    Hello Adam Wells, I recently read your article "How NFL Teams, Players Observed National Anthem on Opening Sunday" posted on September 10th, 2017 and I couldn't help but see the division between NFL players and the Criminal Justice system. I really enjoyed how you showcased everyone on opening night, as there were a lot of mixed results. A lot of teams all stood for the National Anthem. In my opinion, I believe it is best to stand for something that represents America. Some individuals sat out or knelt during the anthem. To be honest, they have the freedom and speech to peacefully protest. But I'm not sure it is the best place to do this at, especially when there is a football game they have to play right after. The Cleveland Brown's message was definitely one that every team needs to adopt. Standing in unison with policemen, military, and first responders is a very powerful image. Sitting out of the National Anthem really discredits veterans who served America and people right now who are in the military. I think you should write about the impact Colin Kaepernick has caused in the NFL. It started in 2016, when he was the first one to sit out the National Anthem. He definitely caused a movement, but in return possibly lost his job because of it. I really think he should be back in the NFL, but teams don't want someone who can distract the team from football. An article that sums up the impact Colin Kaepernick had across the NFL would inform a lot of young adults like me about the controversial situation that has been relevant since last year.

    Hello Adam,

    I read your article on Jim Plunkett... Great article!

    If you have a chance to speak with him again, tell him he should try using Tumeric...

    Its a supplement that helps deal with arthritis pain... I use it religiously (I played football & basketball for years!) and I don't feel any pain because of this!

    Let him know that brand he'll want to use is by Science Based Nutrition... Works like a charm! :o)

    Have a Great Weekend! :o)

    Adam, your math doesn't work for the relocation fees. If the Rams & Chargers are paying 645M over 10 years (64.5M a year) and the Raiders are paying 378M over 10 years (37.8M a year), that means the post is 166.8M a year. Or 5.75M per the 29 teams annually.

    Am I missing something?

    Hello, Adam. I just read your article about Gordon Heywood. Interesting that his agent says he hasn't made a final decision, when he, himself, said yesterday that he was going to Boston. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/gordon-hayward-decision-free-agency-nba/

    Hello Adam. I just made this account and was wondering if you could tell me if there is a way to post articles and mock drafts or what steps I would have to take to do so.

    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
