Aaron Rodgers after Drew Brees' comments: Protests have never been about anthem or flag

  • NFL Packers American Football

    Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers called for solidarity and change amid protests over George Floyd's death, adding that on-field demonstrations by NFL players in recent years have "never been about an anthem or flag."

    Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died in Minneapolis after a white former police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest last week.

    RIVERA: Brees still doesn't get the point of protesting

    Violent protests have broken out across the United States since Floyd's death, during which he was filmed crying out for help as he was handcuffed and pinned to the ground.

    The situation has turned attention back to Colin Kaepernick and kneeling during the national anthem in 2夜网论坛016 to protest against police brutality and racial inequality. Saints quarterback Drew Brees still does not approve of that form of protest, as he reiterated Wednesday. His position brought heavy backlash from NFL players.

    Rodgers was among those to use social media to speak out on players protesting.

    A few years ago we were criticized for locking arms in solidarity before the game. It has NEVER been about an anthem or a flag. Not then. Not now. Listen with an open heart, let’s educate ourselves,[......]


    What channel is Titans vs. Broncos on today? Time, TV schedule for ‘Monday Night Football’ in Week 1

  • NFL Broncos v Titans Broncos Titans American Football

    A hard-hitting AFC matchup closes out Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season.

    In the second game of the 2020 "Monday Night Football" 夜网论坛debut, it's a matchup of hard-hitting defenses with the Titans traveling to Denver, Colo., to take on the Broncos in, what should be, a sneaky-good matchup. 

    In a pretty small sample size, Lock had a promising showing as a rookie, helping the Broncos to a 4-1 record while he was under center, throwing seven touchdowns to three interceptions in those starts. Lock has more help this year, as Denver head man John Elway drafted wide receivers with the Broncos' first two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft: Alabama product Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler out of Penn State.

    This year, the Broncos will have to generate a pass rush without Von Miller, who is likely out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery following a freak injury in practice. For most teams, losing a future Hall of Famer like Miller might be a difficult task. For Denver, it might not be, considering Bradley Chubb should be all systems go[......]


    Some Jaguars players 'aren't thrilled' with Urban Meyer's coaching style: 'They're not off to a good start'

  • NFL Jaguars American Football

    The Urban Meyer experiment is off to a rough start in Jacksonville.

    Meyer has faced plenty of criticism ahead of the 2021 NFL season, from his decision to bring in Tim Tebow as a tight end to his unwillingness to name No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence the Jaguars' starting quarterback. (Meyer finally confirmed what everyone else already knew on Wednesday, telling reporters that Lawrence is at the top of the QB depth chart.)

    Well, Jags fans, we've got more bad news. During an appearance on Tuesday's edition of "The D.A. Show," CBS Sports' Pete Prisco told Damon Amendolara that some Jacksonville players are sharing less-than-glowing reviews of the former Florida and Ohio State coach.

    "He's got to change a few things. He brought a bunch of college-like things to the program, which I don't necessarily agree with," Prisco said. "And I've heard some of the players aren't thrilled with him either, including having a microphone on the field, one of his assistants on the field during practice with a boom mic, telling everybody to hydrate and hustle and get to the next period.

    "So, obviously he's a work in progress. He's been a good football coach everywhere he's been. I[......]


    Knicks' Tyson Chandler expects to be back by New Year's

  • NBA

    The New York Knicks need Tyson Chandler, and that can be considered understatement of the year.

    Chandler holds the Knicks defense together because he makes up for so many mistakes with his ability to help and protect the rim. He also serves as a primary rebounder and screener as well.

    They've struggled without Chandler, who suffered a fracture in his right fibula, was expected to be out 4-6 weeks with the injury. He has been out for five weeks at this point, but he could be back with the team before New Year's.

    If Chandler does sit out 2014, he will miss 11 more games. The Knicks have hit hard time already, and they could implode by that point. Truth is, the Knicks will make the playoffs because, as you've heard, the East is pretty bad. But things could certainly get worse before they get better, and their recent 41-point home loss to the Celtics serves as an indication of that.

    Focusing on the po夜网论坛sitive, Chandler did go through all practice drills, except those involving contact, the team announced. That's the good thing. The Knicks could use more of those.




    Rajon Rondo may not return until February

  • NBA

    The Boston Celtics expect point guard Rajon Rondo to return in January.

    Rondo says not so fast.

    Rondo says it could be late January or even late February before he is ready to return from his knee injury.

