Sounds positively presidential.
Stiglich, are you accusing them of being Republican?
Not true! Republicans don’t have any principles.
The middle-east is about to get very messy because your guy is an idiot and you’re worried about a sports league?
And this has been the norm for decades….why is everyone so surprised? MONEY TALKS! a just like in politics…..
The GM of the Houston Rockets said he stands with the people of Hong Kong and the NBA came down on him and made him remove the tweet and apologize because it angered China and that’s a growing market for the NBA. Meantime, the greatest thinker of our time, Lebron Liberal James (apologies to AOC) has been silent on the oppressive actions of China. His sneakers continue to be made in China.
I’m beginning to think that tweets are all “Fake News;” especially those that originate from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Could Twitter be an “Enemy of the People?” /s
Just substitute power for profit and it becomes exactly like the entire republican party.
The bottom line is still the bottom line.
So does Ivanka Trump, but you won’t see certain cartoonists draw a bad line about her.
“Profits over principles”??? As they say in the Marines, “Surprise, surprise, surprise…”
The Rump should be proud!
Seriously, Stiglich? You, a Trump supporter, criticize a corporation for choosing profit over principal?
However, to a Republican, profit always comes before human lives.
Following the REPUBLICAN MODEL OF DEMOCRACY. Aren’t we proud?
The NBA has never been a non-profit organization (unlike the NFL who only became an honest “for profit” organization in 2015). And what is the one thing that distinguishes a non-proftit from other corporations? (Hint: It’s about… profit…). So yeah, just like almost every other corporation you ever heard of, they put profit ahead of anything except (sometimes) future profit. Am I sad? Yeah, sort of. Am I surprised. Not even a little bit.
I see that Varvel used exactly the same logo (top half). This logo is owned by the NBA, and I’m wondering if they’ll choose to go after either of them for “unfair use”.
Hey Stiglich, too bad you didn’t go back to get the updated information; this is not the result. It took the NBA a little time, but they did do the right thing. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/08/sports/adam-silver-nba-china-hong-kong.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage
