Re: Allegations of racism and misogyny within the Phoenix Suns: Inside Robert Sarver's 17-year tenure as owner

I actually took a look at the FERC website and Sarver actually has a long history of donating to Democrats. For some reason, I could not get data on more recent years but it is quite possible and likely that he gave more money to Democrats than Republicans. How rich folks do political donations is t...

Clinton, Trump, Bill Gates, Prince Andrew. Who DIDN'T spend time at the island. No wonder none of us trust the political and economic elite anymore.

Re: Biden Administration misc. activities

I think that the point most folks are missing is that there are different types of Muslims doing very different types of things. Many Wahibis preach political violence and terrorism (and this is why Madrassas built by the Saudis stir up trouble in so many places). The Sufis are all about quiet medit...

The verdict will embolden more armed right wingers to bring assault rifles to confront protesters they don’t approve of and end up shooting a lot more people in “self defense”.
Another step towards civil war

Are you sure the US involvement didn't embolden China more, and create the super restrictive regime that NK is now?

And wasn't the same thing said about Viet Nam?
Oh -- think I have to disagree on this one.

Re: Biden Administration misc. activities

I think that Trump set the wheels in motion but that Biden also cannot escape responsibility. After all, State and Defense both argued against an immediate pullout and Biden disregarded them. This doesn't mean that Trump didn't screw us. It just meant that Biden's brain fart finished the job.

Re: Around the League: Week 4 (11/7 - 11/13)

I don’t know if I agree that Zion is better than Ayton will ever be. He’s a far more aggressive offensive player and uses his size and athleticism to get to the rim and for that I don’t think Ayton will ever exceed him. But Ayton’s impact on the defensive end and his ability to rebound (which still...

Re: Allegations of racism and misogyny within the Phoenix Suns: Inside Robert Sarver's 17-year tenure as owner

The point I'm trying to make is that video isn't anywhere close to enough evidence for the NBA to forcibly remove him as owner of the Suns. That's the end goal we're all hoping to reach here, right? So I'm not going to give much mind to the surrounding noise like that video. There needs to be hard ...

Re: Allegations of racism and misogyny within the Phoenix Suns: Inside Robert Sarver's 17-year tenure as owner

I think Bickley said he heard the story from the same source as Jalen. Whether or not that source is telling the truth remains to be seen. And I guess Bickley isn't saying the story is necessarily true, just that he heard it from the same person. They need to get to the bottom of this. Someday, the...

Re: Allegations of racism and misogyny within the Phoenix Suns: Inside Robert Sarver's 17-year tenure as owner

Thanks for the update, gents. If Sarver admitted to using the N-word, it is a game changer.

Drew -- if you want to make it personal, go ahead. But the mods should step in at that point.

Re: Allegations of racism and misogyny within the Phoenix Suns: Inside Robert Sarver's 17-year tenure as owner

I obviously haven't been following this thread closely but have some quick questions: (1) Has there been any real validation of Sarver using the n-word? I see this being thrown around and don't recall there being any corroboration. But I'll gladly be corrected if there's any real evidence. (2) Of co...

Regardless of the truth of some of these allegations, it just isn't fun dwelling on this, so you might see me and a bunch of other folks being pretty disengaged this season. And this is what I hate about all of this, it was a hatchet job. And I am sure Rich Paul is behind a lot of this. Dude, did y...

BTW we have no idea whether he dropped racial slurs, you are taking Watson's word for this. Do you really believe he is an impartial observer here? I see an agenda.
