Professional athletes are getting paid a lot of money to play a game for a living, win or lose, they need to talk about the game for the fans that support them.

The TV/radio contracts fund their salaries/compensation. They have some level of contractual obligation to answer questions.

The only athletes who should be required to speak to the media are professional athletes. However, even professional athletes should be afforded some grace for refusing such media obligations in certain circumstances.

Not necessary. In fact many times I would prefer they didn’t. I tune in to watch them play a game. Not hear their opinion on other matters. Media q&a used to be about the game performance. Now it’s predominantly about hot button issues. It’s why I tune out now. Just wanna see them play.

Your performance is not based on how you feel about hot issues. By speaking to the media usually only creates controversy.

Their endorsement deals will go down if they aren’t in front of the cameras with the logos on their clothing. If they don’t want to make more in endorsements that’s their decision.

Naomi Osaka's stock went through the roof, no press conference needed. Her brands are behind her, logos are all over their jerseys already while they play.

Good

Hurts me emotionally but will likely be a great long term investment!

Consistently paid under value and in return we traded him for 5 draft picks. This was a great deal from sunrise to sunset!

The problem is that the defense is having to experiment when we have one of the highest paid d lines in the league. They need production from Frank Clark, Jarran Reed, and a linebacker crew that seems to know how to tackle.
