There are very few occupations more useless than sports reporting. Grown, usually old men getting excited about sports is kind of a pathetic endeavor. Since their lives have no meaning, they find acceptance by bashing people with whom they disagree. To wit…
NBC Sports Pro Football Talk turned into a venue for bashing Donald Trump and conservatives when Mike Florio and Chris Simms said they had to expose “hypocritical sports fans” and media personalities.
At issue was the friction between the NFL Players Coalition and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who hosted a fundraiser for the Republican president. Players Coalition members pressured Ross to step down from a social justice working group due to his fundraising efforts.
Almost every owner in the NFL is a rabid leftist who pours tons of money into Democrat coffers, yet these empty talking heads only speak up when a conservative holds a fundraiser. Funny how that works.
“I would love to stick to sports. Some times politics gets yanked onto sports,” Mr. Florio said. “We hear all the time, players and reporters, stick to sports. Well, is it fair, Chris, to turn it around on the owners and tell them to stick to sports? Stephen Ross isn’t sticking to sports when he decided to host a $100,000, up to $250,000 per person fundraiser for the president. That’s not sticking to sports. But nobody ever says that he should stick to sports.”
“He’s rich and he’s white,” Mr. Simms said of Ross.
So are you, Simms, you douchebag. You’re rich, and you’re the whitest thing I have ever seen. Powder looks like Billy Dee Williams standing next to you.
Look, I understand millionaire leftists hate themselves for their white privilege, but it’s ridiculously hypocritical to call out someone who is in your own tax bracket. The difference between Florio, Simms and most of the 2020 Democratic candidates is some people actually care what the candidates think.
