Anyone wonder why interest in sports continues to slide?

It's not due to politics, although politics has contributed.

My 18-year-old son has no interest in sports, despite my being a fanatical Ohio State Football fan. He just doesn't care. He has many more entertainment options than I did when I was his age.

It's a mix isn't it? Speaking for one I lost interest exactly because of politics. I'll watch occasionally, it's just not the same. My step-father was a HUGE Ohio State FF. It's the only game he'd watch. His alma mater.

There are multiple factors that contribute to waning interest in sports although Wokeism is definitely a factor. It has also ruined late night TV comedy. There is nothing more unfunny than pompous hating Wokesters. USMB is a perfect example of that.

Most don't watch TV and younger generation has no patience to sit and watch a sporting event. At best they'll just watch thr highlights on YouTube.

The only wonder is that it ever got so big and that it remains so at all. Watching overpaid egocentrics making each other rich eventually loses appeal.

I think this is it. Yeah, there are those who want to inject politics into sports. But it is always during pre-game stuff or after the game is over.

I am a fanatical Alabama Crimson Tide fan, and have been since the 1960s. I rarely watch anything until the opening kickoff. No politics. Just good football.

For people who "don't care" about sports, you guys seem to spend a lot of time thinking about it.
You just can't yourself, can you?

Sports interest in Millennial, and Gen Z was waning prior to the whole full on 'woke' thing came onto the scene.

However, I think this woke faggotry is ruining it for older sports fans.

They are STILL kneeling before soccer matches in Europe. They will probably always kneel, why? Cause some knee grow porn star, criminal died.

The NBA, NFL, and MLB are still actively engaged, and also promote full on queer.

It's a plan to destroy culture, that is all it is. Socialism 101.

I don't wonder at all, I know.

Soon as you start injecting personal, political and social agendas, woke shit, cancel culture, america haters, BLM, and so on into anything I stop being involved in it. Movies, stores, games, sports, tv shows, etc.
