Americans have Negativity towards Pro Sports in America



"I Don't Blame The, In Fact I'm One of Them. 
American Professional Sports DISGUSTS Me" !




"Pro Sports is Filled with a Bunch of Grossly Over-Paid Crybaby Prima Donna Athletes "


I't's Time for a Change. I wish all professional sports in America would implode, the money these guys make is sinful. I'm hoping that the salaries of professional athletes in America will decrease by at least 60% in the next 10 Years. It's a sin for these guys to be paid such Obscene Amounts of Money, when nurses all over the country are risking their lives for a measly few hundred dollars a year, just to barely survive, pay the rent, and put food on the table, and Americans support professional athletes make tens of millions of dollars a year, it's absolutely deplorable. And it's the Fans who pay their salaries, not the owners. When it comes down to it, the fans are the ones paying. How can people be so stupid. They should not support these people (over-paid pro athletes). If Americans were smart, they would Boycott all of professional sports, and just watch amateur athletics. Don't go to games at the stadium and pay $100 plus for a seat, $10 for a Beer, and $6 for a Hot Dog, and maybe $40 to park your car. Stop buying Jerseys that cost $100 or $150, you are contributing to the insanity of the absurd salaries these people make. Hey, I've got nothing against someone making money. But what's wrong with 2 or 3 million dollars a year? That's not enough? I think it is. No, they prima donna's are making 20, 30, 40 Million Dollars a year. This is ludicrous.

I was an avid sports fan for years, at least 25. But when Major League Baseball Players went on strike two times in 5 years, it disgusted me, and I did what I wish at least 70% of American sports fans would have done, I boycotted baseball. I wouldn't go to a game and I wouldn't watch any. I was done. Before this I used to watch the Met's and Yankee's all the time on TV, and my brother Jimmy and I used to got to at least a dozen Met games a year. Not once this guys started getting greedy, I quit. I had it with baseball. I still watched NFL Football. But I even got tired of that after a while and stopped watching all pro sports except: Pro Tennis, The Olympics (my favorite), and World Cup Soccer, the last two came around only once every 4 years, so I almost completely cut sports out of my life for more than 5 years. It's only recently that I started watching sports a little again, but I never would watch an entire game any more, just doesn't interest me that much. There are a lot better things in life to do than waste 100 of hours a year watching dumb sporting events. I've had it. And guess what, I really don't miss it. I'm not that dumb to support these grossly over-paid people. I wish, some how the money could go to the needy, and people who are just trying to get by, instead of paying people 100s of Millions of dollars over there careers, and there are children starving in America. Professional Sports in America is deplorable. 

Americans' opinion of the sports industry has plunged in the past year, according to a recent Gallup poll. Of the 25 U.S. industry sectors examined, only the federal government (-20) and the pharmaceutical industry (-15) had a worse net negative rating than the sports industry (-10). In fact, more people had a very positive or somewhat positive view on pharmaceuticals (34) than the sports industry (30).

POLL: What are you more afraid of?
A two-week polling sample from August 2019 was compared to a two-week sample in August 2020, and Americans' opinion of the sports industry declined drastically. There was a drop of 15 points in people who had a very or somewhat positive view of the sports industry, which edged out the travel industry that fell 11 points for the bottom spot.

Based on the recent survey of 1,031 American adults, only 30% of people view the sports industry in a positive light, compared to 40% of Americans who have a negative point of view. In 2019, 45% of Americans held positive feelings for the sports industry and only 25% viewed it negatively.

The nosedive in favorability comes as sports leagues have embraced social justice movements, including Black Lives Matter. The backlash is evident in political bases with positive views from Republicans crashing from +11 in 2019 to -35 in 2020, a devastating 46-point drop. Independents are also shunning sports; going from +26 in 2019 to -10 in 2020, a significant 36-point decrease. Democrats saw a slight decrease from +16 positive rating to a +11 rating.
Non-whites Americans' positive opinions of the sports industry plummeted from +51 last year to only +16 this year, a 35-point decline. White Americans went from +4 in 2019 to -22 in 2020, a 26-point drop in positive outlook.
"Sports has been acutely affected by the twin events steering news and culture in 2020: the pandemic and the renewed movement for racial justice," Gallup wrote. "The sports industry's relationship with fans has been disrupted by the need to shrink its seasons and schedules and play to empty venues as a means of keeping fans and players safe."
"At the same time, the greater social and political activism of players and, in some cases now, coaching staffs and entire leagues appears to have turned off Americans who disagree with their messages or the way they express them," the article read. "The net effect at this point has been negative for the industry's image."
TV ratings also show fans' frustrations in sports this year. The NFL suffered a double-digit ratings drop for its season opener that featured an overwhelming amount of social justice activism.
NBA ratings are down 20% during the playoffs. One poll found that 38% of fans are not watching the NBA because it's "too political."





Mickey Mantle

The most Money The Great Mickey Mantle made was $125,000 a Year


Professional Sports in America Disgust Me ! The obscene amounts of Money these Over-Paid Prima Donnas make is disgusting. We're in a Pandemic and you have 100,000 of nurses who risked (and even lost) their lives for a few hundred dollars a week, and you give Grown Men 10s of Millions of Dollars a year to Play Child's Games. There's Something Wrong Here? It's appalling, disgusting, and Sinful. "I Wish Professional Sports Would Implode" and the prima donnas (pro athletes) Salaries would Drop by at leats 60% ... It's time for a Correction. LOWER SALARIES for Pro ATHLETES !! Please !!
