    Adam. Your story on the comments Ray Lewis had about Colin Kaepernick had some errors. Here is how it should have read:

    "Despite what a prominent black athlete who grew up in the inner city thinks, as a white man living in my parent's basement, I know what Colin Kaepernick's real motivation is when it comes to his protest. It has nothing to do with disrespecting our military by telling them what they fight for (our country) isn't worth his effort to stand and show respect for. It isn't that everyone should buy a pair of those sweet Pig Cop socks and rock the protest like Kap. It isn't that he has more respect for an oppressive dictator than he does for the men and women who protect our neighborhoods. It isn't that he wants to be an inspiration to young black men everywhere to disrespect those who protect and serve."

    "What his motivation really is will unfortunately not be answered by my article because he's not actually offering any suggestions or solutions to the problems he is protesting against. Come to think of it, no one who's joined in his protest has offered any suggestions either. They are all more than willing to insult our country, our citizens, and our law enforcement officers, but they then expect those insults to somehow transform into meaningful change."

    I do not personally agree with the BLM agenda, because I don't believe their agenda is to bring us together as a country. I believe their dream is that "black society" becomes separate but equal. Decades ago, MLK made the "I have a dream" speech. I don't believe that MLK's dream was a separate but equal society, where black people have their own culture, their own neighborhoods, their own schools, their own music, their own TV, etc. That is a racist's dream. MLK's dream was for us to merge together to become one people, Americans. Not, African-Americans, European-Americans, Asian-Americans and Hispanic-Americans. Just Americans. I will always stand and respect the flag, not just for the sake of those who died for it, but for the sake of those who live for it.

    Regarding your report that Santa Clara PD might boycott the football team with that player who did not stand to respect the USA Anthem. That Player wore socks showing Police as PIGS because of that player's opinions about The Police Department and society.
    If the police boycott those games , then the team owners will have to hire private security to control some crowds. In a short time the owners could encourage that player to stand for The USA national anthem and remove those sox with the "pig" decorations. I think that people who disagree with that football player mght stop buying tickets when he plays, and the team owners will have their revenue reduced. Then watch what happens. Case Closed

    Adam, you wrote in your Prince Fielder story "In a bit of sad irony, Baseball-Reference.com noted that Fielder's 319 career home runs are the same as his father, Cecil Fielder, when his career ended." Please note that this is not irony, it is coincidence. Thanks.

    I think the story that's being missed is about the NBA sidestepping the rules on the Draymond call.

    I believe that the picture in the article below is not Curtis Modkins, but Detroit OLine coach Ron Prince.

    Hey dummy. It's just Russia Track and Field that may miss the Rio Olympics. Not the entire Russian team. This is a HUGE mistake in your article! Shape-up!

    Why block the comment section of your recent Thabo Sefolosha? What is so sensitive about this topic? We, as the citizens of the US, should have every right to comment about an issue that impacts ALL of us....police brutality! To disallow us to comment in this article almost smells of advocation of a police state where the citizens have no rights or a voice.
