Is Fortnite Ruining Professional Sports?

I’m not made for the blogging world but I’m here to stand up for Fortnite like a masked vigilante and protect what I love. There’s a lot of slander on the internet right now how Professional Athletes are too addicted and should only be concentrating on sports. (I think this is where I put sources to what I’m talking about but you get it..)

David Price was getting shit on during the World Series because he was playing Fortnite in the club house with his teammates. Im going to go ahead and say if they didn’t play Fortnite in the club house…Boston doesn’t win. (HOT TAKE ALERT)

Another big story came from the NHL..The Vancouver Canucks banned all video games on the road. Let’s just say if the Jaguar players who were arrested in London were playing Fortnite no one gets arrested. The league has many players who play video games and still compete at a high level. 

NOTABLE ATHLETES WHO PLAY

  • JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER 
  • ANDREW WIGGENS 
  • GORDAN “G” HAYWARD
  • PAUL GEORGE 
  • KARL ANTHONY TOWNS
  • DEREK CARR (Bad example but that’s Gruden’s fault)
  • RICHARD SHERMAN
  • JULIAN BRANDT
  • ANTOINE GRIEZMAN
  • DAVID PRICE
  • P.K SUBBAN
  • ADAM HENRIQUE
  • PATRIK LAINE
  • T.Y HILTON
  • THE LIST GOES FOR DAYS BUT YOU GET IT.

End of the day I do believe gaming does bring people together…It’s great team bonding and I honestly believe it keep people out of trouble. The NFL just teamed up with Fortnite (not for the reason that I’m “blogging” about) because they know how big Fortnite is and how much money they’re about to bring in. I can’t wait to see what other Leagues jump in now.
