Don’t give a shit about the politics, don’t know why any other sports fans do either.
I watch sports to be entertained by athletic competition. I couldn’t care less what they do before or after the games in regards to protests, anthem kneeling etc. It’s a free country, they can do what they want within the confines of the law.
The stuff that turns me off is the hypocrisy of people like Stephen Jackson with him supporting DeSean Jackson’s anti-Semitic rhetoric. Stuff like kneeling, raising a fist or painting BLM on the court doesn’t bother me one bit. All the power to them if they want to get a peaceful message across. It doesn’t effect their ability to play a sport in my eyes.
I’m preparing for two months of sporting bliss with the NBA and NHL playoffs. MLB looks to be finished within a week or so unfortunately, probably the same fate the NFL will suffer so I’m going to enjoy these next two months since this will likely be the last sports we see for a while once they end in early October.
