By now youve heard about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the national anthem. He has said hell continue to sit until he sees a significant change in the treatment of people of color in our country.Reactions to Kaepernicks protest have been swift and strong, with many seeming to condemn the act without bothering to listen to the motivation.Some complained about him criticizing a country that has afforded him the opportunity to make millions of dollars playing football. Kaepernick said hes not speaking for himself but for those without a platform: Ive been blessed to be able to get this far and have the privilege of being in the NFL and making the kind of money I make and enjoy luxuries like that. I cant look in the mirror and see other people dying in the street that should have the same opportunities that Ive had and say, you know what, I can live with myself.Others have claimed that Kaepernicks act was disrespectful to U.S. troops. Kaepernick said he has great respect for our military, which has had his family and friends among its ranks. They fight for freedom, they fight for the people, they fight for liberty and justice, for everyone. Thats not happening. People are dying in vain because this country isnt holding their end of the bargain up.Ever since the story broke Friday night, it seems everyones been eager to give a take. NFL coaches and players -- including Drew Brees -- have weighed in with their criticisms of the act, the message or both. Some players have said they support his message, but not the forum.The NFL communitys discussions about Kaepernicks actions stand in stark contrast to the responses many players and coaches have given when asked about domestic abuse in the NFL. Some players reacted strongly to the video of Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City elevator. Some said theyd rather not have Greg Hardy in their locker room after photos surfaced of his then-girlfriends visible bruising the night of his alleged assault. But for the most part, when asked about incidents of domestic violence -- even those documented in photos or video -- players stay mum or claim they dont have enough information to criticize.Dr. Eric M. Carter, an associate professor of sociology at Georgetown College in Kentucky, spoke to the New York Times about the relative silence among pro athletes when it comes to hot-button issues like the Rice video. Why dont we see more collective action among athletes? said Carter. Because theyve got too much to lose individually, or at least they perceive they have too much to lose individually.Carter interviewed over 100 players for his 2009 book, Boys Gone Wild: Fame, Fortune and Deviance Among Professional Football Players and said job security is a big reason players keep quiet. I think its part of that We all have short careers, weve got to get what we want right now mentality. Weve got to protect ourselves, in that sense, Carter told the Times. Maybe it comes off as protecting their teammates, which is what we would all like to think, that theres this real social bond that exists among these guys, but maybe not so much as youd think.Were seeing that again now with Giants kicker Josh Brown, who has been suspended one game after a May 2015 arrest on a charge of assault in the fourth degree/domestic violence, for which he was suspended one game by the NFL on Wednesday. Browns ex-wife told police that he had been physically violent with her in more than 20 instances over the past several years.Said Giants defensive end Jason Pierre Paul: Were all family around here. People have their own problems to handle. Hes still our brother and we look past it.Said Giants QB Eli Manning: I dont think there is a whole lot to say. To the team, if Josh wants to say something, he can explain his case. I dont know a whole lot of details about what happened. I know hes been suspended and thats about all I know.Said Giants guard Justin Pugh: Obviously, you have to be there for your teammate. I dont want to get too into it because I dont know all the details ... but all we can do is support our teammate and make sure were there for him.Pugh did get into the Kaepernick situation, though, tweeting about how hell be sure to stand for the anthem.Ben McAdoo, who said shortly after taking over the Giants head-coaching gig that he wouldnt tolerate domestic violence, has made one statement on Browns abusive incident: I do support Josh as a man, a father and a player.Yet McAdoo had plenty to say about Kaepernicks protest on Monday, including this: Id be disappointed if one of our guys chose not to stand. Kaepernick speaking up for those without a voice is disappointing, but Brown earns McAdoos full support. Huh.It may not be surprising that while Browns coach and teammates are unwilling to speak out against him, no one else in the league has criticized the Giants, either, for re-signing their kicker to a two-year deal.Back in 2014, even Kaepernick himself played the not my business card when asked about the release of teammate Ray McDonald the day it was learned he was being investigated on suspicion of sexual assault. McDonald had previously been investigated for domestic violence.Hes a good friend to a lot of people on this team. No one thought bad of him, Kaepernick said then. Hopefully its just a misunderstanding. ... I understand why the team did what it did. Other than that, its not my business.Violence against women, like racial oppression, should be everyones business. And we should be able to talk freely about these issues.The fact that players are jumping at the chance in 2016 to speak out about Kaepernicks protest proves its not just about the desire to keep quiet for the sake of job security. The key is whether theyre willing to listen to the disenfranchised, be it a survivor of domestic abuse or a target of police brutality.I look forward to the day when people stand up and demand justice for people with the same passion they display in defending symbols. After all, whats the point of defending the American flag if youre not invested in protecting the very people it represents? Whats the use in defending the freedoms our anthem promises if youre not willing to listen to those who arent truly free?Standing for the anthem is easy because its expected. Loving your country enough to want to make it better is real patriotism. Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys .

Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. NEW YORK -- Bryan Mitchell was on the verge of making the New York Yankees out of spring training. Then he spent the next four months working his way back from toe surgery.The culmination of his recovery is pitching in a playoff race.Mitchell will be on the mound Monday night when Yankees open a three-game interleague series with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Yankee Stadium.Mitchell injured the toe during the final week of spring training, costing him a spot on the opening day roster. He finally returned to the Yankees on Wednesday and allowed four hits in five-plus scoreless innings in a 2-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.Mitchell became the third Yankee since 2010 to throw at least five scoreless innings in a season debut but the first since Dave Eiland in 1990 to do so in a season debut that took place in September.It feels weird coming back at this point in the season, Mitchell said. Were in this chase right now. Every game is important. Once I finally got out of the game, it was pretty rewarding looking back on the season. It feels really good.While Eiland did it as the 67-95 Yankees were playing out the string and finishing with the worst record in baseball, Mitchell did it in the midst of New Yorks attempt to get back to the playoffs. Mitchells performance helped the Yankees to a fourth straight win in what ultimately became a seven-game winning streak.The streak ended with a 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. Luis Cessa gave up three home runs and the Yankees offense consisted of Chase Headleys 14th home run and Brett Gardners RBI single.While losing for the fifth time in 18 games might be shrugged off, every defeat gets magnified this time of year. The Yankees are four game behind Boston in the AL East and two behind Baltimore in the wild-card race and those teams are facing each other at Fenway Park.Every loss hurts just because its a day that you dont make up any ground or you lose ground, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Every loss stings just because of how few games are left.The Dodgers have been in first place every day since Aug. 21, have won 13 of their last 20 games and lead the San Francisco Giants by three games in the National League West.Los Angeles had an interresting weekend in Miami as Clayton Kershaw returned from the disabled on Friday, Rich Hill was pulled after seven perfect innings on Saturday and the offense did not get its first hit until the fifth inning against Jose Urena.ddddddddddddThe Dodgers have played interleague games in Toronto and Tampa Bay this season. Manager Dave Roberts has used five players at designated hitter but hinted Justin Turner and Andre Ethier could get starts there.Turner did not play Sunday, but he is batting .302 with 22 home runs and 59 RBI in his last 75 games since June 10. Ethier was activated from the disabled list and was 0-for-3 in his season debut.Los Angeles has used 13 different starting pitchers this year and Jose DeLeon makes his second career start. DeLeon won his major league debut on Sept. 4 against San Diego, allowing four runs (three earned) and five hits in six innings. He had nine strikeouts, the second most by a Dodger in his debut only behind the 10 Kazuhisa Ishii had in 2002 and Pedro Astacio had in 1992.Im happy for him, said Los Angeles catcher Austin Barnes, who also caught De Leon at Triple-A Oklahoma City this year. Hes fun to catch. He was pounding his fastball early in the count and hes got a great change-up.Before joining the Dodgers, DeLeon was 7-1 with a 2.61 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 16 starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.The teams have met in the World Series in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 1953, 1955 and 1956 when the Dodgers were based in Brooklyn. The Yankees won each of those except for 1955 when Johnny Podres pitched a shutout in Game 7 in original Yankee Stadium.Since moving from Brooklyn, the Dodgers and Yankees met in the 1963, 1977, 1978 and 1981 World Series. The Yankees won in 1977 and 1978, and the Dodgers won in 1963 and 1981.In the regular season, the teams have split 10 meetings, with eight taking place at Dodger Stadium. The only time Los Angeles visited Yankee Stadium was June 18, 2013, when Yasiel Puig went 4-for-9 and hit home run off Adam Warren in the second game of a doubleheader.
