    导出博客文章NFL players are no longer the only professional athletes to silently protest
    during the national anthem.On Sunday night, womens soccer player Megan Rapinoe
    followed the example of?San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick by
    taking a knee during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner before her Seattle
    Reign played the Chicago Red Stars in an NWSL game.I am disgusted with way he
    has been treated and the fans and hatred he has received in all of this, Rapione
    told espnWs Julie Foudy. It is overtly racist. Stay in your place black man.
    Just didnt feel right to me. Need a more substantive conversation around race
    relations, & the way people of color treated.Rapinoe added: We are not
    saying we are not one the greatest countries in world. Just need to accept that
    [it is] not perfect, things are broken. And quite honestly being gay, I have
    stood with my hand over my heart during the national anthem and felt like I
    havent had my liberties protected, so I can absolutely sympathize with that
    feeling.Rapinoe said she will continue to kneel in every match going forward.The
    very least that I can do is continue the conversation with him by kneeling for
    the anthem, she said.?Rapinoe, a World Cup and gold-medal winner with the U.S.
    womens national team, becomes the first nonblack professional player to join in
    protesting during the national anthem since Kaepernick gained notoriety for
    sitting out the anthem in 49ers preseason games.After sitting during the playing
    of the anthem during preseason games, Kaepernick elected to kneel during the
    anthem for the teams final preseason game on Thursday and was joined by teammate
    Eric Reid.In a separate game, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane also
    elected to sit down during the playing of the national anthem.Though he has
    received backlash for his protest, Kaepernick has said its not his intention to
    denigrate police, military or the country, but rather serves as his way of
    bringing attention to what he sees are failings in the United States treatment
    of racial minorities. NCAA Jerseys

    . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues
    for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. TORONTO
    -- Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred supports changing the rule that expands
    active rosters from 25 to 40 each Sept. 1.Managers have expressed concern that
    the rule changes late in the season, allowing multiple pitching changes for
    right-lefty matchups. The issue is part of negotiations for a labor contract to
    replace the deal that expires Dec. 2.Controversy has arisen because of changes
    that have taken place in the game and the way the game is played, particularly
    the use of so many relievers, Manfred said Tuesday before the AL wild-card game.
    I do believe in a reform of those rules, again protecting the benefits that are
    available to players, Im not looking to take away service time or anything like
    that, but I do think it would make sense to get to a situation where we played
    out September games closer to the rules that we play with the rest of the year.I
    dont think 18 pitchers in a game is a good thing, Manfred added.Manfred hopes a
    new labor contract is in place before the start of the offseason business cycle.
    Teams have until the fifth day after the World Series to make qualifying offers
    to their former players who became free agents, and free agents can negotiate
    terms with all teams starting the following day.On other topics:ExpansionWhile
    again saying stadium issues in Oakland and Tampa Bay have to be solved before
    expansion beyond 30 teams would be considered, Manfred acknowledged in terms of
    scheduling, 32 teams is a nice number for us, Manfred said.FernandezAsked about
    the idea of naming an award in honor of late Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez,
    Manfred said the shock of the situation has occupied baseball so far.I
    understand theres some strrong feelings on this topic, he said.dddddddddddd Its
    not the right time of year to be thinking about additional awards. But its an
    issue well talk about during the offseason. Obviously, we recognize the
    significance of Jose in terms of his importance to the Marlins franchise, and
    the fact that he was symbolic of the next generation of players.Home RunsManfred
    said testing has not revealed any difference in the ball that contributed to an
    increase in home runs.We are absolutely convinced this issue is not driven by a
    difference in the baseball, he said. My own view is the spike is related to the
    way the game is being played now, the way we are training hitters from a very
    young age. We have not been able to find any external cause that explains the
    spike in home runs.CubaBecause of the World Baseball Classic, no major league
    team is likely to play at exhibition game in Cuba during spring training.Wild
    cardManfred supports the one-and-done wild-card playoffs, now in their fifth
    year.We just had a final day of the season where you had all sorts of meaningful
    baseball games, and most of those meaningful games were related to the fact that
    we had a second wild card, he said. In terms of the games themselves, I
    understand that baseball doesnt usually have one-game knockouts, but I do
    believe these two games get our playoff season off to a really exciting start.
    Ive gone to the wild card games, each of them, the last two seasons. The
    atmospheres in the ballparks are phenomenal, and I think it gives a great jump
    start to our playoff season. ' ' '
