More First Amendment Neglect

Maybe professional sports franchises don't have to respect the law of the land but they should.This foxsports article tells the story. It seems Albany coach Micheal Ray Richardson ruffled some feathers of the really really sensitive.

Richardson will miss the rest of the CBA's best-of-five championship series
after he told The Albany Times Union that he had "big-time Jew lawyers" working
for him.
"They got a lot of power in this world, you know what I mean? Which
I think is great," Richardson told The Times Union on Tuesday. "I don't think
there's nothing wrong with it. If you look in most professional sports, they're
run by Jewish people. If you look at a lot of most successful corporations and
stuff, more businesses, they're run by Jewish. It's not a knock, but they are
some crafty people."

Ol' BC is missing the anti-semitism here. Actually, it sounds pretty complimentary to me. Would it be a big deal if he had hired big-time Irish lawyers? I doubt it.

Just an observation.
