The decision comes after the NBA postponed all their Wednesday playoff games after players refused to play.

As I said with the NBA, this just doesn’t make sense to me at all. How does boycotting anything help the situation?

How does refusing to play in a game or refusing to practice help anything? The answer is that it doesn’t.

These are professional athletes. They’re paid to do a job, and that job is to win games. That’s what they’re experts on.

Some people might not like hearing that but it’s true. Let’s also stick to the facts of the situation that is being protested. The Wisconsin DOJ investigated the shooting of Jacob Blake, and he admitted to being armed. In the aftermath, Kenosha, Wisconsin, got torched to the ground.

What are we protesting here, folks? This doesn’t make sense at all. Unless pro athletes are going to start offering concrete solutions, then this situation is just a circus.

Sports should be about winning. They shouldn’t be about whatever sideshow we’re currently witnessing.
