I don’t watch much Pro American sport in any case. But news in recent weeks motivates quitting NFL, NBA and MLB completely. There’s too much monopoly, money and “tradition” for Pro sport to evolve for the better. Pro sport is DEAD to ME. 😦
Sadly, revoking the NFL Tax Exemption wouldn’t bring in much revenue. The NFL has plenty of lobbyists buying off Congress.
I’m going to end up supporting only athletes who are underpaid, none who are overpaid. 😦
Even as the league is under fire for its handling of domestic abuse, one of its biggest problems remains on the field. New NFL estimates project that up to a third of all retired players could develop some form of long-term cognitive problem — such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia — due to head injuries suffered in games.
NHL is Pro Canadian sport, of course. 🙂
