    导出博客文章Northwestern said it will vigorously fight a federal antitrust lawsuit initiated
    by a former player who wants to abolish the NCAAs rule requiring transfers to
    sit for a year.Johnnie Vassars class-action lawsuit, filed Monday, claims that
    school officials forced him to surrender his scholarship via misleading and
    intimidating tactics. Once he left the program, he was subjected to the NCAAs
    destructive rules that require transfers to sit for a year before theyre
    eligible at their next schools, the lawsuit claims.Vassar, who is not playing
    for any basketball team this season, and his attorneys seek immediate
    eligibility for all transfers.We do not believe this claim has any legal merit,
    Al Cubbage, Northwesterns vice president for university relations, said in a
    statement from the school. We will defend the University vigorously.Vassars
    class-action lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
    of Illinois, Eastern Division, on Monday, alleges that Northwestern staffers
    pushed the Chicago native out of the program after the 2014-15 season because
    they wanted to use his scholarship for another player.The following year --
    Vassar remained in school -- his athletic scholarship was converted into an
    academic scholarship so it would not count toward the NCAAs limit of 13 athletic
    scholarships per team, according to the lawsuit. Prior to that conversion, his
    lawyers claim, the school and the NCAA disrupted his career because other
    schools refused to offer him a scholarship because hed have to miss a year of
    competition if he transferred.We see this destructive double-standard again and
    again -- non-student-athletes are free to transfer and are eligible for a new
    scholarship without waiting a year, Steve Berman, the lawyer representing the
    class of athletes involved in this lawsuit, said in a statement. Coaches often
    transfer to the tune of a hefty pay raise. But meanwhile, student-athletes are
    penalized and forced to sit out a year before they can play elsewhere. The NCAA
    needs to level the playing field for these thousands of kids who face undue
    punishment under its senseless bylaws.The lawsuit claims that Vassar was told he
    would lose his spot on the team after his freshman season in 2014-15. Team
    officials, per the lawsuit, then proceeded to deceive Vassar and separate him
    from his former teammates by putting him on an internship under which he worked
    as a janitor instead of permitting him to train and play with his teammates when
    they decided they did not want him to remain with the program, thereby
    obstructing his career and future. Vassar also claims he was asked if hed take
    money to leave.On March 30, 2015, Northwestern coach Chris Collins announced
    Vassars decision to transfer.Johnnie let us know that he has chosen to pursue
    another university to continue his career, Collins said in a statement then. We
    support his decision and enjoyed having him as a member of the program this
    season. He is a talented player with a bright future, and we wish him nothing
    but the best in everything he does going forward.Vassar then reportedly tweeted
    that he desired a more integral role with a new program after averaging 3.9
    minutes per game his freshman season. He thanked Collins for the opportunity.In
    the class-action lawsuit filed Monday, however, Vassar claims that he was
    pressured to a sign a form that said he had volunteered to leave. The suit
    claims that the NCAAs unfair transfer rules allow coaches to forcefully remove
    players whenever they want to create an opening for another talent.After his
    teams victory over Eastern Washington on Monday, Collins told reporters, Well
    let those things be handled behind closed doors when asked about the lawsuit.

    . PAUL, Minn. SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The Santa
    Clara police chief has vowed to continue providing a safe environment at San
    Francisco home games after the union representing his officers threatened to
    boycott policing the stadium if the 49ers dont discipline Colin Kaepernick for
    criticizing police and refusing to stand during the national anthem.Chief
    Michael Sellers said in a statement Saturday that he will urge union leadership
    to put citizens safety first.Kaepernicks blanket statements disparaging the law
    enforcement profession are hurtful and do not help bring the country together,
    Sellers said. As distasteful as his actions are, these actions are protected by
    the Constitution. Police officers are here to protect the rights of every
    person, even if we disagree with their position.In a letter sent to the 49ers,
    the police union complained that Kaepernicks inappropriate behavior has
    threatened our harmonious working relationship.The board of directors of the
    Santa Clara Police Officers Association has a duty to protect its members and
    work to make all of their working environments free of harassing behavior, the
    letter reads.It was the latest in the flurry of heated responses -- both
    negative and positive -- that Kaepernick has gotten since his silennt protest
    became the talk of the NFL and much of the nation last week.ddddddddddddThe
    quarterback wouldnt stand for the anthem at the teams preseason games, most
    recently kneeling alongside teammate Eric Reid in San Diego on Thursday night.He
    has cited racial injustice and police brutality among the many reasons for his
    protest and said he plans to continue into the regular season.Kaepernick is
    expected to discuss his actions on Sunday at a San Francisco church known for
    its activism on civil rights causes.We had a long conversation, the Rev. Amos
    Brown of Third Baptist Church told the San Francisco Chronicle. He stated his
    serious opposition to racial oppression and violence in this country, and hes
    willing to stay true to his conviction. Hes interested in taking this to the
    next level.The team reiterated Friday night that it stands behind Kaepernick and
    respects his right not to participate in celebrating the national anthem.About
    70 officers from the Santa Clara Police Department patrol Levis Stadium when the
    49ers play there.The 49ers will open their season at home against the Los
    Angeles Rams on Sept. 12. Cheap
