It rings like navel-gazing nonsense to me. Sports are a business like any other. The sports industry employs many, many people and contributes a ton to the economy. Many peoples livelihoods depend on sports. Like any other business, if a sport passes a certain threshold of safety then it should be allowed to return; to treat the sports industry as a sacrificial lamb, to make the lives of the countless number of people involved in sports worse, as part of some bizarre punishment to society would be nothing short of criminal.As major league pitcher Sean Doolittle said
And that rings true.
