Wow!

Super awesome investigation by Ramona Shelburne. These Sterling affairs were a lot of learning. I am looking forward the next season.

Excellent Podcast

I don't follow any sports but love this podcast. The behind the scenes information is outstanding. The most recent Sterling Affairs finally prompted me to write a review. It is addictive!

The Sterling Affair

I don’t like writing this because I like Ramona Shelburne and this was a great series for the most part but episode 5 paints Sterling’s ex-wife as a plucky oppressed woman who saved the day by outmaneuvering Sterling to sell the team and make them even richer. This woman was complicit in Sterling’s racism for decades going so far as to lie to his black tenants (also impersonating a city employee) in the hopes of finding a reason to evict them. This is not a helpless “me too” type victim of her husband’s evil. I think it’s weird that Shelburne goes to so much lengths to humanize and sanitize this person, taking a story about racism and trying to turn it into a story about a billionaire wife with a heart of gold. If she wanted to humanize someone she should have started with his many victims (e.g. players, former tenants). Why is it in every story about racism (covered by a white journalist) we hear how hard the fallout was for the racists and never what happened to the victims? You wouldn’t write a story about how hard it’s been for OJ but this stuff happens all the time. Disappointing.
