At what point in the WNBA decision making process did these woke social justice warriors ever factor in how walking off the court before the national anthem was played may have alienated their ultimate paymasters – the crowd?
Watching sports used to be all about being a distraction from the grind of life. To zone out for several hours watching professional sports stats entertain. No thoughts about work, horrible bosses or financial pain. Just fun.
Now the politics in sport have become a bigger feature than the game itself. Perhaps these teams should back themselves in their ability to read the tolerance levels of their fans and require they wear BLM adorned clothing as a condition of entry.
We will have absolutely zero sympathy if these sporting codes collapse or find themselves in severe financial distress as a consequence of capitulating to this insidious ideology and biting the hand that feeds them.
