Can professional sports get any more bizarre? They’re butting heads with each other, doping scandals, fans, officials, even horses aren’t safe from professional heads geared at asserting their point. So, what do “we the fans” have so say or do about it, since we’ve neither voice nor vote in the inner circles of professional sports entertainment? Should we just laugh it off, keep paying, attending, watching and cheering from the stands or our lazy boys? It’s probably always been “just the few”, but those “few” and their incidents are becoming pervasive in just about every major sporting event. A call to return to innocence seems somehow trite and futile. But I would be less than honest to say I’ve seriously considered returning my interest, attendance and watching of any sport to the children’s local level of play. But then there are the parents who project their former glory days on their kids with a “win at any cost” mentality? So, have we created this monster? Are we to ride it all the way down, suck it up while we grin and bear it? That’s life? Granted, to be disillusioned means there were illusions to be reckoned with in the first place. But I’m still naïve enough and sports’ purist enough to think there are a large number of fans “out there” who truly love their particular sport just for the love of the game. If these present day antics were just a passing, temporary bump in the road in sport, any point of being concerned might well be moot. Will it get better? How? And what are the fans to do, if anything at all?
