Professional sports leagues seem determined to alienate their longtime fans.
From embracing Black Lives Matter to championing other woke causes, the Left has appeared to seize the executive offices of nearly every major sport.
Now this major sports league just announced they were committing suicide with this decision.
Professional sports aren’t what they used to be.
The NFL has become the pansy football league as everything is a flag and you can’t hit anymore.
Texans DT Maliek Collins was called for roughing the passer on this play. Two refs immediately threw flags.
We see calls like this way too often.

And the NBA has gone so woke that it is just unbearable to watch now.

But of all the leagues trying to drive away their fan base, no other sports league comes close to NASCAR.
Just a decade ago, NASCAR races used to have stands filled with fans.

But now NASCAR can’t even give away tickets to get fans to show up.
And the biggest reason for that is the league’s embrace of the idea that their fan base shouldn’t even exist.
When your fan base is generally southern or middle American families who believe in the greatness of our nation, it might not be a good move to make Black Lives Matter a sponsor for the league.
“We raised so much awareness and that is the first step. That is the first step of getting people aware of what is going on and the change that needs to happen.” – NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace on racing in a car with a Black Lives Matter paint scheme https://t.co/jbzaQuRHuq pic.twitter.com/hjGhJKctCV

But of everything NASCAR has embraced, this could be the final nail in the coffin for them.
NASCAR just tweeted out a picture of the league’s logo in the rainbow LGBT flag.
NEWS: @CLGBTCC announces partnership with NASCAR.

And NASCAR gleefully announced that they are sponsoring an event with the Carolinas LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce this upcoming season.
Brandon Thompson, NASCAR’s Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion, claimed in a statement that “NASCAR is excited to partner with the Carolinas LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce. With NASCAR offices and much of our industry based in the Carolinas, we look forward to working with CLGBTCC in support of its mission to foster equity, inclusion and economic prosperity for the LGBTQ community.”
Honestly, the fact that such a Vice President position even exists within NASCAR is damaging enough.
It’s truly sad to watch NASCAR implode like this.
And this could be the thing that does in NASCAR for good.
