4. Regarding game ops, i need to start with some background. for the first couple of years we owned the team, i didn't much focus on game ops. then one day a light bulb went off. when digging into why our season ticket base is so small, i was told it is because we can't get 35-55 white males and corporations to buy season tixs and they are the primary demo for season tickets around the league. when i pushed further, folks generally shrugged their shoulders. then i start looking around our arena during games and notice the following:

-- it's 70 pct black

-- the cheerleaders are black

-- the music is hip hop

-- at the bars it's 90 pct black

Those darn blacks!! :lol :uhh

Its so Racist when you say anything about Black people. And I mean ANYTHING. Its fvcking Racist man :lol

 :monkey2



We're culturally diverse, but goddamned it, if you mention one of those diversities you are a a piece of shit Racist.

And forget the fact that he's paid millions upon hundreds of millions to black people, giving them gainful employment opportunities from the players to the hot-dog vendors.


You gotta' think about his Motive tho' for coming out and doing this... He saw Sterling just got 2 Billion for the Clippers.. Time to Cha-Ching $$$ on out. Move that money off-shore, and Sayonara baby!

I don't think there is anything wrong with what he said.

Standard CEO think--observations pulled out of his ass, theories without any facts.  I don't think it was racist, but probably the executive room variety obliviousness to the real problem of why you're not attracting fans (i.e. being one and done in the post season)

what he said wasn't racist.  he was just trying to figure out how to get white folks out to the games which are attended more by blacks.  I could see why he would think it would be (especially after D.Sterling's summer of diversity) thought of that way but, again the man didn't say anything that was close to what D.S. did or say.  btw, the ATL isn't known for having a passionate fan base anyway all of the teams have trouble drawing folks.  nothing here to see....
