitter and he will call us all suckers and in this case for once he'll be right and that's it for today show just as produced by Daniel Schrader who also has holdings policies Blake Griffin's and doc rivers numbers on speed dial he also it being twenty nine thousand nine you to speed dial and if you have an impressive producers rolodex or simply want to acquire one come join the staff of the gist the associate producer position is open it calls for some creative bold and fun slate dot com slash jobs the gist for years.

"The locker room walls. The new army bases used to the war of well-trained highly unskilled young men on this night the Falcons face the only other team located on domestic military base the Fort Knox Eagles. They call it the army ball all week. Falcons head coach Sean Burner has been reminding his team that this year's game special because awesome date on the calendar. You're not GonNa get another opportunity guys seniors. This is it. This is your last opportunity high school football and it's the last opportunity opportunity to play in this army bowl and it's scheduled on nine eleven. That's mean a lot to you especially for what your parents to guys make your parents proud every kid on the team every kid in that school in fact had at least one parent in the military and I was thinking about my time in Fort Campbell recently family and when I say time before Campbell how I would typically do. These reports is getting on a Monday. Stay with the team for week of practice and then cover the game. They played on on a Friday. The reason I was thinking about four Campbell is not because it's nine eleven not because of the wars in Afghanistan and inviting the Taliban Camp David not because football season started for Campbell specifically has been in the news for Campbell's on the front page of The New York Times a few days ago and I will tell you why after I play this next clip from my decade old report. The team runs an intricate no huddle offense that requires each player to think on the fly and the coaches know what the kids are going through off the field senior. You're Chris Allen says the biggest difference between playing for a team. That's on a military base filled. Only with military kids and playing on any other team is the difference between friendship and kinship. Alan wants played at a public high school office. You'd be down one day not they wouldn't even know your parents were gone. You'd be down one day be crying. They just asked what happened and you tell them and they'll be we like oh man because they haven't heard it before and they don't know what to do and then they would just let it go off but here everybody knows how what the feeling is and they had come for. You and it's just a whole lot better environment for this last. Year's deployments were worse than just frustrating the father of Josh Carter the senior leader of the defense was killed in Afghanistan even more than two hundred soldiers based at four Campbell of lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. This was the first time in principle Dave Witty's four years at Fort Campbell that the parent of one of his students had died when word it came out of the death within within an hour I would say almost every coach was at the students house they were there to support. They were there to work. They were the kids came over and they're to support in there to work. So that's kind of a brotherhood. It was at least an acknowledgment that there would be sacrificed but it would be shared now. I'll tell you why four Campbell was in the news for Campbell is the military base that has been and denied a desperately needed new Middle School. The current middle school is so overcrowded. That's some students have to eat lunch in the library and the reason the badly needed the new school won't be built. Even though the money was set aside is that sixty two point six million dollars allotted to the Fort Campbell community and their new Middle School is is being taken from them in order to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico the thanks that the families who are the the parents at Fort Campbell which is to say the soldiers in our army. The thanks they are getting is that their kids will have to cram together some more to we'll have to sacrifice some more as if what they already sacrifice on an ongoing basis is not enough because our president could not through normal Democratic Appropriations Fund his signature project so that got me to thinking about Fort Campbell and a team the football team team that was a worrying attack squadron now the current four Campbell football team. I just looked it up. Owen three but back then they were unstoppable. Applicable happened to witness the fourth win of the season that would become an undefeated season culminating in a state championship so it was gratifying defying to be able to end that piece this way but also disappointing to realize just how much the sentiment that I expressed in two thousand nine ah no longer holds up using football as a metaphor for life is not unique to Fort Campbell a place where they're resigned to the fact that life's harsh lessons cannot be stopped but there's comfort in knowing that on Friday nights neither can the football team on the show today. I should feel about to rich men named Donald but first thirty for thirty is the ESPN series film and podcast and they are now out with a five part series about the La Clippers the worst team in the NBA now you may recall that the owner of the La Clippers.

