    If you listen to most of the sports world, Colin Kaepernick got a raw deal after launching his anthem protests in 2016. However, if you listen to former star wide receiver Antonio Brown, he’ll tell you the former protester has had it good. Speaking on an episode of ThisIs50, Brown was asked about the league’s alleged blackballing of Kaepernick in response to his protests in the supposed pursuit of social justice. Though instead of blasting the NFL, Brown pointed out the lucrative TV and book deals Kaepernick has received while pointing out that the former anthem protester doesn’t come from the streets. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Thisis50.com (@thisis50) The interviewer definitely seemed thrown by Brown’s refutation of Kaepernick’s victimhood status.

Kaepernick also grew up in a reportedly comfortable suburban environment...

It was released one month before a video made the rounds filmed in Nashville, Tennessee that saw Morgan saying racial slurs. "When I started this album, I was a kid.

    Demi Moore turns 59: Stars who just dont seem to age Elon Musk just sold $5 billion in Tesla stock, but he made plans weeks before asking his Twitter followers whether he should sell 10% of his shares © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad On Sunday the Cowboys blocked a Broncos punt, but the ball ended up going back to the Broncos because a Cowboys player touched the ball after it had crossed the line of scrimmage. It was an obscure rule that few knew. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was not a fan of a rule that rewards a team for getting its punt blocked. “It’s a very odd rule because it rewards the team that makes the bad play,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’s a fundamental premise of rule making is that we try to not have these plays that you shouldn’t be rewarded for reward you. In that particular case, you could envision — smiling here — you could...

    The memories poured out of Dan Evans like Niagara Falls on Friday: Interviewing Kim Ng for an internship 30 years ago at the brand new Comiskey Park II, as his 3-month-old daughter slept in his office. Watching Ng rise with the White Sox, then with the Yankees, then again with Evans at the Dodgers before she did more good work at Major League Baseball’s headquarters. Cheering her on as she interviewed for general manager after general manager opening, without getting an offer. Watching her grind through the indignities that, sadly, came with being such a highly ranked Asian American woman in an industry dominated by white men, including one horrific night at the 2003 general managers’ meetings when a recently hired (and soon to be fired) Mets executive named Bill Singer drunkenly confronted her with sexist and racist rage. “For those days,” Evans said in a telephone interview, “I am thankful she stuck with it.” This day, Friday, was one heck of a day in the baseball world, as Ng reunited with an old work associate named Derek Jeter to...

    Virginia Roberts claims she spent two days alone with Prince Andrew at Jeffrey Epstein's New Mexico ranch, where she was directed to 'entertain him endlessly' and give him 'erotic massages', according to unsealed court documents.
