In an attempt to placate a dedicated organization, in earlier months former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis advised Colin Kaepernick to put his political views aside and just play football.

After dropping to both knees during Sunday’s protest a petition to remove the man who changed the modern LB position’s statue has to be protected by state police. Fans who continue to use the excuse of a player or former player in this case of disrespecting the flag or the anthem to make threats and cause mayhem.

Why don’t racist fans just say, we want to do whatever to you and we want you to shut up and take it. That would cut through and clarify so that we all could make a decision as to how things should go from there.

Why did the Arizona crowd Boo during Cowboy's protests?

Why did the Arizona fans boo when the Cowboys kneeled before the national anthem and flag ceremony? 

It’s simply mass hypnosis. 

Some people fall under the belief that the right is right and some the left.  Some identify with white is right and others think differently.  However, these superficial associations have seemingly forced people to fight for issues they hardly understand. 

Mr. Trump celebrated the angry crowds’ behavior saying, “(booing) was loudest I have ever heard.  Great anger.”

NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant has been under the media microscope since he sent out a series of tweets in which he is speaking about his old team the Oklahoma City Thunder and why he left.  Interestingly, in the tweets he used third person voice. 

When asked if he got accounts mixed up or simply forgot to log off his verified account he said no, it’s just the way he said it.  No trickery involved. 

He talked about his former coach Billy Donovan saying, "didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan," which has caused him to not eat or sleep since the incident according to recent reports.  The storm launched when an anonymous complainer said, "give me one legitimate reason for leaving okc other than getting a championship.”  He immediately deleted the responses.

A legend has passed.  Jake LaMotta the one time boxing champion has died at the age of 95.  The tough pugilist life was repeated with the actor legend Robert De Niro in the film “Raging Bull.” 

He died in Miami on Tuesday in Miami according to his family.   

The brawler was a product of New York City and first learned he had something special on the mean streets of New York and in reform school as a youth.  The 5’8” fighter went home with a middleweight championship belt in 1949, and was at the top of the list of some of the most successful attempts at the great white hope.

As an American elder he once told the Chicago Sun-Times, “The punches never hurt me. My nose was broken six times, my hands six times, a few fractured ribs. Fifty stitches over my eyes. But the only place I got hurt was out of the ring.”

Canelo Alverez vs. Gennady Golovkin, was one for the ages.  For some real diehard boxing enthusiasts this is the boxing match of the year.

Heavy handed Golovkin retained his middleweight titles on Saturday night, in a draw the drew ire and complaints when the scoring became known.   True boxing fans enjoyed the fight saying that it is one of the better fights of the year. GGG is naturally the larger man and the two boxers stayed squarely in their own fight plans.  Despite Mike Tysons quote, "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth."

Golovkin seemed to get winded at times as the 35-year-old battled against one of the top boxers in the world.  Golovkin maintained his belts scoring 115-114, Golovkin, 114-114 and 118-110.  The final score came from Adalaide Byrd, and she has taken verbal beatings from boxing folk around the world.

The New York Giants and their huge fan base took a loss on Week 1 versus America’s team the Dallas Cowboys with a hobbling Odell Beckham Jr. who didn’t dress out, but ran a few routes during warm up and solidified to the world that he has a serious issue that has not yet healed.   However, second year man Sterling Shepard showed up and took the pressure for the ailing receiver.  

The investment the Giants organization made on the defensive side of the ball has clearly paid off as evidenced against the high octane Dak Prescott Cowboys offense.