"Again speaking of the clippers the sterling affairs by part series from thirty for thirty podcast of the undefeated now available the sterling Donald sterling era we certainly one that was a black eye for the NBA the thirty for thirty series reported and hosted by ESPN's Ramona Shelburne this story continues to fascinate me because I don't sterling he acted inappropriately for three decades for thirty years and it all came down to a tape why did this tape bring him down well there was something just about hearing his words on tape here you can know that somebody has beliefs and and you can feel that they're not a good person you can feel that the way they they assert their power over players are people who work for them but when you actually hear his words that's what I think did it that's what I think really broke through but I you know I remember talking to mark Mike Walters who is the guy from TMZ who broke the story and he'd never heard it all sterling he'd never he was not sports reporter he didn't know it was you just knew it was a powerful person and it got me thinking like if this tape comes out earlier if we don't have it TMZ if we don't have a different media culture where you could record somebody on your cell phone and then send it to a gossip website exited to a celebrity website does this even come out because there's certainly been people that Donald sterling has spoken like this too who have heard him speak like this before they just didn't have the receipts they didn't have the tape yeah absolutely I mean theknot what with the ray rice case at center as well or sometimes hearing seeing changes everything we were talking I remember being live during the NBA finals and twenty nineteen with Adam silver as news surrounding sterling continue to break in this all came during Adams first few months in office so in hindsight Ramona how did Adams reaction set the tone for the league and the players going forward well I think one of the biggest takeaway is that I have in in re re re reporting that's right going back in five years later is how close the players in the NBA came to boycotting playoff games over this and how how close to the brink we actually war of shutting down the league and not playing if Adam so doesn't act as quickly and decisively as he did on this now he knew that he was going to actually punish him severely he knew he was going to get rid of him it as fast as he could but he had to keep the peace for four days while they investigated whether or not this was Donald sterling on those tapes where they'd been doctored whether it's been altered he had to keep everyone in line then that would that involve conversations with players doc rivers Kevin Johnson who was then head of the Players Association and for Adams over that to work with the players as a partner in this assuring them I will do the right thing really transform the league in the way that players owners in the league work together as partners and now we see it all the time now I mean Adam silver has open line it feels funny last week actually has has that open might actually be became public and had to change a cell phone number because one of the players he give it is not his number two accidentally posted on social media that's all over his locker out the sterling fares by part series and thirty for thirty podcasts all five episodes now available at thirty for thirty podcast dot com slash

"Like the commissioner works for the owners and and as you point out in here there were enough owners with enough skeletons in their closet <hes> who didn't want to set the precedent because if they had donald sterling on this they had other guys on other things and they didn't want to open that door for themselves and that allowed loud sterling to exist in the league and and have all this happened very public humiliating weird uncle. Go quality to sterling thing that you and i know the league which is that there's you know there's thirty teams and people would like all of you just think of it like a neighborhood right so you know your your house and they're you know you'd like everybody to keep their lawn and look you know have certain standard to what their house looks like because it helps the value of everybody but you don't. You don't want everybody to have a mansion. You don't wanna have a nicer house than you and if there's one house on the street that like probably should be really really good like the clippers are in los angeles which is just prime real estate and as you've seen now that they're in the hands of a capable owner they th they're now free agent destination and they have real management ajman have real real front office organization now like they're sleeping giant and i think that there was this quality amongst the rest of the team teams in the league of like yeah we should. We should do something about sterling. It's an embarrassment but you know what let's let. Let's let the let the clippers via sleeping giant. Let let them be that that weird uncle weird house that painted pink and kind of you know. Nobody really wants to live next to that neighbor. Let's let's say there because then now they're not a threat wrote a you covered the sterling years. You covered the n._b._a. In l. a. you covered as a local reporter earlier in your career and then at e._s._p._n. Then you covered this entire episode <hes> throughout but in doing the research the reporting for the podcast a series what surprise you what didn't you know is much about as you thought maybe you did go into because no one knew the story better than you <hes> <hes> i would say and this this is like the chick okay in me okay so this is like i like the juicy love triangle but <hes> <hes> there was this one part and i worked with producer name. Is julia julia lowery henderson. She did this great series on beckham yoga before and i thought i knew everything. I knew. There have been previous mistresses. I'd i'd read the drudge report. I read peter keating story in the magazine. I read i read some of those other depositions but it wasn't until julia pulled out the actual legal research and we started going through one of the old cases involving a mistress name alexander castro than this deposition that i'm sure you've probably felt really bad for me that i had to voice right. You'll i'll just say this. You'll know it when you get to it. You'll definitely know was was in part three right. Yeah i mean we really tried hard to get the audio of that and there's a really there's a fun back story about where that audio might be. The lawyer involves it was it was stolen and it was the only thing stolen out of his office but you know we didn't have the audio of it but we do have have the written deposition and i had to voice it and it's donald sterling talking about a previous mistress and it's just a whole range..
Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era
"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous.

"The players least responsible in terms of actually playing for them in the n._b._a. You only have so many choices in terms of where you can play if you could trade somewhere you have no control over that right but the the league and frankly the media particularly the local media. We were complicit in a lot of this. We spent a long time largely focusing on donald sterling as an owner and being like cheap and not caring about the winning then actually carrying about the person that he was i mean it's always struck me as ironic that for decades is donald sterling as a slum lord mistreated nameless faceless minorities correct and everybody really looked the other way i mean he had had housing suit housing discrimination suits. Everyone looked the other way. The moment everyone freaked out and said okay that is a bridge too far <hes> was was him speaking disparagingly about magic johnson the one black man that don't need any of our help to fight back. You don't talk bad about magic but right but i'm just saying it's kind of crazy when you think think about also a familiar trope though if there was once there was actual audio two different the same thing with ray rice in the video yet right and it's people seem to need that that direct direct evidence <hes> to actually view it and that's like that's the basic difference between a lot of the stuff that we think also to <hes>.

They have a racist. And she answered no he is not. And they said are these things true? And she said, no, of course, on I want to say something, I think it's very interesting.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged in prostitution sting
"A multi-billionaire Robert Kraft owner of the most successful football team of a generation is caught soliciting sex in Florida. Yes. And part of a human trafficking sting. Bob Kraft is charged with two counts of soliciting someone to commit prostitution in Palm Beach county. And the cops say they have videotape of him paying for the axe inside this Asian massage parlor, the orchids of Asian day spa in Jupiter, Florida. So there's been a months long investigation into all of this. There were ten total spa. Shut down as part of this thing in Orlando Palm Beach county on the treasure coast, again Coffman looking into this for several months showing that women there were in sexual servitude. Boy, terrible terrible situation. There were two hundred arrest warrants or somewhere in that ballpark issued in recent days. More are expected and Robert Kraft was among them. It's one thing that if you're talking about him soliciting some Hooker when it's part of a human trafficking sting. Oh, yeah. And that gets into the spotlight because that is a problem across the country across the world. Yeah. Then what does the NFL do with that? You wonder you. You would think I mean come on. What's his name with the oh, I just blanked on his NBA team owner got caught on a hidden recording device. Shoot man, always the clippers owner now, I forget his name, sterling. Donald sterling. So that guy. I mean, he he was booted essentially, right? I mean kind of iced out of the league for that. Robert. I mean, yeah, I mean it was that. I mean, there was a lot of things that led to that. I mean, he was known as the worst owner in the NBA had done a lot of stupid bad things over the years. Robert Kraft has this great reputation. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But this is a criminal. I know and especially like you said if there is human trafficking going on. Man. Oh, man. And my goodness. So as the nine it right now. Right as denying it. Although the police have confirmed now they have video evidence not only have been paying, but allegedly capturing what went down. And the mental image that comes to mind. Immediately leads me to another thought, which is cops work in. This case aren't getting paid enough. Whatever they're getting paid. It is not an oh boy. It sounds like a cheap shot. But it's true. I mean craft before what are you talking about, you know, investigations things like that that he wanted to see hard evidence. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. We expect hard facts as opposed to circumstantial evidence. No, he's not talking about. This story is stories from the past. I just saying that's Deflategate, right? Or was that spy gate? That was Deflategate. Going by gate is different eroneous story coming out was really harmful. And what bothers me more about this story is where it went throughout the country where people don't know us as well. Well, they know you pretty well down in Jupiter. Don't they I think they do. They won't see this retraction. But people who know us know what we're about. Oh,

