ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe said Elias Lindholm Jersey Sunday he believes players should stand for the national anthem but that protests are a "right'' and "to each their ownWolfe sent a statement to ESPN's Josina Anderson that outlined why he stands for the anthem and why he believes others should as well. But Wolfe also addressed those who have knelt or stood during the anthem and may in the future. Wolfe's statement comes after comments during a weekend rally in Alabama from President Donald Trump that players who refuse to stand for the national anthem should be "fired" by NFL owners. The comments have drawn widespread reaction from NFL owners and players as well as commissioner Roger Goodell and former commissioner Paul TagliabueWolfe's statement: "I stand because I respect the men who died in real battles so I have the freedom to battle on the field. Paying tribute to the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom is why I stand. But everyone these days likes to find a reason to protest and that's their right. It's America and you are free to speak your mind. I just feel it's disrespectful to the ones who sacrificed their lives and it's the wrong platform. But like I said to each their own it's AMERICA! The greatest country in the world and if you don't think we are the greatest country in the world and you reside here, then why do you stay? A lot worse places in the world to call home. Proud to be an American.'' After the Broncos' 26-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Wolfe said, as a human being, "we're allowed to feel any way we want to feel about any situation" and that he's based his opinions on social injustices that he's experienced during his lifetime"I come from poverty," Wolfe said. "For me, it's not a black and white thing; it's a rich http://www.officialhurricanesproshop.com/Jaccob_Slavin_Jerseyand poor thing. The social injustices are always toward the less fortunate. People who don't have money are the ones who are looked down upon because they're on government assistance"I was on government assistance my whole life, until I got drafted. I was on food stamps. I had $7 when I got drafted, so I know what it's like [for people] to treat you different, like you're dumb, like you're uneducated. I know what that feels like." Wolfe has previously said he supported people's right to protest, including when linebacker Brandon Marshall knelt during the national anthem before eight games last season in part to protest the use of force by police. Wolfe also has consistently said he personally believes everyone should stand for the anthem. "With the violence that's going on, the protests that are going on, I think that people really need to just sit down and listen to each other," Wolfe said. "Just listen to what each other has to say and maybe we can come up with a plan that will make everybody happy. That's probably not going to happen, because it's impossible to make everybody happyThe predictable: Tom Brady led all quarterbacks in fantasy points through the 1 p.m. ET game block, his 35.72 giving him the 19th instance of at least 30 in his NFL career.

WACO, Texas -- A former Baylor interim president wrote in an email last year that he gained another perspective "of what Throwback Authentic Jersey is going on in the heads of some women who may seem willingly to make themselves victims" after hearing a radio interview with an author who chronicled her alcoholism at college. The remark came in an email exchange last year between David Garland and a Baylor administrator amid lingering allegations that the nation's largest Baptist school repeatedly mishandled or stifled allegations of sexual and physical abuse. The email was obtained by lawyers for 10 women who are suing Baylor contending that the school ignored their allegations and revealed in a court filing this week. The Waco Tribune-Herald first reported on the release of the emailsGarland also cited verses in the New Testament referring to God's wrath on those who commit sexual sin. The plaintiffs in Wednesday's federal court filing argue that it's central to their case that Garland "would conclude that these young women made themselves willing victims of sexual assault" and "would then immediately find http://www.greenbaypackersauthorizedstore.com/womenrelevance in 'God's wrath' upon them." Garland did not return a request for comment from the newspaper. Waco attorney Jim Dunnam, one of the lawyers representing the plaintiffs, said Garland's viewpoint is shared by other Baylor leaders. "Unfortunately it reflects an attitude at the top of the university, which, frankly, anyone who loves Baylor should be disgusted by," he told the newspaper. In a statement released Thursday, the university said, "As stated previously, we will maintain our efforts to keep discovery focused on this specific case while protecting the privacy of our students and their records. This filing is one step in a long process, and out of respect for the legal proceedings in this case, the university will decline to comment further." The university earlier this month settled a federal lawsuit filed by a former student who said she was gang-raped by two football players and alleged the school's football http://www.sandiegochargersauthorizedstore.com/josh-lambo-jersey-elite program fostered a "culture of violence." The settlement was one of several in recent weeks as Baylor moves to close out lawsuits