Sports team ownership
In its treatment of Rush Limbaugh, the NFL has opened a door that other sports team owners might wish had remained closed.
Donald Sterling is the owner of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers. Sterling owns like 100 multifamily properties in SoCal and apparently he wasn't being lease friendly to minorities. He ended up settling for nearly $3 million. He was sued a few years ago by the Justice Dept over claims of housing discrimination. We just had the NFL climb on their soapbox and claim that Rush Limbaugh was unfit to be an owner in their league, what's the NBA's stance on Sterling? Our professional sports leagues are pretty hypocritical. They constantly are trying to portray a high character image while they have scumbag owners running the teams and scumbag players performing for them, then when a guy like Limbaugh surfaces, a few minority players throw up the race card and they shut down. Limbaugh's case was pretty weird especially considering that most NFL owners lean to the right.
