I suppose you condone this vile ticket profiling. Itís discrimination, and it needs to stop. Anyone should be able to enter and enjoy the game. Whatís wrong with you tickist people?

Supporting criminal terrorist from Mexico is wrong.

The MAJORITY of people who live in Arizona and the rest of America SUPPORT the new bill, why on earth would the Suns be so stupid and support illegal criminals is beyond any understanding.

I SAY BOYCOTT THE SUNS for being anti American.
god, is there something wrong with me?!!!! I actually agree with sunny days. I feel like I need to see a psych now.

If it comes down to a choice between secure borders or the Phoenix Suns, a secure border is always going to win. Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver should not be using athletes for his own personal political agenda.

I'm frankly tired of the millionaire celebrities and sports figures trying to influence those of us who live in the "REAL WORLD".
AMEN. They should have stayed out of this.

No need to bring out the race card. I am mexican-american and FOR AZ's new law. After living in so cal for 15 years and seeing firsthand what the illegals did to it, I don't want the rest of the country to end up like that. I am a taxpaying American and feel that this law needs to be given a chance to work. if it does lead to extensive racial profiling of mexican americans, then it should be abolished. but we should give it a chance.

Did you guys know that the Suns always had that jersey though? The media is trying to make it look like The Suns are only doing this to protest the law, but they have been using that jersey to recognize their latino community for some time now.

Spurs liked the idea, but it was too late for them to get an approval from the league office.

I feel sorry for you.

It was fine until Suns owner made the statement on Tuesday
"Mr. Sarver called Arizona's new immigration law flawed"

And


"There is a political statement, and that is that we felt like however well intended, the law was not right Ö but it raises a couple of important, really important issues," said Suns General Manager Steve Kerr. "One is just human rights, constitutional rights in our country which are so important to the United States, and two is the economic impact its having on our state we're losing a lot of business a lot of jobs."

Seems to me Sarver & Kerr have not taken the time to read the LAW