filed following an investigation into how the school handled reports of sexual and physical assaults for years. The inquiry led to the firing of football coach Art Briles and the departure of former school president Ken Starr. Garland is on sabbatical and scheduled to return to Baylor in August to teach. Linda Livingstone has been named the new Baylor president. In an interview with ESPN in July 2016, Garland was asked about Baylor's student code of conduct -- including its punishment for drinking -- that was identified as a barrier to women reporting sexual assaults, which was mentioned in the findings from the school's investigation by law firm Pepper Hamilton into how Baylor handled allegations of sexual violence. "We understand not to blame the victim, also to understand the trauma and be sensitive to that and not to be judgmental," Garland said. "And the purpose is to turn a victim into a survivor and to thrive. ... I want to stop them from ever being victimized." In the July 2016 interview, he said that he was "fairly na?ve" because he teaches at the seminary, but that one of his faculty members said that if he taught New Testament, he should, "understand about the fallenness of humankind and I should be more realistic about what actually happens," and that he understood the concerns about the school's student code of conduct enforcement regarding alcohol and sexual assault. He went on to mention a segment he heard on NPR about a book called, "Blackout" -- the same book that was referenced in the emails released as part of the court case this week. "Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget" was a 2016 book by Sarah Hepola chronicling the author's personal experience with episodes of drinking excessive amounts of alcohol to the point which she blacked out. "Here's somebody who would drink and black out," Garland said. "But what was interesting is she seemed to have the effect of being perfectly conscious. It was absolutely eye opening to me because she would have absolutely no memory whatsoever of what happened. So the question is, 'How do you get consent in that kind of (situation)?' The whole issue is extremely complex." Information from The Junior Seau JerseyAssociated Press and ESPN's Paula Lavigne was used in this report

The British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa in 2021 will be cut to eight matches in a move that will be welcomed by England’s Premiership Ricky Romero Womens Jersey clubs, but future trips could be restored to 10 fixtures with the four home unions keeping their options open.Talks with New Zealand, Australia and South Africa about an agreement to cover the three tours in the next 12 years are approaching a conclusion. The Lions have come under pressure from the Premiership, which secured the backing of the Rugby Football Union, to cut the duration of tours and reduce the load on leading players.The Lions toured New Zealand this summer and played 10 matches but the first was staged three days after their arrival with the players so jet-lagged that at least one fell asleep on the coach to the game against an invitation side in Whangarei. The squad did not have one training session as a whole group before flying out because of the Premiership and the then Pro12 finals, but in 2021 the tourists will leave on a Tuesday and not play for at least a week. It has yet to be decided whether to play the first match in South Africa on a Wednesday and have no midweek matches after the first Test or start on a Saturday and have a game in between the first two internationals.One of the reasons why the Lions have agreed to cut the number of fixtures is the belief that South Africa, unlike New http://www.officialmlbgiantshop.com/authentic-22-will-clark-jersey.html Zealand this year, would struggle to field seven teams of sufficient strength outside the Tests. The country has suffered an exodus of players to Europe and Japan this decade and this year cut two teams, the Cheetahs and the Southern Kings, from its Super Rugby roster. They have since joined the Celtic unions and Italy to form the Pro14, but both Men's #16 Nike Elite Denard Robinson Black NFL Jersey - Alternate Jacksonville Jaguars have struggled this month.The 2025 tour to Australia is also likely to be eight fixtures based on the current strength of the game there, but nothing is set in stone because of the fluid nature of international rugby. The thought is if New Zealand rugby remains strong, it would be worth playing 10 matches there in 2029. “Each tour will be looked at on its merits,” one administrator said. “We will be keeping an open mind. A shorter tour means longer preparation time and clearly Jonathan Ericsson Womens Jersey had the Lions been in South Africa this year, it is unlikely that there would have been the 10 meaningful fixtures that there were in New Zealand where the strength of the warm-up teams meant the Lions went into the Test series battle-hardened.”The Rugby Football Union proposed the reduction to eight matches earlier this year, bearing the message of its leading clubs who said after this year’s tour that they were not willing Redwing Jersey to Redwing Authentic Jersey move Giants Jersey the Giants Authentic Jersey date of the Premiership final to accommodate the Lions in the future and that if the tourists wanted more preparation time, they had to cut the number of fixtures.The clubs lost a battle last week when the RFU’s proposal to shorten England’s Six