That's actually the problem Clippers fans faced for years. Mere location ensured Donald Sterling made millions even if his team was terrible.

The only negative about Knicks Go is that he couldn't have been named after a better basketball team.

It's closer to "this is easy, and we need the sport's leaders to take on more difficult things".

And bear in mind, it is very selective. Nobody suspended Bob Baffert when he made sexist comments...

If Bud Selig had suspended a .250/10HR hitter in 1999 during the middle of the steroid era for making racist statements, I would say the same thing. Glad he is gone, but this is serious distraction...

The funny thing is your username refers to another Euro horse who came over and burned a boatload of money in a BC race.

The Jockey Club has historically been part of the problem- for instance, they vetoed "Sally Hemings" (by Colonial Affair), an ANTI-racist name, because they hated the suggestion that their white...

Do you think Grape Juice was the first racist horse name?

How many anti-Hispanic slurs do you think get thrown around the backstretch by white trainers here in California?

TLG is quite correct on the merits here. Despite my cynicism about racing and who it punishes and who it doesn't, EG's conduct here was indefensible and NYRA was perfectly within its rights to do...

I've never been a big fan of the political valence of this sport being so reliant on brutal Middle Eastern dictatorships- and in that regard, I am also not a fan of labeling the brutal, awful,...

They were the original rap stars. The discourse style of auctioneers dates back at least 150 years or so.

Another DQ at the start, this time in the 9th at Santa Anita yesterday. (I bet the DQ'd horse, but only to win.) The :4: was DQ'd for apparently causing a chain reaction that caused the :6: to lose...

I'm pretty surprised by the DQ of the :8: in the 4th at SA yesterday, January 8. It was a squeeze play at the start. The :8: clearly initiated it, but (1) it was at the start of a 2 turn race...

Bear in mind, that is the rule (enforced by federal prison sentences!) in the stock market. And yet Wall Street's "handle" is huge. People like to bet in a fairly run pool.

Probably gets underrated in "all time greatest" debates because she was a middle distance grass specialist. But damn was she good.
