A good coach like Pop has to be on the team and up front about it.

Well the issues seems to be squashed because the NBA has told teams they will stand. I guess they know who the audience is unlike the NFL and Pop.

Guys are definitely going to kneel, we will see what the NBA does. Their fan base is the most progressive in sports so I doubt there is any talk of boycotts or anything like that.

I can Google things. The NBA’s fans are generally in the major metros of the country, i.e. younger, more diverse, more progressive.

NBA is just reminding the players of an existing rule that was in the official league rule book long before Colin started this kneeling trend.

Rule is:
Quote:
Players, coaches, and trainers are to stand and line up in a dignified posture along the sidelines or on the foul line during the playing of the National Anthem.
Unlike NASCAR team owners, I doubt there is a lot of Trump support among the ranks of NBA owners so it will be interesting to see what happens to the NBA players that ignore the stern reminder and kneel anyways.

Professional Boxing is the most urban and progressive sport by far.

I should have clarified, the NBA is the most urban and progressive among the 4 major leagues.

NEISD has put out a list of names suggested for renaming Lee High School.

Snowflake High School got the most votes.

It probably won't be named after a person this time.
