NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders informed media members, athletes and former athletes he doesn’t give a damn what they think when it comes to sports in general.
“Prime Time” went to Twitter with no regrets tweeting how opting out doesn’t affect the businesses but only the athletes.
Sanders does have a point from a financial perspective if you look at what COVID-19 has done to the economy. If you’re working a job and decided to quit, the company you were employed by will still go on without you and hire new workers. It’s no different than replacing talent with better talent or talent that works hard to make it into the pros.
Where Sanders is most certainly wrong is valuing sports over people’s decisions on health. Athletes who are trying their best to not catch the coronavirus understands it’s just a matter of time before someone test positive again despite restarts or scheduled gameplay returns. Sanders is cut differently and no one can question his drive and work ethic to be great. If anything is bigger than the game he’s referring to, he might want to have a conversation with athletes, living victims, and doctors who are fighting against COVID-19.
This is the same Sanders who believed Colin Kaepernick was wrong for kneeling yet couldn’t answer how he would’ve gone about kneeling a different way. More than likely Sanders would’ve done it the Karen way which is don’t kneel at all even if blacks call him a coon, sambo, or sellout.
The truth is the game will go on because billions will be made by white owners who desperately needed to bring back sports at a crucial time like this. As for Sanders, when he leaves this earth someday, he must remember too life and family will go on without him. Unlike sports which is a business, life is a journey and we all must pass over to the other side in those graves.
