COVID-19: MLB Players Arguing Revenue Sharing During Pandemic is Bad Optics

Colin Cowherd: “It’s really not good optics to argue revenue sharing during a pandemic with 20% unemployment coming… That’s the hill you’re going to die on? That for 80 games during a pandemic you’re going to say ‘it sort of feels like a salary cap'?? I’m the least surprised in the world that with baseball it came down to money. The NFL does a really good job selling itself as the sport for fans, the NBA sells itself as the sport built around stars… Too often baseball’s message is ‘It’s all about the money.’ When you’re going through a crisis right now and you’re a sport, you probably don’t want to talk a ton about money when you see what is happening to most Americans… This is like the Kardashians complaining that their second valet didn’t show up to take them to a private airport. NOBODY wants to hear this… There’s a time and a place to argue about wealth, but this is not a great sport for that.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks it was terrible optics for the Major League Baseball Players Association to push back so vehemently against the owners’ unfurling of a plan to begin the 2020 season, as both sides continue to be deadlocked over the proposed revenue split.

Check out the video above as Colin details why this isn’t really the right time to be fighting over money so publicly during a pandemic when tens of millions of Americans are without jobs, and struggling just to pay their rent and keep up with their mortgages.
