After the NBA banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life for making racist comments, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said the NFL wouldn’t have done the same thing. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says otherwise.
Goodell said at today’s league meeting that he respects the decision NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made in removing Sterling from the NBA.
“I think they made the right decision. I salute Adam Silver for being decisive. He made the right statement and he’s doing the right things,” Goodell said.
That would indicate that if an NFL owner is ever caught on tape making racist comments, Goodell would suspend that owner for life. NFL owners would be wise to watch what they say.
