Yes, I already know. Don't forget-- same thing happened to the former Cincinnati Reds owner back in the 1990's.

He won't sell team. He said “The team is not for sale. He will not be selling the team.”

Donald Sterling says he won't sell team, then learns he may have to - latimes.com

That is exactly what the news said that he had done this before in the past.

I do not like his remarks between his girlfriend and the owner of LA Clippers. He is the one who screw up his remarks on the instagram. The family had tried to make her be the scapegoat and everything. Still his remarks is way out of line what he said was really terrible. He sounded like a slave owner to the basketball players. That is so uncalled for what he said. If a famous Black celebrity wanted to attend and watch the game. Then he or she had a right to come and watch the game. This is suppose to be a free country. No one should tell them who to come or who don't come. That is entirely wrong on this when he pointed out to the Black people. Anyone can come and watch the game. So what.

LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling banned for life
BBC News - LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling banned for life

The row erupted on Friday when celebrity news website TMZ published a 10-minute audio recording in which a man can be heard criticising a woman, believed to be Mr Sterling's girlfriend V Stiviano, for posting online photographs of herself with black friends at Clippers games.

"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you are associating with black people. Do you have to?" the man says.

"The little I ask is not to promote it on that... and not to bring them to my games."

That is where the comments come from saying that her Black friends were not allowed to come to the owner's game. Geeze. I think he is jealous of her being with her friends. I don't know what is up with him.

If they vote to force a sale, they put themselves in the same position. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Don't forget, the previous owner of George Steinbrenner (previous NY Yankee owner) was banned from MLB for life - Only to be reinstated 3 years later.
