The NBA has just suspended the Pacers’ Ron Artest for the rest of the seasongreat! I hope the Pacers dock his pay for it too.

This offense was inexcusable. Whatever the fans are yelling or throwing, you don’t go into the stands.

Our other major professional sports, particularly basketball, should really take a lesson from NASCAR. of course, it’s a different situation with auto racing (at least in the US, those F1 guys are another story). Do you think a big corporation like Lowe’s, Kellogg’s, or Procter and Gamble is going to put out millions in sponsorship money if the driver doesn’t have a squeaky-clean image?
