UCLA Returns Donald Sterling Money

DTS.2

UCLA announced today that it would not accept a $3 million donation from banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling. I mentioned the above ad Sunday so it is good to note the university returned the money.

UCLA also confirmed what any Sterling watcher knows: He bought the above ad, which means he thanked himself for the donation.

    It’s pretty typical of the Bruins and the Clippers to make LA look bad – I hope people can see the beauty of LA through the dense smog that is in the form of these institutions – If they could, they would see USC.

      f ucla did the right thing returning Sterlings $3 million. We should return Arnold’s $20 million.

        Don’t pick on the Sperminator. He is obviously in favor of immigration reform. And Sterling? He is a segregationist by day and an integrationist by night. They are a great pair!

      • SUCC de trop

        Seems fair and the right thing for SUCC to do.

      • NOBSisdaMAN

        Sure, it was the right thing…..just tell that to someone that need dialysis.

    Somewhere deep in the bowels of Donald T. Sterling & Associates, an unpaid intern labored long and hard with a dull pair of scissors to cut out those photos and paste them into that ad.

    There is something very Trump-esque about including the very specific detail of the “gold-colored plaque.”

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      Don also looks considerably younger here than in any other photo or image of him that has surfaced lately.
      I suppose the intern didn’t have access to something more up to date.

  • ProbationU

    Where’s the picture of V. Stiviano? This Donald as opposed to The Donald gets approval from his wife to have a girlfriend. How understanding!

  • Cheap seats

    Why not keep the money, but take down the plaque?

    1) great to be a Bruin!!! We “get it”

    2) wolfman, once again, you were 10-15 chess moves AHEAD of everyone else!!! Amazing.

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      fugly only “got it” after the news today that he was banned from the NBA. fugly didnt make a peep before that, even though his comments were publicized.

      • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

        We simply waited for the Comish to validate it was Sterling on the tape. Then within hrs we made our move….THST’S HOW IT’S DONE, BOYEEEE!!

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          Right. What a lousy university and program. It’s sad the tax payers have to foot the bill for a bunch of losers.

            you can’t even afford your PSL, you cheap screw.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Looks like you keep getting DELETED! What a loser. Get ready for work, it should be a busy day for you on the ice cream machine at McDonalds

          • ProbationU

            Maybe you can send SC some of your comments and get your PSL money back.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            At least I HAVE money, Enjoy Baja Manhattan Beach.

          • ProbationU

            Yes…I will try to enjoy my life in the ‘hood! I wish I was more like you…old, cranky, and needing pharmaceuticals to function like a man.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Ask you wife how I function.

          • TrojanFan3.0

            EXACTLY!

        • Helen

          Actually there was no need to wait for the comish to validate as Sterling has a LONG history of racism. UCLA just chose to ignore that in favor of the dollars. Don’t feel sorry for yourself, the LA NAACP acted the same way.

          And I do find it very telling what kind of person Sterling is when he paid for an advertisement congratulating himself for making the contribution and making it look like the advertisement came from UCLA.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            Like I said above, too bad for people that NEED dialysis.

    • TrojanFan3.0

      The poor foreskin…ouch!

  • 10 Commandments

    So would Scott Wolf take $3mm from Donald Sterling or would he turn it down if asked to write a character piece? I think he might…

  • john wolcott

    Priceless

    Because of the format of the ad it seemed apparent that SUCLA had taken out the ad.

    But Mr. Self-Congratulatory took out the ad.

    This is one unbelievable cat

    But the “set-up” by the ex-girlfriend will resonate with people for a long time i.e. be careful what you say on the telephone

    • ThaiMex

      You’re a LAWYER, right? Turns out STERLING recorded the conversations, not, “V”. When you need a Lawyer real bad…..call a really bad Lawyer!

  • NOBSisdaMAN

    Right, AFTER the NBA slaps the guy’s face. Had to wait to see if they could keep the dirty money. Typical

    • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

      hey man, sorry about your hero Donald Sterling going down….BANNED!!! just like you have been many times on this blog!!

      and after you said he was taken out of CONTEXT!!!

      i suggest as a silent protest, you turn T-Fail’s panties inside out.

      • betomas

        haha! I have to admit…that was pretty funny Bucket! {it was even funnier because it was directed at the idiot bigot}

        • TrojanFan3.0

          Get the shiters cleaned, blogging time is over

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          TF is right. Get back to work. And BTW, how could you talk so poorly about your LANDLORD? Hahahahahahaha

      • TrojanFan3.0

        The only good panties are the ones hanging down by the ankles

        PS….jockstraps don’t count!

  • Larry Harris

    The penalties were a bit surprising…especially in light of the connective bond between the Clipper’s owner and the NBA commish…Sterling Silver?????????

  • NOBSisdaMAN

    Wonder when ph ucla players will return Papa Sam’s MONEY?
