Extended RNF: Sports world up in arms for the moment, but soon will return to business as usual.

Young men line up to be picked through, bid upon, signed, given finite means disguised as riches by those with true wealth, then played, traded and thrown aside without a second thought once no longer of any value to the entities in power. Nothing personal Sonny, strictly business. (M. Corleone) All for the amusement of the masses until someone occasionally slips and exposes the unpleasant underbelly of it all. Yes, let’s all engage in verbal fisticuffs regarding who is the premiere player at a given moment or of all time while few can name their local elected officials. By the by did you get the latest jersey or wildly overpriced kicks? More about class than race. All are free to be distracted by matters of no real consequence in the grand scheme… Back to the task at hand. There will be much hype and bluster, someone will be sacrificed on the media alter of capitalism and then business will continue as usual. But what do I know. I do not really follow sports. -ELW
