Athletes share many things in common, like diet and training regiments, but another uniting force has bonded them. The video game "Fortnite" has taken the country by storm and swept up some of professional sports' biggest stars. Many feel athletes should concentrate on their jobs. David Price's carpal tunnel injury may have stemmed from the game after all. Still, these are professional athletes participating in a non-contact activity. It is perfectly safe. What do you think? 🎮 🏃

First of all, professional athletes are grown men playing a game for a living. They have no business playing a video game, let alone one that can potentially hurt them. David Price said he would cut down on playing "Fortnite" at the clubhouse so it wouldn't be a distraction. That proves the game is a big enough problem for all teams to ban their players from playing it. If it can hinder an athletes performance, it shouldn't be allowed.

Apparently, people think they can tell an adult what to do with their free time now. "Fortnite" is a video game that poses no risk to a player's ability to perform. It's not like riding in an ATV or snowboarding where serious injuries can occur. The video game is perfectly fine and no should have their stress-relieving entertainment taken away from them because people are hating.