    “It might be the end of January, late February,” Rondo told the Boston Herald after the Celtics’ 106-79 loss to the Indiana Sunday. “I’m going to come back when I get my stamina.”

    Asked if returning in January was a realistic goal, Rondo said, “No. I’ve had one practice — a pickup game, and that’s about it. My endurance is key. I don’t want to come back and not be 100 percent.

    “It’s me being in shape as well,” Rondo told the Herald. “The worst thing is coming back and not being in shape, because you can risk injury. I want to be in basketball-condition shape. You can run all the sprints you want and get on a bike and do that conditioning, but after 10 or 11 months of not playing the game of basketball, it’s not easy to get back in shape just doing those things. You have to play basketball.”

    Rondo asked his teammates to stay after practice Friday for a 5-on-5 pickup game. According to the Herald, he looked rusty and winded.

    He plans to participate in a scrimmage Thursday.

    “I think it’s very important,” he told the Herald. “I’ve been in the other drills, in the dummy offense, I know the game, I know what we’re looking for with our sets. It’s a matt[......]

  • NBA

    Shaquille O'Neal has a big personality.

    You likely remember his antics during his playing career or his recent work on "Inside the NBA" on TNT.

    But Shaq also has a big heart. The former big man held his "SHAQ-a-CLAUS" event on Monday, in 夜网论坛which he handed out a bunch of toys to roughly 300 kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Venice, Cali.

    They also got to take a picture with "The Big Reindeer."

    That will make anybody's Christmas.

  • NBA

    Future ACC competitors Miami and Louisville meet on Saturday in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

    But before the two teams hit the field, they met together for a luncheon on Friday.

    It was there that Hurricane players Walter Tucker, Nantambu-Akil Fentress, and Jimmy Gaines performed a strong rendition of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me."

    Surprisingly enough, the trio did a pretty good job.

    They could h夜网论坛ave used a mic check, but nonethelss, three college football players could have done much, much worse. 




    Miller, Jones excited to play with LeBron again

  • NBA

    INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Mike Miller and James Jones came to Cleveland to help LeBron James win an NBA title. They hope Ray Allen join夜网论坛s them.

    Miller and Jones were introduced Wednesday by the Cavaliers, who remain interested in signing Allen, the most prolific 3-point shooter in league history.

    Jones, who won two NBA titles as James' teammate in Miami, said he recently spent time with Allen in Connecticut. Jones said he would love to play with Allen again, but doesn't know if the 39-year-old will play another season.

    Miller played with James on Tuesday at the superstar's high school alma mater in Akron and reported the four-time league MVP "looks good" following a recent weight loss.

    Miller said James is "always driven" but that he's more committed than ever to bring a championship to Cleveland.



    Doug McDermott's college roommate sells his old clothes

  • NBA

    Chicago Bulls rookie Doug McDermott left his clothes back in his college apartment and his old roommate is getting rid of them.

    Michael Vandevoort is allowing potential buyers to pick through McDermott's closet for shirts, shoes, and anything else tha夜网论坛t may be in there.

    If you move out of your apartment, chances are that you would take your clothes. Then again, maybe if you're drafted into the NBA and plan on buying an entirely new wardrobe it becomes less important. 

    The best part of the flyer?

    Vandevoort refers to the Bulls as "some basketball team."



    Adam Silver: NBA won't punish James Dolan, a 'consummate New Yorker'

  • NBA Basketball

    NBA commissioner Adam Silver says Knicks owner James Dolan is a "consummate New Yorker" and therefore will not be punished for an夜网论坛 angry email he recently sent to a fan.

    “Jim is a consummate New Yorker,” Silver told the New York Post. “Jim got an unkind email and responded with an unkind email.”

    Dolan responded aggressively to an email from longtime Knicks fan Irving Bierman, 73, who expressed his displeasure over the team's downward spiral.

    Dolan called Bierman an "alcoholic" and told him to go root for the Nets, among other insults.

    "You are a sad person," Dolan wrote in the email. "Why would anybody write such a hateful letter. I am just guessing but ill bet your life is a mess and you are a hateful mess. What have you done that anyone would consider positive or nice. I am betting nothing.

    "In fact ill bet you are negative force in everyone who comes in contact with you," Dolan went on. “You most likely have made your family miserable. Alcoholic maybe. I just celebrated my 21 year anniversary of sobriety. You should try it. Maybe it will help you become a person that folks would like to have around."

    The Knicks, at 10-41, are in the midst of their worst season in franchise history.
