    A pro-life advocate drew a lot of eyes to his protest Sunday during a football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars. Journalists covering the game captured photos and videos of the man as he shouted “Vote Republican” and “Stop abortion” from the platform at the base of the stadium stands, just before the game. The man is not named in reports. The man also held a sign, which read: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. – God,” “Stop abortion” and “Vote Republican.” A Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist said the man began his protest right...

    A trio of NFL players have knelt during the national anthem this season, resuming protests against social injustice that have vexed President Trump for the last two years and left Commissioner Roger Goodell and other league officials scrambling for a solution. Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson have knelt during the national anthem every game this season. Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid, who joined Colin Kaepernick during the original kneeling protests in 2016, resumed kneeling before his season debut in Week 5 last Sunday. The three players are slated to earn a combined $16.5 million in 2018,...

    Beto O’Rourke’s response to a question during a Houston town hall meeting this past summer lasted only four minutes. But for some Democrats it said everything. It was authentic. In an exchange that quickly went viral, the Democrat congressman and Senate hopeful was asked whether he found NFL players who knelt during the national anthem to be disrespectful. A passionate O’Rourke told the room of Texans, not necessarily a sympathetic crowd, that he could “think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights.” Clips of his answer were viewed millions of times...

S&Z supermarket currently will not be selling 20 ounce Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. These two items are currently produced with the NFL logo on them. I refuse to sell the product until the logo is removed....

    The mantra for the current NFL champions in Philadelphia may be “fly Eagles, fly,” but last night on Sunday Night Football it was Super Bowl XLVII winners the Baltimore Ravens who hit high notes in tearing the Pittsburgh Steelers apart. In a 26-14 win on SNF, the Ravens are now 3-1 this season and the Keystone State team is near the bottom of the AFC North. The game in Pittsburgh on Sunday also saw another type of bottoming out in the ratings for the league and the NFL, as the primetime Week 4 matchup drew a 12.3/21 in metered-market results...

    " has been the theme throughout much of the first three weeks of the NFL season, roughing the passer penalties were a significant storyline from Monday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While a couple of them were fairly clear violations of contact with the quarterback’s head, others appeared to fall into the vague new definition of the foul that penalizes defenders...