"We put everyone through respect in the workplace training. And we've taken some action show that we are about zero tolerance. And I'm real excited about the fact that forty seven percent forty seven percent of our leadership team are women. I mean, that's literally changed from zero percents. So that's a pretty big different people that color. All right. I'll give him credit for that. I give them credit for changing things up mixing things up. I'll give him credit for going on and apologizing for it. Right. There's some good here. But there's still some stuff that doesn't add up just the penalty part the penalty phase of the program as we say write a check for ten million dollars, which is nothing to a billionaire. It's a lot to you and me, but it's nothing to a billionaire stroke in a check to first of all it's a tax deductible contribution to charity is what it is. It's actually helps them out. I think the penalty should have been more. Stiff I really do. Look, we saw the NBA force daughter. Donald sterling out of the league for life. Forced them to sell the clippers Costa may two billion dollars on a deal worked out for. But again, remember he made racist comments on private recordings that people were he was being recorded in his own private home, and he hundred some racial comments got out in public. And then the league said, you you under pressure is that you get rid of. We can't have this anymore for racist. Comments would was off the record. And not that that makes it better. But it wasn't like he was out in public and clippers game spewing racial epithets or anything like that. But nonetheless makes the comments team forces them to sell because they got seventy five percent of the players African American was bad luck. They said you're gone you're out of here like him very much anyway, but because of the racial comments Donald sterling had to sell the clippers here we have almost two decades of sexual harassment of up to fifteen women feeling uncomfortable in the workforce. For almost two decades. And we write a check for ten million dollars to charity, and we're cool. Does that seem like enough? I don't think it does. It reeks of payoffs. We see we we hear stories are politicians writing checks to people to make them go away to make problems. Boy, this feels like he wrote a check to make a problem. Go away. And I think Adam silver is a little tone deaf on this. I think he thinks. All right. This all feels good. We're going into the right direction. We're progressive all this kind of stuff. I think there's going to be an outcry over this reaction as can be so bad here over the next twenty four to forty eight hours. I think adds silvers gonna have to revisit this. I think he's gonna have to consider. Now. I don't think that Mark Cuban should have to sell his team. Actually think it's kinda on American, but this is a private club. It's the NBA not regular business. It's not free trade. They could force them to sell. They decided not to hear. They didn't go the Donald sterling route. I I suspect you might be in order. I think he's gonna have to revisit I think he's going to have to tack on here. Be like when the Commissioner Roger Goodell had to redo the Ray rice thing, I it was two games for knocking around his fiancee. Then the video came out. There was six games. There was like Ray rice is never gonna play football again. I think Adam silver thinks this is done. Mark Cuban's changed. The culture has changed the CEO. He wrote a check for ten minutes over now. I don't think so I think the outcry today and tomorrow is going to be so loud. I think he's gonna have to revisit it. Ten game suspension would be more in order here. And it hurts me to say Cuba's an Indiana grad, just like me. I mean seriously though, I think they'll have to relook at this. You're gonna agree or disagree? Hit me up on Twitter at Craig ESPN on that coming up. We're gonna take a look what's coming up with Golic and wingo. So stay with us Craig for Mike Golic junior.

"donald sterling" Discussed on Around the Horn
"We'll plas what he paid Clinton aides Bob Ryan in the NFL. League divided. Also demand trade to own the Tibbs. Let's go around the war. So he has five. Sleep. It's a round the Horne, the show of competitive better. Here's Tony really the seven month independent investigation into the Dallas Mavericks organization old, finding a substantiating, the claims of a workplace environment, rife with misconduct and harassment by former and current employees and improper or an effective management. The franchise will make ten million dollars in donations to organizations that promote women in leadership roles, combat domestic violence going forward. The team will have to provide the league with quarterly reports, enhanced training, and implement progress. National panel to Trajan. MBA franchise one owned by one of the league's most high profile owners, Mark, Cuban, how do you consider it all Bill? I don't understand this. This is a quirk place culture in in Dallas of systematic sexual harassment and workplace. Misconduct investigators found that Mark Cuban newel Sullivan and didn't react accordingly, didn't react appropriately to solve it in all they can let him do right at ten million dollar check and he's off the hook. How does he not get suspended house, Mark, Cuban still involved in a Mavericks basketball team. Now, if not for the near future forever, I mean, you have other places and other other other sports. Jerry Richardson sales of the Panthers Donald sterling gets ousted from the clippers. Owners are responsible Mark Cuban sits behind the bench at games. He's very involved this team, and they investigation found out discovered that he knew some of this stuff and didn't react the way as CEO should react. Why is he still there? I don't understand that. What do you page Bill? I think you're absolutely right about the ownership didn't show much leadership, and that's Mark Cuban. We've talked about he's been very vocal and