I don’t know how many different ways we the people can tell these teams that we don’t want social justice and politics mixed into our sports entertainment before they actually listen.

So far, it’s not sinking in, despite the massive backlash, bad PR, plummeting ratings, and lost revenue.
I’m not sure if it’s that they legitimately don’t understand what’s going on, and believe there’s another reason for the loss of interest, or if they do know the “woke” stuff is toxic, but they think people will eventually “come around.”

I tend to think it’s the latter.
I believe that they’ve got a lot of “woke progressives” working in their HR and marketing departments, and that’s what’s fueling this.
But if they think Americans will “come around” to the “wokeness” in their sports, they may be in for a big shock.
Because once again, the American people have spoken loud and clear and just sent a big, bold message to the MLB.
Bizpacreview reported that Major League Baseball’s All-Star game is finding out the true meaning of “go woke, go broke” as their ratings plummeted to the second-lowest in history after relocating to Denver from Atlanta, costing black business owners millions of dollars.

Tuesday night’s Nielsen numbers depicting how many tuned in to the game were horrific. A dismal 8.24 million Americans watched the game which earns it the distinction of being the second-least-watched All-Star Game in history. Even with one of the most reportedly compelling lineups in years that included Los Angeles Angels’ Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani, people simply tuned out because of liberal politics. The ratings also included out-of-home viewing which was not taken into account in 2019 so the numbers are actually even worse than being reported. The game was not played in 2020 due to the pandemic.
In 1980, over 36 million Americans watched the game. In 2015, 11 million tuned in.
As you can see, this is a losing “game plan,” and yet, these sports teams keep doubling and tripling down on it.
But the American people aren’t backing down either.
So, it’s a stand-off at this point:
