This is friggin great. We need to support this all over the US, English is the language of the business all over the world. It’s nice to see someone standup to all this PC junk, unfortunately I’m sure they’ll cave and revoke this rule 🙁
If you watch any sports shows, you’ll hear about this: link 1, link 2, link 3.
I support it.

I think that the LPGA’s decision smacks of xenophobia.
At least the Beijing Olympics appointed an Esperanto translator, and CRI broadcast daily, about the Games, in this language.

that is unfortunate. and a little strange actually. after all, the nba itself appears to be looking to the growing chinese market, as it looks to increase its audience. so this emphasis on english at this point in time feels somewhat behind the times. not to mention the potential for a pr nightmare here.

English is basically the universal language anyway. It seems rather natural that it should be the default langauge.
