People protest a lot of dumb stuff nowadays. Sure, some of it is honorable and respectable, but people have gotten way out of hand with it. I’m sure if we all sat around and shared dumb things we’ve seen protested, there would be some doozies.
In the world of sports, however, OutKick founder Clay Travis may have found the ultimate trump card.
During his radio show OutKick the Coverage on Tuesday, Clay shared what he described as the “singularly dumbest idea for a protest involving sports that I’ve ever heard of.” Seems bold, right? Well, wait until you hear it … you’ll understand.
A civil rights group is calling for the Masters to move the event from Augusta National in order to protest Georgia’s new voting law. Yes, folks, you read that correctly. Instead of simply telling you how idiotic that idea is, I’ll just let Clay do it.
“The stupidity is off the charts,” Clay said during the show. “They said the Masters should be moved out of Georgia. Do you think that they understood that the Masters is only in Georgia, and if they played it anywhere else, it would not actually be the Masters? Did they think that it’s like the US Open or the PGA or the British Open where it changes from a year-to-year basis?
“This is one of the dumbest boycott arguments I’ve ever seen — maybe the dumbest.”
It’s impossible not to laugh during the segment. The fact that we’re even having this discussion is insane. I don’t know who gave the green light to this idea, but man does it set up some great content from Clay.
What do you think? I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something that could rival it, but I’ve got nothing.
