1. "Clipper Darrell" gets a free seat for his troubles, ask him when was the last time he paid to get in

2. The guy is stealing the intellectual property from the Clippers

3. You'd be upset if some dude came along bummed your logo and threw him name on it without you getting your cut.

4. Go to this guys website and look at all the crap he is selling, put yourself in the clippers shoes and ask what you would do to him after you've asked nicely not to do this and he continues to sell stuff he has no right to sell. Remember he already gets in for free to every home game.

what many of you might not understand is that when a person is making public appearances and statements with an affiliation with a company or organization, much like Mr. Bailey, those companies and organizations can then become liable if lawsuits or something were to arise. And he's making money off of his own affiliation with them which, without their permission, is by definition illegal.

"We hold all of our fans in the highest esteem and we have been patient and generous with Mr. Bailey. He has not returned our support in an honorable way. He is not actually a fan of the Clippers, but a fan of what he can make off of the Clippers. We are no longer interested in that kind of association with him, and that is why we accepted his offer to remove our team name from his stage name."

Why Not Make Him Like An Honorary Mascot Or Something?

Their FANBASE Loves Him..THEIR PLAYERS LOVE HIM...People Of OTHER FANBASES LOVE HIM....

They Didn't Say THEY ONLY Want Him To Stop Selling Merchandise With Their Name & Logo...They Said They Wanted Him To Pretty Much Change His Whole Life Since His House/Car/Clothes & Damn Near Everything About Him Is Clippers...

So They Could Put Up With That Shit WHEN THEY WERE ABSOLUTE LOSERS But Now That They Have A Winning Season & Are Considered Contenders, He's A Problem? HAHAHA

The Clippers Just Being Bitches About It...He Was There When They Were Nothing So They Can't Say He Just Hopped On The Bandwagon & Tried To Reap Success Off Them WHEN THEY DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A SOLID FANBASE TILL THIS YEAR...What Bout The Other 10-11 Years He Was There?

If He Wanted COMMERCIAL SUCCESS, I'm Pretty Sure He Would've Been LAKER Darrell...

So For The Management To Say Such A Thing & Then Portray The Guy As Some Villain Just Looking To Capitalize On Them Is Absolute BS...

If He Isn't A REAL FAN Then I Really Don't Know WTF Is...Haha

Of all the organizations in professional sports, the Los Angeles Clippers should know better than to test fate, to mess with karma and to upset the balance of the basketball world.

They know better than anyone what life is like on the wrong side of good fortune. That’s why their decision to apparently ban the one and only Clipper Darrell from using the first name of his moniker stinks.

Clipper Darrell (sorry folks, but we can call him whatever we want around here) revealed on his blog today that he was “DEVASTATED!!!” when he was told by Clippers’ management to stop using the nickname:

I don’t care what their reasoning might be, “Clippers’ management” is just flat wrong on this one. Clipper Darrell has been the one constant for the organization throughout the doldrums of the past decade and a half.

As much as it for is for Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and the rest of the current Clippers, this should be his time. This is the season, the team and potentially the era he’s been living for. To have his identity snatched away like this … it’s just wrong!

The Clippers need to do right by Clipper Darrell and allow him enjoy this season and this team in peace.

Paul, Griffin and Clippers’ center DeAndre Jordan have already expressed their support (via Twitter) for the league’s most popular superfan. You can expect the rest of the basketball world to stand up do the same before this is all over, Clippers’ management …

… released a statement insisting they have done nothing wrong in regards to the man also known as Darrell Bailey, calling his claims “absurd and unfounded.”

The statement, courtesy of the Orange County Register:

We’re going to respectfully disagree with the Clippers on this one, because they had no problem with Clipper Darrell doing his thing when they were at the bottom of the Western Conference standings on a regular basis. Now that they’re near the top, they don’t want him to do his thing?

Again, it’s just wrong!

lol who cares?

U Gotta Understand...That Guy Was Rooting For That Weak Ass Team Like They Were Champs EVEN THOUGH THEY NEVER WERE & WERE @ THE BOTTOM OF THE LEAGUE FOR SO LONG...

To Tell Him He Has To Change A Name That The Media Gave Him For His Undying Support For Such A Pathetic Franchise & Tell Him That He Can't Even Wear His Suit To The Games Anymore Is Just BS...Haha

I Understand Not Letting Him Sell Merchandise But They Killed The Whole Image & That Guy's Spirit...I Wouldn't Be Suprised If The Clips Started Losing A Few Games That They Shouldn't... :lol:

Fan Support Is A Major Issue @ Home Games.....& That's Why OKC Does So Well...They Fans Go Crazy @ Home...
