  • COLUMN: You Can Knock Colin Kaepernick -- Don't Call Him Un-American

    Colin Kaepernick stood tall while sitting down, which is not an easy thing to do. In fact, what he did in benching himself for the national anthem on Friday night was the hardest thing he could possibly do. The easy thing? That would be standing silently with his teammates on the San Francisco 49ers sideline, cutting against the grain of his conscience. Nobody would've known the difference. Nobody would have reason to challenge his patriotism, to call him all kinds of nasty names, and to remind him, by the way, that he has devolved into a lousy quarterback who should be spending more time with his playbook anyway. But he planted himself among the Gatorade buckets, understanding that in an age

  • Verstappen blames Raikkonen, Vettel for ‘destroying’ Belgian GP at Turn 1

    Max Verstappen has blamed Ferrari drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel for ending his hopes of a podium finish in Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix, saying his race was “destroyed” at Turn 1. The race at Spa-Francorchamps acted as Verstappen’s home event as tens of thousands of fans made the trip over from his native Netherlands, resulting in the circuit’s best raceday attendance in over a decade. Verstappen made a slow start from second place on the grid, slipping behind Raikkonen on the run down to the first corner. The Dutchman tried to dive down the inside of Raikkonen at La Source, only for the two to make contact and also tangle with Vettel on the outside. The collision left Verstappen

  • Belichick on Kaepernick: 'Not here to talk political commentary'

    Other than allowing Tom Brady to pee on his territory, I wonder what the Patriots accomplished on Friday night when it came to their quarterback situation. It didn't feel like much. Really. What was established? That Brady is maniacal about his job? That he's also really, really good? That Jimmy Garappolo isn't? That he's still well behind the starter? Didn't everyone, most notably Bill Belichick, know all those things?  In other words, by playing Brady as much as they did, the Pats ‎proved almost nothing in Carolina. They certainly didn't do anything to get Garappolo closer to being ready for Arizona on Sept. 11. The only thing they accomplished was to scratch Brady's insatiable itch, and they

  • Puck Daddy Summer Series: Weird Washington Capitals

    What can be said for the Capitals 1993-94 team calendar that hasn’t already been said about a JCPenney’s catalog from the 1990s? Rather than just go with the usual in-game action shot (or more recently snuggling up to dogs), the Caps took a hard-left when it came to the calendar and put the players in forced comfortable setting, like when you’re at a family reunion trying to care about the story of your third cousin’s Lasik surgery. While I don’t doubt the Caps went out and about to places in Baltimore and DC to spend their off-days, I do know for a fact Randy Burridge does hang out on above the right field scoreboard at Camden Yards as that was his assigned section for selling peanuts on game nights.

  • WATCH: Young Argentine player shows off skills that would make Messi jealous

    Most of our readers likely aren't well-versed in the world that is Argentine club soccer. Because of the dominance of the European game, it's not the most popular league in the world, but it doesn't lack quality and is always exciting to watch. Soccer fans may know of clubs like Boca Juniors, River Plate. Maybe even Independiente, San Lorenzo or Racing, but the name Giovani Lo Celso or Rosario Central probably doesn't ring a bell for most. Well, he's a name you'll be hearing more of moving forward. The dynamic Argentine midfielder, playing for for Rosario Central on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, showed off some crazy skills on Saturday that his French club would likely describe as "magnifique."

  • 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Says His Stand 'Is for People That Don't Have the Voice'

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said today no one has tried to stop him from sitting out the national anthem at NFL games or to keep him from talking about the beliefs that led him to the protest. Kaepernick has drawn a mix of criticism and praise since it was noticed that the backup quarterback did not stand during the national anthem Thursday night during an NFL preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. He said he made the decision to sit out the national anthem because he wanted to bring awareness to things going on in the country he feels are unjust, and because he feels the values the American flag is supposed to stand for are not being realized.

  • Former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is a sports owner once again

    There aren’t many major league ownership reigns which ended more ignominiously than Frank McCourt’s reign as Dodgers owner. He was granted access to one of business’ most exclusive clubs — one which being a convicted criminal or even a Nazi sympathizer cannot get you kicked out of — and somehow got kicked out. The clear lesson from his saga was that saddling your team with debt, using it as your own private piggy bank and exercising bad judgment at every possible turn will not get you drummed out of baseball but, by gum, having it all go public in a divorce case sure as heck will. McCourt landed pretty safely, though. By sheer luck, his being kicked out of ownership coincided with the vast appreciation

Kaepernick will continue to sit during the national anthem, as his protest of the way blacks are treated in America, even if it costs him dearly as an NFL player.

From Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times: Some NBA officials contend he signed with Milwaukee and rejected overtures from a handful of teams, including the reigning NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers, because of potential playing time. “He wants his minutes,’’ said an NBA executive, whose team had shown some interest in signing Terry. “He didn’t go there (Milwaukee) to sit on the bench.’’ Terry’s agent denied this, saying

  • Let’s argue about EA Sports’ NHL 17 player ratings

    EA Sports released top player rankings for NHL 17 about a week ago, but it isn’t too late to needlessly argue about them. The top 50 overall ratings is probably the best place to start, but EA also shared top 10 lists for centers, defensemen, goalies, left wings and right wings. Now, it’s important not to take this stuff too seriously. There are plenty of things to cool down any diehards who feel like Their Guy was disrespected, but do note that ratings sometimes get tweaked.

  • The Phillies pulled Jeremy Hellickson back from trade waivers

    CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that a team claimed Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson on trade waivers, but the two clubs were unable to work out a deal. As a result, the Phillies pulled Hellickson back from trade waivers, which means he’s ineligible to be traded for the rest of the season. Hellickson, 29, has had a nice bounce-back season after three poor years from 2013-15. He’s 10-8 with a 3.80 ERA and a 131/36 K/BB ratio in 154 innings. The Phillies could attempt to re-sign Hellickson in the offseason. It’s also possible the club makes a qualifying offer — estimated to be worth $16.7 million — so that the Phillies will at least get back a compensatory draft pick if Hellickson opts to
