There are a lot of issues in the world that need talking about today. There is a proper place and time to discuss these issues. One of the great things about sports is that it allows an "escape" from the real world's problems. For a couple of hours when a game is played, you can find joy in rooting for your team, and experience camaraderie with people from different races, cultures, political affiliations and religions. You used to be able to "take a break" from hearing about political opinions, approaches and frustration when attending or watching a sporting event. However, now political opinions are openly being shared by players, coaches, and sports journalists and broadcasters. If a player or coach wants to take a knee during the National Anthem, stand on their head, shave their head, wear a wig or get a tattoo in the name of a political candidate or political movement, that is their right... but that doesn't mean that it needs to become news during the broadcast! We are sick of it! No matter what your political affiliation, sports fans are tired of hearing commentary during games, seeing post game "rants" by broadcasters about their political beliefs, having coaches and players interviewed about politics, etc. We would like the major professional sports leagues in the United States (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL), NCAA as well as ESPN and other major sports networks to instruct their broadcasters, journalists, and writers to cease political conversations, interviews and rhetoric and just stick to covering sports!!! We would like journalists, broadcasters and writers that cover the teams, events and venues to stop asking every athlete and coach to expand on their political views, and for these journalists, broadcasters and writers to stop offering their own political viewpoints during sports broadcasts and other sports related shows. Sporting events should be politics free!!
