NFL legend Brett Favre created a firestorm recently when he argued that politics is ruining pro sports, saying:
“I know when I turn on a game . . . I want to watch all the important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside of the game, and I think the general fan feels the same way. I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, ‘I don’t watch anymore; it’s not about the game anymore.’ And I tend to agree.”
For his comments, Favre was immediately attacked by sportswriters for spewing “privileged, narrow-minded, anti-Black rhetoric.”
Starting with Colin Kaepernick’s infamous anthem-kneeling in 2016, left-wing politics saturate virtually every American professional sport league today. NFL and MLB sports teams are changing their mascots, NBA stars are ginning up hate against police, the NFL is painting left-wing slogans on their fields, and Major League Baseball even moved the All-Star game out of Georgia to protest efforts to crack down on voter fraud.
