Finally, a pro athlete that realizes we don't tune into sports for political messages. Brett Favre steps up and points out the obvious. This is something not many pro athletes, current or former, are willing to do.
Favre appeared via video at a town hall with President Donald Trump on Sinclair Broadcast Group’s “America This Week” hosted by Eric Bolling. During the town hall, which aired Wednesday, Favre asked the president how professional athletes and teams can balance sports and social justice without losing their fan bases.
“The NBA and the NFL are struggling with lower ratings as fans clearly do not want political messaging mixed with their sports, so how should the leagues support and promote an anti-racism position without becoming political and alienating fans?” Favre asked.
Trump responded to Favre by saying that people want sports to remain about sports only. Most people use sports to escape from politics and they do not want those political or social justice issues distracting from the games, especially if the fans disagree with the stances of the participants.
“People don’t want to see all of the politics. They’ve got enough politics with me and with everybody else, and they don’t want to see it with football and sports on Sunday or whenever they happen to be watching,” Trump said. “I think it’s had a huge impact on sports, a huge negative impact on sports. I think the football ought to get back to football and basketball to basketball and let politics remain separate.”
