    • Jewish author: Send Black NFL players to Nigeria
      On October 27, 2017, American Jewish author of 14 books and professor emeritus at the University of Illinois, Robert Weissberg, 76, posted an article at The UNZ Review, entitled, Solving NFL's Anthem Crisis: Send Them to Africa.

      "The NFL seems at a loss on how to deal with the current controversy over players (most of whom are black) knelling ("taking a knee") during the national anthem to protest about American racism, politic brutality, rotten ghetto schools, white privilege and all the rest and hope that this gesture ends the brouhaha," said Weissberg.

    • Texans player: McNair has track record of racially insensitive comments
      http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/10/28/duane-brown-recalls-other-quotes-from-bob-mcnair-that-caused-concern/

      During a Saturday morning phone interview with PFT (which preceded the meeting between McNair and the team), Brown recalled an occasion during his rookie year of 2008, when Barack Obama was elected the nation's first African-American president.

      "He came to talk to the team," Brown said regarding the owner. "He was visibly upset about it. He said, 'I know a lot of y'all are happy right now, but it's not the outcome that some of us were looking for.' That was very shocking to me."

      Brown added that McNair also addressed the team after the scandal that forced Donald Sterling to sell the L.A. Clippers, when racist remarks Sterling made in private became very public.

    • VFW post's bar in StL bans showing NFL TV games

      Sounds like a great community gathering place for people who have a lot in common. And you have a healthy attitude towards interactions there. Keeping busy helping out, rather than running my mouth, is a valuable lesson I saw early on, but still work to apply.

    • COMEBACK: Aryan Goddess Maria Sharapova Wins First WTA Title since Return from Ban
      http://www.reuters.com/article/us-tennis-tianjin/sharapova-wins-first-wta-title-since-return-from-ban-idUSKBN1CK0CA

      The former world number one, who returned to the tour in April following a 15-month doping ban, started the stronger, breaking Sabalenka in her opening service game, but struggled on serve and soon found herself trailing 4-1 in the first set.

      The Russian managed to hold serve for the first time in the match at 4-2 and clung on grimly in the face of some hard hitting by her 19-year-old opponent before converting her fourth break point of the next game to get back on serve at 4-3.

      Her nerves settled, Sharapova began to hit her stride, breaking Sabalenka again to go 6-5 up before closing out the set.

    • Anyone know the name of the One-On-One Overnight Sports Talk Guy back in the 90's?
      Sports talk host Bob Kemp, the former overnight host on the national radio network Sporting News Radio, had a show that aired from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Eastern each weekday. He'd been a member of the network going back to the days when it was known as One on One Sports

      The only subject on Kemp's show was sports, delivered by a person with a demeanor that was surly on his best day. Sometimes it sounded like the idiocies of the sports world left him completely despondent.

      After leaving the network in 2002, Kemp took a few years off and then surfaced on KDUS, a local sports talk station in Tempe, Arizona. He's been an afternoon host there ever since.

      Kemp's show is as dry and plain-spoken as radio gets. Some subjects are banned for discussion because they've been talked to death or lend themselves to inane chatter (at one time the list included Pete Rose, Dennis Rodman, and the Bowl Championship Series).
