On his Fox Sports television show (see video below), NFL Hall of Fame player Shannon Sharpe weighed in on Major League Baseball’s decision to pull the All-Star Game from Atlanta, Georgia, and move it to Denver, Colorado, because of Georgia’s new voting law. Many argue that there are no differences between Georgia’s voting law and Colorado’s, but Sharpe applauded the decision.
“Fox Sports 1 “Undisputed” co-host Shannon Sharpe on Monday commended Major League Baseball’s decision to move its All-Star Game and Draft out of Atlanta over Georgia’s new election law. The game has since been moved to Colorado,” according to Breitbart.
“Sharpe said he is ‘so proud of the MLB’ for punishing Georgia economically for passing the new law to shore up election integrity and pushed other organizations to pull their events out of Georgia until something gets changed. He said other conservative states with similar laws should be “off the list.” [emphasis added]
