Baseball managed to survive quite nicely on 154-game schedules from 1901-60 (AL) and ’62 (NL).

It may not sound like a lot, eight fewer games scattered across six months, but I never have talked to a baseball player who wouldn’t prefer a shorter slate, even by only a week.

Tomlin didn’t mention President Trump by name but said there is a divisive atmosphere forcing teammates to pick political sides.

People shouldn’t have to choose, the veteran Steelers coach said.

If a guy wants to go about his normal business and participate in the anthem, he shouldn’t be forced to choose sides. If a guy feels the need to do something, he shouldn’t be separated from his teammate who chose not to.

It might not be the best idea to make a racially insensitive analogy about a highly publicized meeting about racial inequality, but one NFL owner reportedly managed to do that.

More than two dozen NFL representatives and players met Oct. 17 in New York to discuss the issues behind the league-wide national anthem protests, which include the mistreatment of minorities by police officers and general racial inequalities. Texans owner Lamarcus Joyner Authentic Jersey Bob McNair likely didn’t endear himself to the players with his reaction to the meeting.

Troy Vincent, currently the executive vice president of football operations for the NFL, was not happy with McNair’s comment, going as far as saying he’d been called many names, including the N-word, while playing in the league but he never felt like an inmate.

DirecTV is offering refunds to people offended by NFL protests

Satellite service DirecTV is refunding NFL Sunday Ticket subscriptions for customers offended by the weekend’s national anthem protests.
Elite Nike Men's Jace Amaro White Road Jersey: NFL #88 New York Jets
Normally the company does not give refunds for the specialty package after the season starts, but it apparently changed course after getting calls from hoards of customers upset over the players and coaches who knelt for the anthem during Sunday and Monday games, one former subscriber said.

Nine-time All-Star Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets in June in a deal that gave the Los Angeles Clippers seven players in return.

Hundreds of players took part in the national anthem demonstrations last weekend in response to comments the president made at a rally, in which he referred to any athlete who kneels as a son of a bitch.

The NFL mothers didn’t directly note the statement in their letter, but they did describe how their sons were trying to serve their communities and better the country.

Whether it be by kneeling or standing with their arms locked, our sons have chosen this platform to get the message out about social justice and unity, and they will always have our support, the letter reads. Now that we obviously have your attention, let’s put a stop to the divisive language and start a productive dialogue for positive change.

The original SkyCam zooms 12 feet to 40 feet above the playing field and the new one will go from 40 to 80 feet. Among other things, look for it to play a role on goal-line plays. Like on, say, a James White touchdown run in overtime.

But you have Authentic Matt Moore Jersey to figure that the heat those coaching candidates are getting, what with multiple former Patriots front office guys situated around the league — most notably Bob Quinn with the Lions — likely isn’t ideal for Belichick making a Super Bowl run. There are always interviews that can get in the way of preparation, although it certainly did not bother the Patriots last year. As good as Belichick is, losing his offensive and defensive coordinator in a single offseason would be suboptimal.

Jaguars owner Shahid Khan suggested Thursday at a Crain’s Chicago Business conference that his fellow NFL owners may be ignoring a difficult truth.

And it’s one that could hamstring the league’s capacity to come to grips with its simmering national-anthem controversy.

I think what we’re seeing, Khan said at the Chicago Melvin Ingram Youth jersey event, is the great divider overcoming the great uniter.

Khan joined Jacksonville players on the sideline before a Sept. 24 game played in London, linking arms during the national anthem in a show of solidarity.

No matter what you do in life, one of the most important things is to be true to who you are, Smith told the site. There are so many people who identify as LGBT in the NFL, as in any business, that do not feel comfortable being public about their sexual orientation.

The more we can create an environment that welcomes all types of people, no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, the more we can help ease the pain and burden that many carry every day.

Sowers, 31, will be the second full-time female coach in NFL history. Kathryn Smith was the first, working for the Bills last season as a special teams quality control coach. Sowers, who was an intern on the Falcons’ staff in 2016 with new 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, will work with the wide receivers in San Francisco.

Now he has to prove he’s worth that deal in a brand-new scheme, with little talent at the skill positions, behind an offensive Joe Mullen Womens Jersey line with both starting tackles banged up. Brock Osweiler and Mike Glennon were able to get their deals because of the allure of their unknown potential. If the Texans and Bears had gotten the chance to wait until after their first eight starts with their new teams to decide how much to pay them, both probably would have received a small fraction of their current salaries.

Former Utah offensive tackle Garett Bolles is one of the best stories in this draft. He had a difficult early life, getting kicked out or suspended from five different schools as a teenager and even spent some time in jail. He was eventually kicked out of his house when he was in high school but was taken in by his former lacrosse coach under fairly strict guidelines.

Spurs point guard Tony Parker met with Gregg Popovich before Sunday’s loss to the Pacers, and Popovich told him he thought it was time to go with someone else in the starting lineup. Parker came off the bench for the 21st time in his career.

On Nov. 22, Popovich said that he had never encountered a quadriceps issue like the one Leonard is experiencing.

What’s really strange is that Tony Parker has the same injury, but even worse, Popovich told reporters. Parker ruptured a left quadriceps tendon in the Western Conference playoffs in May, a far more severe injury, and returned to the Spurs’ lineup nearly seven months later.

