As predicted when Harvey Weinstein first made news for being a letch, the sexual harassment hysteria that is sweeping the nation has now officially hit the sports world like a ton of bricks. This time the NFL Network, ESPN, and 81-year old Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson have found themselves on the wrong end of accusations from former female employees.
Without discussing the merits of the above-mentioned allegations, as we really don’t know the full facts, being the grump that I am, I am well past tired of the endless one-way sexual harassment/assault news stories that have been dominating all forms of media the last few months, both in the sports world and elsewhere.
Media, both social and otherwise, expect us to drool like Pavlov’s dog each time they report some new salacious allegations. I won’t dance to their tune and am politically incorrect enough to have some healthy skepticism. I’m also politically incorrect enough to point out truisms of our current sexual harassment crisis that no one dares to mention publicly:
Brace yourself for the social justice to come: it won’t be just and will also be downright anti-social. Circling back to the world of sports, within one day of allegations against Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson he announced he was selling the team that he brought to Charlotte in 1995. Not to worry. Sean Combs, aka P. Diddy, aka Puff Daddy, plans to buy the Panthers. His motivation for buying the team? “I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year’s starting quarterback.” Oh yes, he also wants to make the halftime show a higher priority. If all of this is supposed to be progress, please put me in the #NotMeToo category.