Nations campaign to six weeks by missing the first round and playing France on the first fallow weekend was dismissed without a debate. The matter went straight to a vote without anyone speaking up in favour of the union’s proposal and was lost 5-1. The RFU faces having to pay the clubs compensation because the six-week Six Nations campaign was part of the elite player agreement the two sides signed last year. The governing body’s failure to secure support means the England head coach will have his squad for an extra week.The Jaguars did not let up and went even further ahead at the start of the fourth quarter http://www.authenticredwingstore.com/justin-abdelkader-jersey_c-481.html as the running back Leonard Fournette ran in from close range. There was time for a consolation score for the Ravens with three minutes remaining but by then the wind had been sucked from them and the game.http://www.vksnv.sk/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=20616#20616http://www.nakufeel.net/forum/topic.php?topic_id=9329
CHICAGO -- In a sign of solidarity, the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the locker room during the national anthem before their 1 p.m. ET Adidas James Reimer Womens Jersey kickoff with the Chicago Bears. Players for the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans did the same before their game. An NFL official told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that no fines are being considered for those players who stayed in the locker room during the anthemAs the anthem began in Soldier Field, several Steelers coaches were on the sideline, including head coach Mike Tomlin, while the players were not present. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley, offensive line coach Mike Munchak and running backs coach James Saxon also were spotted. Players took the field within a few seconds of the anthem's end, just after fireworks launched; quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was one of the first players out of the tunnel. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, an Army Ranger who served in Afghanistan, was seen on the CBS broadcast at the edge of the tunnel during the anthem, hand over heart. Roethlisberger made it a point of emphasis after the Steelers' 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears to say that the team's decision was a unified one, and that he has the "utmost respect" for "our troops and those that serve this country." In Nashville, the Seahawks and Titans both issued statements saying http://www.authenticfloridapanthers.com/authentic-jaromir-jagr-jersey their players were united in their actions"As a team, we have decided we will not participate in the national anthem," the Seahawks' statement said. "We will not stand for the injustice that has plagued people of color in this country. Out of love for our country and in honor of the sacrifices made on our behalf, we unite to oppose those that would deny our most basic freedoms. We remain committed in continuing to work towards equality and justice for all." Seahawks general manager John Schneider said in a pregame radio interview that coach Pete Carroll met with a few players individually Saturday, prior to a "pretty emotional" meeting by the entire team later that night. The Seahawks walked onto the field after the anthem with players locking arms. "We showed we have power as people and that's what we were doing today. I think that it was super impressive," Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett said after the Seahawks' 33-27 loss. The Titans took a similar http://www.officialcalgaryflames.com/Adidas-Deryk-Engelland-Jersey approach with their statement. "As a team, we wanted to be unified in our actions today. The players jointly decided this was the best course of action. Our commitment to the military and our community is resolute and the absence of our team for the national anthem shouldn't be misconstrued as unpatriotic." Steelers coach told CBS' Jamie Erdahl before the game that the team wanted to "remove ourselves from the circumstance" and means no disrespect. "We're not going to play politics," Tomlin said. "We're football players, we're football coaches. We're not participating in the anthem today -- not to be disrespectful to the anthem, but to remove ourselves from the circumstance. "People shouldn't have to choose. 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 chooses not to." The Steelers did not protest the anthem last year and had stayed relatively neutral on the national discussion, but President Donald Trump's verbal attack on NFL players who protest appears to have changed things. Team president Art Rooney II released a statement regarding the pregame protestSeveral Steelers leaders, including defensive end Cameron Heyward, linebacker James Harrison and others, were involved in the discussion about Sunday's protest, one team source said. Those discussions took hold Saturday as the team traveled to Chicago and got situated at the team hotel. "We will not be divided by this," Tomlin said after the game. "We've got a group of men in there that come from different socio-economic backgrounds, races, creeds, ethnicities, religions and so forth. That's football. That's a lot of team sports. But because of our position we get drug into bulls---, to be quite honest with you. Some have opinions; some don't. We wanted to protect those who don't and we wanted to protect those who do."

