There Are No Safe Spaces In Sports

Where real sports still exists:
The Sporting News did an in-depth profile of Whitlock and his show “Speak for Yourself” which he co-hosts alongside Colin Cowherd on FS1, discussing Whitlock’s desire to move away from the “Embrace Debate” style of sports television entertainment format which essentially involves two hosts screaming, gesticulating, and eyeing each other suspiciously.

The piece delves into Whitlock’s views on how ESPN’s political correctness runs counter to the true culture of sports. Whitlock explains, “Sports culture is not PC or far left. There are no safe spaces in the field of competition. I think we can differentiate ourselves from EPCN by discussing sports in a way that is authentic to sports culture and sports fans. You can be authentic without being distasteful or disrespectful. Sports culture has long been patriotic, tolerant of diverse backgrounds and perspective and celebratory of meritocracy.”
Are you ready for some triggering?
