Deep Dive: Criticism of Sports Returning

Deep Dive: Criticism of Sports Returning

Charlie Abt

While I definitely think sports should be played, and there are many people who agree with me, some strongly disagree and believe they should not be played at all. Their main reason for why sports should not be played is that they think it is simply not safe. Another main reason they have is that the professional sports leagues have been testing their players every day, and they wonder if those tests would be more beneficial had they just purchased those tests and given them to cities. I personally disagree with that as tests that state facilities administer are already free to people, and there are other options for tests. Sports have brought back a sense of normalcy to life. With many people struggling in many different ways, they have given people a couple of hours every day where they can almost withdraw themselves from the current situation and have a slight amount of normalcy brought back to their lives.