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors forwards Kevin Durant and Robert Parish Womens Jersey Andre Iguodala support the NFL players who have chosen to kneel in a peaceful protest during the national anthem in the aftermath of President Donald Trump's Twitter attacks. "Sports is the United States. Sports is what brings us all together," Durant said Sunday after training camp practice. "A couple hours out of the day, you see people from different walks of life coming together and celebrating a sport. That's what it's all about. Obviously, wins and losses and who's the best, that stuff is fine, but the bigger picture in sports, it just brings us all together, and you get to enjoy each other for a couple hours. And I think our NFL players are doing a great job of sending a great message, and we stand behind them as athletes, and we support them as well." Trump sent out a series of Tweets the past few days urging NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to order players to stand. And if they refused to comply, he suggested to fire or suspend them. But arguably his most flammable comments on the matter occurred at a rally on Friday, when he said: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's firedOn Sunday, players across the league responded by opting to take a knee or a seat. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans stayed in the locker room during the national anthem. The Seattle Seahawks said they will not participate in the anthem ceremony, and owners from around the league have issued statements condemning Trump's rhetoric. "I think you see http://www.officialmagicstoreonline.com/Jodie_Meeks_Jerseypeople uniting and coming together," Iguodala said. "And before, those have been afraid to take a stand because they didn't want it to affect their brand or affect their family. They felt like it would have some type of effect on their compensation or their image. I think what it's shown is that we're not going to accept the issue that has been ignored for so long and that's been done in our face so many times So, I think it's good to see them uniting and in one accord. There's a lot of power in that, when everyone is on the same page." The Warriors, and more specifically Stephen Curry, are all too familiar with the Twitter wrath of Trump. Even though players would have voted to not visit the White House to celebrate their championship, Trump got to his phone before the team could take a vote and tweeted Saturday morning: "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating; therefore invitation is withdrawnMost of the players were amused. Durant, who has been vocal about his displeasure toward Trump and his actions, said he has Curry's back. "My reaction was we stand behind Steph, obviously," Durant said. "That's our brother, our teammate, and he's our leader. We follow behind him, and we stand behind him. We support him in this time. It's a crazy, crazy world we're living in, especially when our president just goes at people on Twitter. But that's just the nature of the beast right now. I'm very proud of how our organization handled everything, all the players handled Glenn Hubbard Authentic Jersey everything. At the end of the day, we want our voices to be heard, and we want to play basketball and inspire people to be better. And I think playing for the Warriors, playing at the highest level of basketball, it allows us to impact people on another level. So if we focus on that and also using our voice for good, it makes me proud to be a part of this organization." He later reiterated his stance on Trump: "I just don't agree with the president that's in office right now. I don't believe in what he believes in, and I'm all about equality. I'm not a big politics guy, but I know right from wrong, and I think I know how most people want to be treated." Some NFL players even wore black pregame "#IMWITHKAP" T-shirts in an effort to show solidarity with free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the kneeling to protest police brutality and racial injustice last season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. "It just raises awareness," Iguodala said. "They got away from that. They tried to make it about a different issue. Those that weren't in favor of what Kap and what other guys were taking a stand for, but he had a message behind it, and they didn't want to hear that message because it was so true and hit so close to home. But that's what it's all about. But like I said before, when it's thrown in your face so many times and so blatantly, it comes to a point when you have to stop walking backwards." Steve Kerr said there have not been any conversations about the team taking knees during the anthem or any other methods of protesting peacefully. He did add that if his players wanted to talk about it, he would listen and be open. If they decide to protest, it doesn't appear that the champs will go the knee route"Our faces are shown more, so when we do speak, with the nature of the NBA right now, you hear us a little bit more because you recognize our face," Iguodala said. "When Kap did take that stand, not that he became more popular, but his name became more reoccurring because you can see his face now attached to that. You can see our face already, and we have other avenues we can go down. Not that we wouldn't, but it just isn't ours." Durant said he doesn't know if the team will end up doing something, but if they agree on a demonstration, his objective is to promote equality. "We have a huge platform, and people watch us on TV. We want to spread a great message, a message of equality," Durant said. "We want to do this thing together, man. It's simple. It's not about parties or anything. People just want to be treated equally and fair. And not by the color of their skin or what they worship or who they are, just for them being people, we want everybody http://www.officialcardinalsbaseball.com/authentic-29-chris-carpenter-jersey.html to be together and equal. It's great that our NFL players and NBA players are standing together and using our platforms for good

