Its rituals are surprisingly widespread 锟斤拷 pilgrimages home through packed airports; gatherings of family and friends (and attendant tensions that are the stuff of Hollywood rom-coms); the dining room altar on which the turkey is supped, then a long day of drifting in and out of consciousness while hours and hours of football flicker in our darkening dens.
Reid is closely aligned with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the players’ protest movement last season. Kaepernick refused to stand for the anthem prior to games in protest of racial inequality in the United States and the treatment of African Americans by the police. Reid joined Kaepernick in those protests and has continued them this season.
Reid has said he believes that Kaepernick’s original message in the protests has been lost during a 2017 NFL season in which Trump sharply criticized protesting players and the NFL’s response to the protests, sparking a national debate revolving around issues of patriotism and freedom of expression.

A federal appeals court denied a request by the NFL Players Association to keep Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension on hold, a development that potentially clears the way for the NFL to enforce its six-game ban of the standout running back for the Dallas Cowboys. The suspension would start with Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, pending yet another appeal.
