Hey “Professional athletes”….Shut up and do your job. Your job, for which you are paid VERY WELL, no, let me rephrase that….for which you are OVER PAID, is to play the sport you were hired to play. Yes, that’s right, you were HIRED to play a sport. Not to protest societal issues. You are paid by your fans who expect you to perform in the athletic event you are supposed to be good at. I, as a spectator pay good, hard earned money, for now, to watch you entertain me. When you chose not to do your job in lieu of staging a boycott, you are boycotting the people who pay your grotesquely obscene salaries and deny them the right to that entertainment. I for one as a spectator, each time a scheduled game does not appear because you chose to take a day off under the guise of “protest” am realizing more and more that I can get along just fine without your entertainment. You probably subscribe to the old adage; “No justice no peace”. Well maybe you should consider the ramifications of a new adage; “ No fans, NO SALARY” That’s right. Continue with your nonsense and you won’t have enough fans to support your ridiculous salaries. Then you’ll have plenty of time to protest and boycott, because you will be out of a job.
Wise up, there are plenty of athletes currently not quite good enough to fill your shoes at the salary you are paid. But they are certainly good enough to entertain and are just dying to get the opportunity, and I venture a guess, would be willing to keep their mouth shut at work to get the chance.
Perhaps sports fans everywhere should just stop supporting your salaries, stop paying absurd ticket prices, stop paying for ridiculously priced cable sports packages, stop buying over-priced sports apparel and memorabilia, stop supporting YOU. Perhaps we, as fans, should boycott YOU and DEFUND PROFESSIONAL SPORTS.
Hey, “Professional athletes”, shut up and just do it, your job that is.
