- Uniforms on NBA, NFL and likely MLB to be social justice billboards – but only leftist messages approved so far
- Where’s the revenue stream in that!

Mookie Betts was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Los Angeles Dodgers on February 10. He signed an extension worth $365 million over 12 years with L.A on July 22.
Betts received a $65 million signing bonus, the largest in the sport’s long history.
He won the American League MVP in 2018, and he’s a four-time Gold Glove winner. He’s also a perennial all-star and widely considered the second best player in MLB, behind Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels.
On July 23, every player from both games played on Opening Day took a knee before the anthem in a show of solidarity. However, Betts (and a couple players from the San Francisco Giants) took a knee during the anthem.

According to NBC Sports, members of the Giants took a knee during the national anthem, and Coonrod didn’t join them. Every member of both teams also kneeled before the anthem. The pitcher also didn’t participate in that action. The reason why? His Christian faith. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

How they lean toward Marxism and they’ve said some negative things about the nuclear family. I just can’t get on board with that,” Coonrod explained to the media, according to the same NBC Sports report.
