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.
Because you feel that way doesn't make it so. Jonathan Martin posted this in February!!
If he did this while in Florida, I'm sure it wasn't long before he was 'Baker Acted' (Involuntary psychiatric hold in Florida). Just like his bully buddy below-
Involuntary psychiatric hold in Florida is called the Baker Act, named after the state representative from 1963-1972 (Maxine Baker) in FL years ago that had an interest in mental health issues.
Looks like psych issues for both guys ever since the 'confrontation'.
People will get upset no matter what. There will be plenty of cameras showing who came out for the anthem. That will start another controversy.
Having said that, I don't see anything wrong with the new policy. One has the option not to be on the field during the anthem. It seems like a good compromise. I don't see why the NFLPA has a problem with it. Perhaps there is something I am missing.
Only in the US. In my neck of the woods(Europe) people ridicule that obsession of fake displays of patriotism in US sports(the anthem, the parroting of the military, etc.). I've been a fan of multiple sports and I cannot think of a single one in a any country other than the US(and Canada?) that plays the national anthem before games of club teams. The only time they play the anthems is before national teams competitions/games/events.
