The NHL, which was the last bastion of true sport that hadn’t been corrupted by political grandstanding, has finally fallen.

When the NHL started back up after COVID, people admired the fact that players did not choose to protest during the National Anthem. Now, the NHL has caved to the Black Lives Matter cause.

The NHL have cancelled their August 27th game due to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, who was shot in the back after resisting arrest, fighting officers, being tased, and reaching into his car, where he admitted that he had a knife.

This is most likely in reaction to the NBA’s decision to cancel yesterday’s games after the Milwaukee Bucks refused to play, protesting against police brutality in relation to Blake’s shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Several NBA teams followed suit, causing the entire league to make the decision to postpone games. The NHL held a “moment of reflection” yesterday before game 3 the Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning’s series, but apparently that wasn’t enough.

The official decision was announced by SportsCenter on Twitter:

The Philadelphia Flyers were scheduled to play against the New York Islanders at 7 p.m. and the Vancouver Canucks and Las Vegas Golden Knights were up next at 9:45 p.m.

Many sports fans are angry about the amount of politics being injected into sports, which a lot of people watch to relax and take their mind off of what is going on in the world right now.

  1. The violent Junior High School Mobs are replacing the NHL and spectator Hockey with Riots and Mass Murders as the New Spectator and active sport for America.

  2. Now I am officially DONE with the NHL!
    I could see cancelling games because an innocent black school kid was gunned down in Chicago but not because a career criminal gets shot deserving or not!

  3. BYE BYE NHL $ BYE BYE NBA $ A SPECIAL BYE BYE TO BOTH MLB $ THE MSL <THEY WERE LOSING FANS WITHOUT BEING IDIOTS, now nobody cares.

  4. Time to stop all Sports that back this nonsense. When do employees get to tell employers how to do their business. Disgusted with all of the Sports People, Hollywood, Media and Democrats, for aiding and abetting criminal behavior in order to divide the country, let them all go look for another job and for God’s Sake Owners show who’s the Boss. Politics have no place in the work place, do whatever you want on your own time.

  5. All of these racist individuals and the cowards who support them should all be fired. These punks are paid millions and millions of dollars to do their jobs. Not to push their hurt feelings on the public. If I walked off the job in protest I wouldn’t have employment any longer. Please boycott ALL punkfessional sports
