I ask this as both a question, as well as what should be taken as an ominous warning to the entirety of professional sports…
Do actions have consequences? And if so, precisely what actions will be taken when multi-million $dollar salaries of sports figures, announcers, owners, media broadcasters and more have to not only ask, but contemplate the following:
What happens to all the “guaranteed” salaries, bonuses and more if no is willing to watch the political play on the field you have demanded? For bankruptcy court is the place where all those “guarantees” suddenly get nullified. And if fans either can’t return, or even more problematic, don’t return. The term “Red Zone” is going to take on a whole new meaning, even before it too is deemed offensive.
And here’s just one more that will surely follow the above: will the need for “bankruptcy protection” via the courts then be seen as a racist ploy to get out of said contracts?
Think about it.
