Mookie Betts recently signed a $365 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers (which is actually an extension that will pay him over $400 million over a 13-year period). He then went out on opening day and took a knee for the national anthem. Do I need this? No, I don't. My MLB season was over on the day it began. NBA teams, their coaches and even the officials all took a knee for the national anthem to re-start the season. Most people watch sports as an escape from current events. Yet we now have social justice messages on the court and players are allowed to have messages on their jerseys. Will the NFL be the next league to self-destruct?
