In theory, the idea of someone in professional sports not giving an F about someone, something, or everything, seems like a bad thing. But in practice, the whole concept sure seems to be applied in a way that doesn't deduct points off their rep, if it doesn't help it outright.

It seems counterintuitive because most of us get emotionally invested in things and events that aren't in any way directly related to us. When there's a major news event like a school shooting, so many people carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.
But when it comes to sports, it's generally a whole different story. Athletes that don't give an F are often rewarded with success and adoration. The whole "veins filled with ice water" concept is much more palatable when it relates to sports as opposed to anything else.
