Default Let's boycott ALL pro sports?

After the recent stunt by the NBA, I'm done with all pro sports.
Does anyone else feel this way?

I have for years. They are over paid and no respect for our country.

Same. They're just a business.

Boycotted all over the last few years. Baseball was my last hold out and they lost this year.

Stopped watching years ago and dont miss it at all. The teams should stop paying them immediately. I'm sure there are millions of people out there who would be willing to take 50k a year to play a game. No need for millions in salaries.

Sadly, yes. Still watching the UFC and praying Dana White keeps it clean.

Realize how they are all about social justice until it costs them money. "Boycotting" doesn't cost them a penny. This wasn't random, this was discussed with the NBA as a marketing PR move way ahead of time. You can tell by the way they were framing every interview the last couple weeks.

If any of these players truly believed in social justice, put their money where their mouth is. Isn't it great to be lectured by Hollywood celebrity athletes with hundreds of millions in the bank about how they are oppressed and how the working class is privileged?
