During a speech and - shock horror - in several tweets this week, Trump called upon NFL owners to fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem, and suggested that they should "find something else to do". So the pertinent question for Lewis is, if he didn't totally agree with Kapernick's form of protest, why did he mimic that exact same form of protest Sunday? We have a lot of work to do and we can do it, but comments like the President's make it harder.
Much of the conversation surrounding the game, however, will involve the national anthem played before the contest, as members of both teams locked arms on their respective sidelines and some players knelt. We respect their determination and support them 100 percent. All voices need to be heard.
That wasn't the end of Trump's freaky attack on professional athletes, however. The results are promising for anyone who thinks racism, white supremacy, and police brutality are bad. "Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our country".
"My decision has been coming for a long time", Maxwell, the son of a U.S. Army veteran, said after the game to ESPN.
The entire offensive line of the Oakland Raiders, which is the only unit in the league composed entirely of African-American players, plans to protest during the national anthem prior to Sunday night's game against the Washington Redskins, according to reports.

Players, commissioners and owners from multiple sports lashed out against the President over the weekend.

Nikki Haley said the sanctions need time to work and maintained hope that Pyongyang would return to the negotiating table. China's foreign ministry said Monday that military threats being made by North Korea and the US were counterproductive.
The US is "disseminating the fraudulent claim that the sanctions and pressure are geared to the so-called peaceful solution". Trump is expected to announce additional sanctions about North Korea on Thursday over its nuclear weapons program.
Watson threw for 300-yards in his second career start, but his 2-TDs and 45-yards rushing wasn't enough for the Texans. Saints veteran quarterback Drew Brees shredded the vaunted Panthers defense with three touchdown passes for 220 yards.
Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal as Manchester United clinched a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium. While we're assuming that Christensen has that job, that means that one of Cahill or Rudiger would have to miss out.
For the first time in a match against Okuhara, Sindhu failed to make it to the double digits, surrendering the game 21-8. This was the ninth career meeting between the two and Nozomi now has a 5-4 advantage with this win.
Ceballos received a pass from Marco Asensio , fought through a tackle, and shot just inside the post for the opener. Father and son will be reunited, albeit on opposite sides of the ball, when Madrid visits the Basque Country club.

The Toffees picked up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 2-1 victory, with Oumar Niasse scoring both the goals. We needed in the second half to have another striker close to Dominic to press a bit better than we did before.
Numerous streaming services, including Netflix and Amazon, have a library of 4K content that pops nicely with the Apple TV 4K. Apple's embrace of 4K is significant, despite the fact that Roku, Amazon and other rivals beat Apple to that milestone.
