I know when I turn on a game, I want to watch the game. I want to watch players play and teams win, lose, come from behind.

He said he’s heard fans tell him they don’t watch sports anymore because it has gotten too political.
“There’s always been differences,” he said. “There’s always been issues within the world, within the country, within our states. But again, something has to unify us.
