    Ask the Reds, I've already given my opinion on the matter.

    Just curious.
    Why shouldn't the reds accept a forfeit if the Brewers refuse to play. If it's up to me I hope they play tonight play win or lose the game on the field

    In this situation, the commissioner needs to step in and say "you didn't show up, it's a forfeit".
    Why should it be up to the opposing team?
    Again, I am not debating what they are protesting, but it's their job to show up and play the game.
    As soon as you let the players arbitrarily decide when they are going to show up and when they aren't, and there's no consequences, then the sport is just out of control.

    I mean it's your call, but that's what would finally do it for you?

    This is 100% facts. If the Brewers want to make a statement that's their business but there has to be consequences.

    Can't say I disagree with him because now there's no structured to the game

    I don't think that's true. Whatever statement is being made, the Reds (and MLB) aren't going to contradict it by having there be "consequences".

    Re: Reds @ Brewers 8-26-20

    Another thing to consider is it further puts the safety of players at risk with Covid making them potentially playing another day and travel when they are already in town. It would also be incredibly unfair to make the reds play a DH tomorrow when they already have one on Saturday vs the Cubs. Which could give the Brewers an out as to why they didn't postpone it.

    Brewers have zero DH scheduled in the near future that I can see. So it clearly favors the Brewers.

    There's zero structure to this season anyway with random COVID cancellations. This doesn't feel any different (to me).

    I don't think it's a good look for MLB, a sport with declining Black participation, to be hardasses about this in the current climate especially with how the NBA has handled it so far. This season has been out of control from the start so I don't know if that's a factor.

    No, I was just trying to understand how protesting one game would be the final straw for you.

    I disagree. If the Brewers are forced to take a loss for this forfeit, it makes the "boycott" seem more noble. They are willing to give the Reds a game in the standings to make their point.
    If there's no consequences for their actions, it's an empty gesture, other than annoying most of the fans.

    Good point about the boycott seeming more noble. I hadn't thought of that. I still think MLB and the Reds will feel its in their best interest to be in solidarity.

    I wish I could explain my point as well as you do. You hit the nail on the head did the Brewers give up a game to a forfeit got shows they are putting the cause before the game. If it's just postponed what point did they prove
