Professional sports and the athletes in pro sports are becoming more woke these days. Some think it could hurt sports as an industry.
The NBA will allow social justice messaging on player jerseys. The NFL will play the black national anthem before games. Breitbart's Warner Todd Huston explains what their motives are.
"The leagues and the owners are all bowing to the players who want to have these platforms. I think a lot of it has to do with the unions as well," Huston said.
And if it continues, he says pro sports could be in trouble.
"If we can use NFL ratings as an indications it's very possible they could stay away. Ratings were down in 2017 and 2018, but they came back when the NFL distanced itself from social messaging in 2019," Huston explained, adding it's something that won't happen when pro sports returns from COVID-19
