Trump Thinks the National Football League is a Dictator Like He Wants to Be

NFL Kneeling: It's a “Yes” for me

I also think it's amusing that ESPN suspended Hill for calling for a boycott of the Cowboys but not for calling the President of the United States a white supremacist.

Tonight, President Donald Trump sits down with Sean Hannity at 9 PM ET - on location at his tax reform speech in Dauphin County, Pa.

Earlier Thursday Trump tweeted, "It is about time that Roger Goodell of the NFL is finally demanding that all players STAND for our great National Anthem - RESPECT OUR COUNTRY".

He said, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he's fired!' You know, some owner is going to do that".

"They could have then suspended him for two games and they could have suspended him again if he did it a third time, for the season, and you would never have had a problem".

Marshawn Lynch of the Oakland Raiders wore a T-shirt that read, "Everybody vs. Trump", before their game against the Denver Broncos, according to Hoffman and Belson.

Chelsea's Kante ruled out for three weeks
The Spaniard limped out of Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to City at Stamford Bridge and subsequently missed the worldwide break with Spain. "This is a big loss for us". "Kante is going to have a scan next week to check if his hamstring problem is improving".

Gambit movie has a new release date
Gambit always was known for being a romantic, so it's only appropriate that his movie is opening on Valentine's Day. Now, however, 20th Century Fox has finalized a release date for the film.

Settlers of Catan Is Getting a Movie Adaptation
Thus, Sony sees vast potential, and has hopes of constructing a possible multi film franchise from the game's world. The project will be overseen by Andrea Giannetti ( Inferno, Passengers ) for Columbia.

This led to one of the largest mass protests in sports in recent memory.

In the letter he sent out Tuesday, Goodell stated, "Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem" and "We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players". It's kind of like the Constitution that Trumps knows nothing at all about and it limits their authority in situations like this.

Because at the end of the day, the protest isn't about who participates, but about the awareness and change it creates. Many athletes responded to the president's behaviour with varying critiques ranging from the thoughtful to the exasperated to the angry, although superstar Lebron James threw down the hardest dunk simply by calling Trump "U bum".

Maybe more noise will come of their silent protests and start affecting change while the owners will get their players back on their feet. The protests turned into a statement against Trump as much as against racial injustice, and rightly so.

Somehow, shockingly, the players didn't obey the very, very powerful president, with hundreds joining in protests in one form or another over the weekend. If he tries that, it would violate the collective bargaining agreement and the players would be furious over it.

Wherever the "stick to sports" guys end up now that they've been forced to leave their favourite teams behind, I hope they find peace.