active owner over the years, but we find out that he rarely if ever went to the business office of the Mavericks, which was about three miles away from the basketball operations. So he didn't really know what was going on in when he did find out this disturbing action took place for more than you. One year are few months. It went on for years before he finally got around to firing the guy that was most responsible. So I think not only is that fine pocket change to guy that's worth more than three billion dollars, but he should be suspended. I mean, following actions in other leagues Bill talked about, I think that he deserves to be suspended for saying more than he did when he would say things to referees at ringside. But I hope now they've totally cleaned up as a result of the investigation and moving forward they do the right thing. For the most progressive league in the United States of America to have your most famous owner get off with being able to throw money at a problem, which is arguably one of the biggest causes that we are dealing with becoming better at it. Our nation right now isn't basing I just don't understand this at all. You just can't sit there and tell me that after you knew all this was happening and after we basically all of us found out about it through reporting and now through their own ability to give us the information that giving money to causes that you could probably already be supporting any way is sufficient. I'm sorry, this looks like a situation in which it telling me that basically because he's rich, he's allowed to get away with this. He represents that team is way way way too famous in order to be running this operation for people to feel like he's doing it. Well, I don't like this at all and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. And Bob run four for four here that he's getting off easy by writing a check to make this thing. Go away and then he does deserve more censure and even his suspension. I, I wouldn't argue with that. The lease, but gentlemen, it's two thousand eighteen for one thing. None of us have any reason to be shocked. Shocked that such a thing took place in an American workplace, whether it's a movie studio or whether it's a Wall Street of a place or whether it's the office of the Dallas Mavericks, this is the comet doll, these things are coming to light. This is another log on the metoo fired. A thing that makes this when more disgusting more than just appalling about sexual harassment thing is the element of the pornography that went on the pornography that was tolerated..

Remember he silenced during that period when you're in the sunken place, you can literally not speak. Yeah, there's a little. Air with the body experience and that Prescott isn't a tough situation. Now, as an athlete who's been in a similar situation, this is the way you feed your family. Do you do not have the money, nor the means on the resources necessarily to walk away and is this call is big enough? Is it big enough to where you step away from it? I was on that clippers team when Donald sterling? Yes. Had his whole big shebang of. Early one way of putting it is his farewell tour the anti farewell tour with the lady. Yeah. And we had a message in the locker room. We, we had our one little outbursts in Doc. Rivers goes, listen guys. I want to know what you're going to do because I don't want you to go out and do something crazy in the one thing that we kinda agreed to do that we ran out and we took our shirts and we do it down and that was that. And after that doc said, listen, do not speak out, don't say anything. We still have games the win. We still have a plan. We're playing the warriors that time. We have a big season at hand to to to play. There's still a lot of basketball left. Now, Ryan highlands is not the guy to essentially blackball himself potentially or put myself in a poor situation where my team or two emotionally hijack the Los Angeles Clippers until my feelings about Donald sterling and everything at the time. So I had to be quiet. I shut my mouth. There were no, and I was asked, I was actually asked from the station and say, hey, we want you to come on and speak about it. And I said, I have gotten direct orders from my job, not to do that. And. I had some people that asked me, hey, this is your chance, take a stand and say this and that I'm like, dude, I don't. Why are you surprised everybody knew sterling was racist. Why go? Why are you so surprised now? I know all those job, right? I mean, like the the selective outrage that went along with that and and everybody. I mean, and I mean, everybody was complicit in a lot of ways because it was no secret at all that Donald sterling was who he was. And what I always found funny about this is, you know, Donald sterling spent decades disenfranchising, nameless faceless powerless people of color. The minute. People decided you can't do this anymore was when he said, bad things about magic deaths, don't know about that one guy, the one person of color who needs nobody's help whatsoever getting magic and take care of himself. That was a bridge too far and like along those lines, like there's a part of me that feels bad for Dak Prescott because I feel like he's. Actually been put in a bad position by Jerry Jones explained that coming up. Also, Alan sleep is going to be join us. Talk a little Lakers forty, five wins over under.