Leonard made his season debut on Dec. 12, scoring 13 points in 16 minutes against the Dallas Mavericks. The Spurs kept Leonard on a minutes restriction and held him out of back-to-back games until Leonard sustained a strained left shoulder on Jan. 5 against the Phoenix Suns.

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.
Elite Youth Moritz Boehringer Jersey
Kaepernick has remained unsigned this season after opting out of his contract with the 49ers following last season. He has filed a grievance accusing NFL teams of colluding to keep him out of the league.

Griffin continued, Baltimore was just, they offered me a contract right before the first preseason Scott Hartnell Jersey game to start against the Redskins. Selfishly, I could have said, ‘Yeah, I’ll take that. I want to go play against them,’ but I knew I wouldn’t have been ready with that offense, with those guys to go put my best foot forward. When I step on the field the next time, I want to make sure I put my best foot forward and make sure that, obviously, I stay healthy but I get a nice repertoire with the team and with the athletes and the coaches.
Elite Kids Peyton Manning Jersey
Griffin’s explanation for why he’s sitting out is peculiar, though, since the former NFL rookie of the year had previously said he was being kept out of the league, aligning his situation with Colin Kaepernick’s plight.

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.

We know, too, that most Republicans are white and that most black Americans are Democrats (though most Democrats, too, are white). How strong is the relationship, then, between partisan and racial tension?

Pew asked Americans how they felt about a number of values-based questions ranging from views on immigrants to the nature of success in America. The pollsters found that the differences in responses between Democrats and Republicans was much wider than those between men and women, blacks and whites or people who did or didn’t regularly attend church services.

The Raiders fired head coach Jack Del Rio following Sunday’s loss to the Chargers, opening the door further for the pursuit of Gruden.

Kids Pierre Turgeon Jersey It has not been a very good 18 months or so for Kelvin Benjamin, who missed his second season with an ACL tear and then struggled through 2016 as the Panthers offense struggled to replicate an impressive 2015 season.

But Benjamin was back with a fury in the Panthers’ Authentic Kevan Miller Jersey preseason opener, skying high for a touchdown catch from Derek Anderson in the first quarter against the Texans to give Carolina a 7-0 lead:

The Falcons made sure to lock up a big piece of their offense on Wednesday, inking running back Devonta Freeman to a new extension that is worth more than $8.5 million per year. That’s great news for Freeman, who was concerned about getting paid as far back as last year’s Super Bowl. It’s also great news because he topped the current running back market, getting more than LeSean McCoy over the life of his contract.

Del Rio went 12-4 and got Oakland to the playoffs in 2016, but the team couldn’t match that this season, finishing 6-10 despite starting the season with Super Bowl hopes.

On Sunday night edition of SportsCenter, Schefter was adamant that Gruden would be the Raiders next head coach, but nothing official has been reported yet. The only question is when it happens, Schefter said.

Things have finally come to a head over four main issues 锟斤拷 the role of Brady’s personal trainer and business partner, Alex Guerrero; the succession plan at quarterback; Belichick’s coaching style; and irreconcilable differences over who’s responsible for the team’s unprecedented success over the years.

Brady’s insistence in recent years that he’ll play into his 40s stems from his relationship with Guerrero, his various training and lifestyle methods, and, as our own Matt Ufford called it, the pseudoscientific grift that Brady and Guerrero have built into a lifestyle business.

The faith Brady espouses in his program and its impact on his career has led to other players feeling pressured to turn to Guerrero and the TB12 method. For some it’s worked fine. Others describe it like a cult.

The Minnesota Vikings are still one win away from having a Super Bowl at home in U.S. Bank Stadium, but Las Vegas bookmakers already are considering the unique possibility. While the Vikings would technically be the away team as the NFC representative, how much of a home-field advantage would they have and how would it be reflected in the point spread?

Speaking with seven Vegas bookmakers, the consensus answer was an additional 1.5-2 points for Minnesota should it reach the Super Bowl, but the responses certainly were varied.

It’s hard to quantify, and it’s something we’ve never had to talk about before, but it’s an interesting conversation, John Murray, oddsmaker and manager at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook said on the Behind The Bets podcast Wednesday. I [think] it’s worth about a point.

The wild-card round of the NFL playoff schedule featured six teams that didn’t make the postseason last year only the Chiefs and Falcons returned as contenders. The Titans, Rams, Bills, Jaguars, Panthers and Saints were the relative newcomers hoping to advance to Round 2. The wild-card results sent Kansas City, Los Angeles, Buffalo and Carolina back home.

The Patriots, Steelers, Eagles and Vikings clinched first-round byes for the playoffs and hosted games in the divisional round. The Patriots, Eagles and Vikings won at home in order to advance and host conference title games, sending the Titans, Falcons and Saints packing. The Steelers, however, lost to the Jaguars at home in the divisional round.

New England is the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the seventh time since 2003. And while the Patriots remain the favorites to reach and win Super Bowl 52, they’re far from a lock. Since the NFL adopted the 12-team playoff format, only 28 of the 54 (51.9 percent) No. 1 seeds have advanced to the Super Bowl. In those 27 seasons, a No. 1 seed has gone on to win the Super Bowl 13 times (48.1 percent).
