Christine Brennan is a sports columnist for USA Today, a commentator on ABC News, CNN, PBS NewsHour and NPR, and a best-selling author. Wikipedia
She calls out the Big 10 for reversing course to actually have a football season, her opinion piece in the USA today starts out " Opinion: Big Ten’s decision to play football signals darkest day in conference’s sports history" . This from a conference that arguably has some of the worst sex scandals in the history of sports reporting, Penn State, MSU, OSU, and Michigan. She goes further to complain that the Big 10 has become the SEC (in her mind, a bunch of dumb hicks I suppose), this type of elitist bullshit only further divides and does nothing to help heal a ravaged country.
She goes on:
“While much of the blame for the awful about-face goes to the university presidents who chose money and football over sanity and caution, new Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren also contributed greatly to this public relations nightmare.”
With safety protocols in place, can we not carry on with life and shouldn’t schools be worried about the economy and their bottom line? Do they not have a right to play football?
Have we as a people become so entrenched in ideology that we have lost our collective minds on what can and can’t be done, safely, in order to move forward from (or with) Covid-19?
