National Football League stars past and present are expressing outrage after President Donald Trump used an address in Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday to attack players who protest during the national anthem. Trump did not reference by name San Francisco 49ers former player Colin Kaepernick, who took a knee during the national anthem before games last year to protest police brutality and racial injustice.
King James has spoken. After President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday morning he would be “withdrawing” Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry’s invitation to visit the White House to celebrate his team’s NBA title, LeBron James took to Twitter to give the president a piece of his mind.
While UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor did much better than expected against Floyd Mayweather Jr. inside of the boxing ring this past August, the brash Irishman ultimately lost the combat super fight via TKO. McGregor sustained copious amounts of damage along the ropes before the referee jumped in for the 10th-round stoppage. Now that the dust has settled and the “Money Fight” can be viewed from an analytic aspect, Mayweather is giving insight into why he didn’t truly try to put McGregor out and inflict more damage than what was needed to win. “He has a career. You know, he still has a career. He’s still young,” said Mayweather during a recent interview on the Hollywood Unlocked podcast.
