As if “woke” pro sports teams weren’t bad enough, the NCAA decided to get in on the act.
Can’t we just enjoy sports for the love of the game?
Not now that the NCAA just decided to ruin college sports too with this decision.
With the ongoing COVID-19 panic and the fear-mongering media, most sports fans are hoping there will even be college sports in 2020-21.
But the NCAA just decided the most important thing to do was allow college athletes to wear a “commemorative patch” on the front and back of their jerseys in support of social justice issues.
“The patch on the front, which most sports already allowed, as authorized by the school or conference, may be a commemorative/memorial patch (names, mascots, nicknames, logos and marks) intended to celebrate or memorialize people, events or other causes,” the NCAA said in a news release.
“The patch must not exceed 2¼ square inches and must be placed on the front or sleeve of the uniform. While not all team members are required to wear the patch, they must be identical for those who choose to wear them.
“The second location is on the back of the uniform where the player name is traditionally located and, as authorized by the school or conference, will allow names/words intended to celebrate or memorialize people, events or other causes. The names or words may vary by team member.”
There was no word on whether there is a pre-approved list of words or names to choose from for the second location.
Even if not, you can imagine “Free Hong Kong” won’t be a popular choice in NCAA basketball if the player hoped to move on to the NBA.
This decision by the NCAA makes college sports the latest to be ruined by “woke” SJW politics.
