2 monthes ago   |   By

With no deadlines to meet and a monthlong summer break coming up, NFL teams are in no hurry to formulate a policy on demonstrations during the national anthem. One day after league owners mandated that players must stand for the "Star-Spangled Banner" - they now have the option of remaining in the locker room for the playing of the anthem - few of the 32 teams had done more than preliminary work on the issue.

NFL's policy could mean a new playbook on protests this fall

2 monthes ago   |   By

PHILADELPHIA - Now that the NFL is drawing the line against players kneeling during the national anthem, athletes protesting police brutality and racial inequality may need to find a new playbook.
The question is whether they intend to escalate their protests in some way.
“The owners can try to prevent kneeling, but they open another can of worms,” said Randal Maurice Jelks, professor of African and African-American studies and history at the University of Kansas. “Imagine if players decide as a team to not come out for the national anthem. Or if one-third of the team decides not to come...

Warriors coach Steve Kerr says new NFL anthem rule is ‘idiotic'

On Wednesday, the NFL implemented a new rule meant to ban peaceful protests during the National Anthem, which former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick pioneered before the league froze him out last year. On Thursday afternoon, Warriors basketball coach Steve Kerr, had a few things to say about it.

HAWL IN: Sam Acho's seven-minute, 27 second narrative providing some NFL perspective

2 monthes ago   |   By

LAKE FOREST - They come and they go. They start and they finish. Player or coach talks, journalist questions, player or coach leaves.
A few provide some funny moments while others provide conflict. Yet most news conferences fade out of conscious rather quickly, considering the volume of availabilities in a given year.
Hence when there is a memorable one, it's worth holding onto. One of those occurred on Wednesday, outside of Halas Hall and just off the practice field where a OTA workout was just completed.
It went seven minutes and 27 seconds, which you can see here .
Sam Acho made every...

The NFL Plans to Fine Players Who Kneel During the Anthem

2 monthes ago   |   By

Yesterday, the NFL issued a new policy requiring all players on the field to stand during the national anthem or risk league-issued fines.
For supporters of the protests, the optics are tough. It's a rule made by a mostly-white management to police the expression of a mostly-black workforce, on issues of vital importance to many of the player's fans and communities.
It also politicizes the national anthem over a spectacle that has little to do with patriotic values.
And it looks like capitulation to a petulant President who is using his bully pulpit to harangue private citizens and...
