I suspect I'm far from alone amongst sports fans in only watching the game not the surrounding blurb.

That's proof by example fallacy. Regardless of your habits you are going to be exposed to non-game footage at some point, for most fans that's a part of the whole experience, and when they hear talk about how such-and-such team supports the rights of black trans non-binary wheelchair users they'll just lose interest. Identity politics spreads like a cancer and eventually the whole "scene" will simply be accusations of bigotry, apologies on twitter, demands for managers and players to be sacked because they assumed someones gender and so. It will be a sport version of twitter and it will destroy itself.
