A Historic Moment For Protest In Sports
FiveThirtyEight
 

In a breaking news episode, Sara, Neil and FiveThirtyEight senior sports writer Chris Herring reflect on the wild events that have rocked the sports world in the past 24 hours and contextualize the players’ strike that began with the NBA and spread to the WNBA, MLB and MLS, among other leagues. This is a historic moment of collective action — and grief — in American sports; it shows both how far athletes have come in their ability to organize protests and how little has changed.

What we’re looking at today:

Sarah Shachat is Hot Takedown’s producer.

Sara Ziegler is the sports editor at FiveThirtyEight.

Chris Herring is a senior sportswriter for FiveThirtyEight.

Neil Paine is a senior writer for FiveThirtyEight.
