Is sports going the way of Hollywood? Jun 28, 2020 15:15:53 GMT

Hollywood has lost steam the last few years because they started interjecting political viewpoints into everything. Now we are seeing the same happen in ALL sports.
The latest bit of news is that the NBA will allow players to put social messages on their jerseys where their names would be, so expect a lot of BLM patches. Their shortened season starts at the end of July I believe.
Personally, I don't want basketball players that have made millions their whole lives pursuing political narratives. If you don't know by now, it's been proven that A) Black Lives Matter is an actual corporation, B) donating money to Black Lives Matter goes through a company called ActBlue, and C) ActBlue sends tons of money to the democratic party candidates. So how is supporting Black Lives Matter actually helping out black communities again?
So anyways, I see BLM as supporting one half of burning down cities and looting, and the other half as propping up democratic candidates. This is no doubt an antagonistic political movement.
So why the hell would I want to sit down and watch Lebron James (who is starting his own media company), walk around the court like a primadonna?
I'm beyond done with professional sports. No NBA. No NFL. And if I had ever watched soccer, I'd probably be quitting that too.
All of his has gone from ridiculous to beyond-stupid.
College football is having stupid issues as well, as "Woke" attacks on the Longhorn fightsong, no more Gator Chomp, Oregon-Oregon State renaming their "Civil War" game, the Mike Gundy garbage, and Kansas State players refusing to play until some student is removed from campus for his tweets.
Why are athletes running the country now?
I will try and hold on to my love for college football and college sports, but it's becoming much harder.
By the way, Clay Travis is having some interesting shows lately. His show is a great alternative to ESPN coverage, which is turned into utter crap.
I don't usually listen to him, but it is refreshing to see someone attempt to hold on to truth
