    STEPHON TUITT Prediction: Lots and lots of his teammates will have a problem with it. Remember what happened when Alejandro Villanueva simply got caught in the open during the anthem three years ago? His Pittsburgh Steeler teammates threw him under the bus for not getting out of sight, and after a brief spike in Villanueva jersey sales, the lineman ended up issuing a public apology.Stephon Tuitt has decided to dispense with the whole apology approach up front. In fact, Tuitt invites anyone who objects to perform an unnatural act on themselves: Also I’m not kneeling for the flag and screw...

    Former NFL coach Mike Ditka had a lot to say about the NFL players who plan to take a knee during the national anthem. He simply doesn’t care for it and he suggests anyone who’s taking a knee for the national anthem may as well get out of the country. But don’t listen to me. Take it from the man himself as quoted by TMZ: “If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That’s the way I feel. Of course, I’m old fashioned, so I’m only going to say what I feel. You don’t...

    President Donald Trump reiterated his disdain for professional athletes protesting racism by kneeling during the national anthem early Tuesday morning just hours after the San Francisco Giants' Gabe Kapler became the first major league manager to do so alongside his players.

Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. Beginning in September of 2017, when Trump first seized upon the issue during a rally in Alabama, the President has repeatedly...

    Rumors flew after the Redskins announced they were conducting a “thorough review” of their name, that the team could perhaps come up with a new name before the start of the 2020 season. Now, a new report suggests that the name change could come very soon indeed. According to Ben Fischer of Sports Business Daily, sources within the organization say that the team “intends to select a new nickname as soon as possible.” As Fischer writes, a person bidding for a minority share of the team has received personal assurances that the name will be changed. Fischer also cites a...

    The usual anti-racism crowd is punting.....In early June, Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints refused to take a knee because he didn’t want to insult the flag. Black NFL players lined up to denounce him. ‘Ignorant,’ said his black teammate Emmanuel Sanders. ‘Drew’s words were extremely painful to hear,’ another black Saint, Malcolm Jenkins said, ‘and I hope he rectifies them with real action.’ ‘If you don’t speak about racism, then you’re a part of the problem,’ said A.J. Brown of the Tennessee Titans. A month later, in early July, DeSean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles posted on Instagram...

    The Philadelphia Eagles responded to DeSean Jackson posting anti-Semitic quotes attributed to Adolf Hitler on Instagram, but the team isn’t yet taking action. The Eagles have been in contact with the 33-year-old wide receiver, who posted an apology, and condemned his posts. “We have spoken with DeSean Jackson about his social media posts. Regardless of his intentions, the messages he shared were offensive, harmful, and absolutely appalling,” the Eagles said in a statement Tuesday. “They have no place in our society, and are not condoned or supported in any way by the organization. We are disappointed and we reiterated to...

    “I don’t really care what anybody thinks about me, never have, but I know a lot of people that do,” Murray said. “And for me being a black man in America, if it’s wrong I’m gonna say it’s wrong. I feel like personally, it’s on everybody to hold each other accountable. But more so, for me, if you’re white and you got white friends that feel this certain type of way or don’t understand what’s going on, it’s on you to educate them, as well as black, Hispanic, any other ethnicity.

    A comeback for Colin Kaepernick … or CYA from the NFL? “We should have listened to our players earlier,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told ESPN’s Mike Greenberg last night, perhaps especially the one that made the biggest splash. In the most direct comments on the years-long standoff between the league and its most high-profile exile, Goodell held out an olive branch, offering him a “role” in the league’s new efforts on social justice, but he also “encourage[s]” teams to consider signing Kaepernick to a contract.That would certainly make the NFL and Goodell look better with a significant segment of...

    After a picture of Mike Gundy wearing a One America News shirt circulated and drew backlash from members of the Oklahoma State football team, the Cowboys head coach apologized to current players, former players and players' families Tuesday. Gundy said of a meeting with the team: "They helped me see through their eyes how the T-shirt affected their hearts. Once I learned how that network felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew it was completely unacceptable to me." He also said the meetings with his team have been "eye-opening."
