Ben Fordham warns sport of ‘slippery slope’ amid BLM divide
Ben Fordham is cautioning sporting bodies against forcing players into making political statements.
T20 Cricket World Cup players have been encouraged to take a knee before games in support of Black Lives Matter.
The South African men’s cricket team appeared divided with the players seen standing, kneeling or raising a fist.
“I think sport is heading down a slippery slope with his stuff,” Ben said, “it’s a guilt trip.”
“None of them on the same page and none of them should be put in this position in the first place.”
