Let’s see if it punishes the punishers.
Since when is pro sports a free market enterprise. Pro sports could not exist without being heavily subsidized by tax dollars.
If I was worth close to 2 billion I wouldn’t care much about what they did. Burning money for spite would be my new team.
Can’t tell. The fascists attacked too fast to find out.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Hard to say if it will since the fan base is so heavily tilted toward blacks.
Never make enemies with an 80 year old multi-billionaire, especially one with a mean streak.
Like Mao Zedong when he was failing, he called upon the fundamental change of the nation. He had no need for laws he only needed to give his approval. Obama and Biden did no less in this matter and the others that came before it (Beer summit, Trayvon Martin, etc.). Instead of deferring to the rule of law, they gave their support to their Red Guards of Social Justice.
Today I hear calls for the league to take any profit he makes from selling the team, amazing. Like rapid dogs, their bellies are not full and they cannot be satisfied. For this struggle is not about racism, racism is just sword they will fall upon. Whether it is race, Christianity, the Catholic Church, abortion, the war on women, homosexuality, marriage...like Mao's Red Guards, it is about doing away with the old cultures.
Yes, the Morning Sun even rises in America.
The market had its chance to voice and show it’s opinion.
....I was told they had a sell out night last night....
I hope the free market punishes hypocrites who trample the 1st Amendment for political correctness.
