    Houston Texans owner Bob McNair walked back his apology for his comment last year comparing NFL players to “inmates running the prison," a statement he made regarding players protesting by refusing to stand for the national anthem. McNair immediately apologized for that comment after severe backlash, but has changed his tune since then. “The main thing I regret is apologizing,” McNair said to the Wall Street Journal. McNair claims the comments were directed towards NFL executives who felt he was exerting more power than the other owners.

    Texans players met late Saturday to discuss how to protest as a team against Houston’s owner Bob McNair over his controversial “inmates running the prison” comment. “The players could decide to all kneel together, and also discussed peeling the Texans decal off of their helmets or raising their fists,” according to ESPN. Whatever their demonstration winds up being, it won’t be revealed before the game against the Seahawks. McNair apologized for his words multiple time this weekend, saying: “I am truly sorry to the players for how this has impacted them and the perception that it has created of me,...

    Houston Texans owner Bob McNair apologized, but his regrettable comments won’t be forgotten by his players that easily. McNair reportedly said, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison” during last week’s meetings between players and owners over the national anthem issue. McNair said he was using a figure of speech, but anyone should be able to understand why players wouldn’t be so quick to forgive. The Texans considered a walkout Friday, according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN, and star receiver DeAndre Hopkins did leave. Texans coach Bill O’Brien said Hopkins took a “personal day” after he wasn’t seen at...

The donation comes at a time when the NFL has been publicly promoting acceptance of gay players and Michael Sam, the league's first openly gay player, was drafted last year.

    Leave it to some loony leftist like Mike Lupica to try to use the tragic events surrounding Steve McNair's death as an occasion to complain about guns. McNair's death is not a result of gun culture. Guns were the least of the myriad problems. The issue that should be brought to light by the murder of Mr. McNair is the overarching cultural collapse we're seeing in our country. As cliche' as it will sound, our culture is in trouble. Of course, those on the political Left hate to hear people talk about cultural issues. No doubt they will lie in...

    Steve McNair, dead by gun now in America, came out of Mount Olive, Miss., whose population still came up short of 1,000 when McNair made it to the Super Bowl with the Tennessee Titans in January 2000. When I called the town hall that year, I asked the woman who answered the phone how long downtown was in Mount Olive. "Eight blocks," she said. "Ten if you stretch it." When I asked her about the biggest intersection in town, she said that the biggest intersection wasn't even in town. "Biggest intersection in Mount Olive," she said, "is where [State Road]...
