17 year old Canice Ejoh of Brampton, Ontario (where my brother lives) received permission from his mother to host a party at their still under construction mansion being built.

Putting out a twitter hashtag called #mansionparty was probably a bad idea. 2,000 people showed up and many were arrested for underage alcohol consumption and public intoxication.

Damage to the house is estimated at $70,000. Insurance will not cover it since the kid let everyone in.

Fucking idiot.

Even if this goes to court, it won't be a very high profile case imo....nothing like Casey Anthony, Zimmerman or anyhthing like that. No one was hurt or killed, no babies found in a ditch, no pretty blonde teenage girls went missing. An old white dude said some racist type shit. Despicable, but hardly news.

Sterling very well can, and probably will sue the girl for recording their conversation. And he'd win that easily. However, the legality (or lack thereof) behind the recording has no bearing in how the NBA handles it. The NBA did not do anything illegal, they simply reacted to a story. They also did their due diligence in confirming it was Sterling's voice before taking action.

Since all NBA matters are handled internally through mediation and not litigation, courtroom law does not apply. The laws are far more relaxed in this case than they would be if it were being argued in front of a judge.

Sterling's comments are a threat to the NBA's bottom line and that's all that really matters. I think at least a half dozen (maybe more by now) sponsors have already suspended their association with the Clippers. You can be certain that if Sterling were to continue as owner, not only would the Clippers lose sponsors, but the NBA as a whole would as well. The Clippers would also never be able to sign another player and would be forced to fold. THAT is all the league needs to force you out.

This isn't a move about being politically correct (or even just correct), it's about protecting the league as a whole in order to keep the money flowing in from Pepsi, McDonald's, Gatorade, Nike, etc, etc.

Possibly...probably, but I believe the last thing he'll want is any additional limelight.

Could make for some great popcorn & couch time though. Greta would be all over it. We haven't had a splashy tv trial since Zimmerman.

I agree bridgetender. And yes I agree that you nailed it. One small difference in the situations. This racist didn't make a public statement, he was talking on the phone with his girl friend. Also he made no hateful remarks, all he did was express his personal preference. I believe he has grounds for a wopper of a law suit against the girl friend and her accomplice and the news media that made his conversation public and probably against the NBA. The lesson here is be careful of things you say when you don't know who is on the other end. If you have something controveral to tell someone, do it face to face and be sure the other person is not recording it

PAWGS....Didn't know that either. Old dog learnin' new tricks, or new acronyms anyway.

@Bill - Your comment about the patriot reminded me of what happened with Hank Williams Jr and MNF a few years back. Hank made some comments and based on those, Monday Night Football fired him. My friends on FB were up in arms. One, even mentioned freedom of speech and the protections that provides. I may be mistaken, but I think your patriot post was meant along those lines. Unfortunately, FOS only keeps the secret police from carting you off in the middle of the night. It doesn't protect you from being fired because the company you work for, or partner with, sees potential financial damage from your words or actions. When I offered this explanation, one FB friend called me a corporate sell-out. The NFL, NBA, or any corporate entity for that matter, exists to make money. Period. They have specific rules in place, ethics, behavior, etc., that are there to protect this goal. Violate them and you're out. It has nothing to do with Freedom Of Speech. After they've canned you, you're well within your rights to continue to blog, organize a rally or parade for your cause, or stand on any street corner and spout your thoughts, mainstream or not. The secret police won't spirit you off. Men and women have died, and will continue to die to protect that right. They're the patriots.

On a completely different subject; perhaps I'm becoming totally out of touch with the nuances of the lifestyle recently, but just within the last week I've seen a number of references to "PAWGS". Would someone please inform this hopelessly bewildered dunce what that stands for?
