i agree with this, fining the team is pretty trivial really. if anything they should fine the player and maybe suspend them for a game.
would kapernick have even cared if he got his team a 100k fine? i kind of doubt it. the team would just shrug it off too, no big deal
My point is/was that I do not think we need the National anthem played at ANY sporting/entertainment events....as they are the only form of "entertainment" where we do the anthem. I only geared my response towards the NFL due to the fact the new policy is only for the NFL and this forum is an NFL forum.
I am sorry for not being clear re. other sports in the US, but that is partially b/c the anthem does not seem to be so controversial with the other sports....
interesting change, but they just gave the media a lot of power to direct where this goes next
if they make a big production over the guys that come out of the locker room late then we are in the same position as now. if they dont, then we may not hear much about it after this
Yep. He said something along the lines of "I want to be able to get to training camp at 100%, and without having a governor," or something like that. He's not gonna be full go if he isn't doing some throwing beforehand. And in Reich's presser today, he made it sound like Luck will ramp things up in that 6 week period between minicamp and training camp.