If they decide to protest, it doesn't appear that the champs will go the knee route"Our faces are shown more, so when we do speak, with the nature of the NBA right now, you hear us a little bit more because you recognize our face," Iguodala said. "When Kap did take that stand, not that he became more popular, but his name became more reoccurring because you can see his face now attached to that. You can see our face already, and we have other avenues we can go down. Not that we wouldn't, but it just isn't ours." Durant said he doesn't know if the team will end up doing something, but if they agree on a demonstration, his objective is to promote equality. "We have a huge platform, and people watch us on TV. We want to spread a great message, a message of equality," Durant said. "We want to do this thing together, man. It's simple. It's not about parties or anything. People just want to be treated equally and fair. And not by the color of their skin or what they worship or who they are, just for them being people, we want everybody to be together and equal. It's great that our NFL Cal Ripken Womens Jerseyplayers and NBA players are standing together and using our platforms for good

PHILADELPHIA -- Odell Beckham Jr.'s first touchdown of the season didn't Jacob Larsson Womens Jersey come without a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. The New York Giants wide receiver caught a 10-yard pass early in the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles, dragging both feet in the end zone, and in his celebration, he appeared to walk like a dog and simulated a dog urinating on the field"I'm a dog, so I acted like a dog. I don't know if the rulebook said you can't hike your leg. He said I peed on somebody, so I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on. But I didn't see him," Beckham told reporters following the Giants' 27-24 loss. "Either way it goes, you play football. I wear red and white. I don't wear black and white. I don't make calls. I just play football." Beckham didn't think there was anything wrong with the celebration. "We needed to make a play. We're down, what, 14-0? We need a play. We need a spark. I don't care if you kick it from the 5-yard line on our side." The Giants were penalized 15 yards on the ensuing kickoff. The Eagles returned that to the 29-yard line"It does [pick up a penalty]," Beckham said. "[Kicker Aldrick] Rosas covered it. It didn't end up being detrimental, which is the main thing." Giants coach Ben McAdoo said he didn't have an opinion on the unsportsmanlike penalty. "I'm going to have to see what took place there," he said. He did see the http://www.nflbengalsofficialshop.com/Nike-John-Ross-Jersey.html result. "We don't want to be kicking off from the 20-yard line," McAdoo said. "That's not smart football, and we aren't playing smart football." Beckham finished Sunday's game with 9 receptions for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Eagles won when Jake Elliott kicked a 61-yard field goal as time expired. Beckham missed his team's opener because of an ankle injury. He returned last Monday night against the Detroit Lions but was limited. He said he felt better on Sunday, and it showed. Beckham scored again late in the quarter on a one-handed, acrobatic catch in the corner of the end zone, and afterward, he raised his fist in the air to celebrate. "Did it look like it [had meaning]?" he said. "OK. Well, if it looked like it, then it might have been something." Three Giants -- defensive tackle Damon Harrison, safety Landon http://www.officialauthenticsaintsstore.com/Nike-Bobby-Hebert-Jersey.html Collins and defensive end Olivier Vernon -- knelt Sunday during the national anthem, marking the first time any Giants players visibly protested during "The Star-Spangled Banner." The protest, one of several around the NFL on Sunday, came in the wake of President Donald Trump's recent comments and James Wisniewski Jersey tweets on NFL player protests during the anthem

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Von Miller has had plenty of days when Ted Ginn Jr Womens Jersey he's helped lift the Denver Broncos to a win, but Sunday he quickly took the Broncos' rather homely 26-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills and put it squarely on his own shoulders. Miller's unsportsmanlike conduct penalty kept a fourth-quarter Bills' drive going -- the Broncos would have forced a punt without the penalty -- and 10 plays later the Bills kicked a field goal that made their seven-point lead a 10-point lead with just over three minutes remaining in the game. "I can't put my team in situations like that,'' Miller said. "... I've got to be smarter than that. I'm always on the rookies and the young guys about being smart, doing this, doing that. And in a crucial situation in the game -- I've just got to be better than that ... I killed the game today with that play. I've just got to be better than thatThe Broncos, who trailed 23-16 at the time, had put the Bills into a third-and-5 situation at the Denver 46-yard line. Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor dropped back and was trying to get the ball to wide receiver Jordan Matthews when Miller crashed into the quarterback. Taylor's throw fell incomplete and the Broncos appeared to have forced http://www.officialauthenticsaintsstore.com/Nike-Trey-Hendrickson-Jersey.html a punt in what was still going to be a one-possession game. Miller, who said he and Taylor had been "laughing and joking" all game, then offered Taylor his hand to help him before he quickly pulled it away. As soon as the linebacker pulled his hand away, referee Carl Cheffers threw the flag. "I didn't see it, but how [the officials] explained it to me, I guess Von gave him a hand to help the guy up and he moved the hand away,'' said Broncos coach Vance Joseph. "He called it, so I guess that's what he thought it was. It's pro football, but he called itThe penalty kept the Bills' offense on the field and moved the ball to the Broncos' 31-yard line. The Bills steadily moved the ball to the Broncos' 9-yard line, and from there Steven Hauschka kicked a 27-yard field goal to give the Bills a 10-point lead with just over three minutes left. "I know Tyrod ... I don't even talk to quarterbacks, I don't do anything with quarterbacks,'' Miller said. "But Tyrod, we were laughing and joking the whole game and on that play I just http://www.authentichurricanestore.com/elias-lindholm-jersey_c-436.html made a very, very crucial mistake at a vital point in the game ... I've got to be a better sportsman and I just can't put my team in that situation.'' Taylor confirmed that he and Miller were laughing throughout the game"Yeah, me and Von came out the same year. Good friends. We was actually laughing on the field. I don't think he knew. I honestly didn't know at the time it was going to be a flag. Like I said, we were laughing. But [it] ended up working out in our favor, so just a bad play by him at the time. Pretty sure he wishes he could have that back, but got to move forward," he said. When asked if he was laughing because it was funny or because they threw the flag, Taylor said: "Both. Both, for sure.'' Miller finished with six tackles and a sack in the game.
