Report: NFL seeking end to Colin Kaepernick collusion case via summary judgment

  Report: NFL seeking end to Colin Kaepernick collusion case via summary judgment The National Football League is attempting to bring Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case to an immediate conclusion, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports. The NFL is asking arbitrator Stephen Burbank to provide a summary judgment in the case as allowed via the Collective Bargaining Agreement for collusion disputes. It will be Burbank’s task to determine whether Kaepernick’s legal team has been sufficiently able to uncover enough evidence to allow the case to move forward. If he doesn’t believe that evidence exists, he can bring the proceedings to an immediate conclusion by ruling in favor of the league.

ESPN journalist Jemele Hill is blunt about one-time Super Bowl quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s dismal career prospects.

“He’s never going to play in the NFL again,” Hill told the Daily News ahead of her upcoming appearance at Ozy Fest in Central Park July 22.

“It’s disappointing, it’s disheartening and if you’re the NFL, you should feel very embarrassed by that.”

That the NFL has seemingly decided to make an example of Kaepernick to dissuade other players from activism strikes Hill, 42, as “startling,” especially considering the league’s spotty track record of disciplining “criminals.”

DeMarcus Cousins says he had no other offers

  DeMarcus Cousins says he had no other offers The one thing everyone wants to know when an NBA free agent lands at an unexpected destination for a bargain price is simple: They want to know how the hell it happened. DeMarcus Cousins, a four-time All-Star who despite a recent Achilles injury was the best center on the market, signed a one-year deal worth $5.3 million with the Warriors last night.

The ESPN journalist recently spoke to the Daily News about Colin Kaepernick and his grim future when After the uproar reached a fever pitch during the 2016 NFL season, the NFL decided to make a “ It wasn’t some crime ( Kaepernick ) did to somebody, it wasn’t hurting another person,” Hill said .

Kaepernick is currently a free agent, having not been signed by any of the 32 NFL teams after facing criticism for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and violence against people of color.

The former San Francisco 49ers starter filed a grievance against the league and its owners last year, accusing them of colluding to not hire him.

“It wasn’t some crime (Kaepernick) did to somebody, it wasn’t hurting another person,” Hill said. “It was using his right as an American citizen to call out some of the ills and atrocities in this country.”

Regardless, she noted that Kaepernick is “already in the history books.”

“He’s got an exhibit in the Smithsonian,” Hill said. “He’s going to have streets and schools named after him.”

Hill believes there will eventually be a “softening” in a few decades, and that people will look back on Kaepernick’s refusal to kneel for the national anthem the same way history remembers Muhammad Ali’s refusal to serve in Vietnam.

“After seeing what happened in Vietnam and how Ali’s career and activism further blossomed, people now say, ‘Oh, he made the right decision. That was great!’” Hill said. “People want to wait until they’re proven right to actually say something is a good idea.”

Hill has rarely held back from speaking her mind, which has propelled her into the national spotlight and elevated her as both a lightning rod for controversy and as a pioneering black, female journalist in an industry dominated by white men.

It’s one of the reasons she’s been invited to speak alongside newsmakers like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Laverne Cox, Chelsea Handler and Martha Stewart at Ozy Fest, a two-day festival July 21-22 featuring panels, talks and live performances in Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield.

Colin Firth and Wife Livia Settle with Her Ex-Lover in Stalking Scandal Case

  Colin Firth and Wife Livia Settle with Her Ex-Lover in Stalking Scandal Case Colin Firth and his wife Livia have settled out of court with Marco Brancaccia after accusing the Italian journalist of stalking Livia following the end of an affair with her. “In the best interests of their families, the parties have agreed a private settlement,” lawyers for both parties said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Therefore the parties have asked the court for a postponement of the preliminary hearing in order to formalize the agreement. From this point on, this agreement precludes any further public statement by any of the parties about this matter.” Brancaccia had a relationship with Livia while she was briefly separated from Firth between 2015 and 2016. Last year, police opened up an investigation a

Hill said she’s still getting used to random people on the internet — and occasionally the White House, which infamously called for her to be fired last year for referring to President Trump as a “white supremacist” — telling her to “stick to sports.”

“But if 45 seconds on Colin Kaepernick is going to ruin your day, then you need to get a little tougher,” Hill said.

Despite the desire that many of Hill’s detractors have to divorce sports from current affairs, “Sports is not a shield from the real world,” Hill argued.

She pointed to gender violence in sports that’s been under-reported, as well as former USA Gymnastics national team doctor Larry Nassar’s sexual assault against members of the team, including minors, as examples of the “real-world problems” that cross over into sports journalism.

“There’s no corner in America we can really go and not be bothered unless you’re watching cartoons all day, but that’s not real life,” Hill said. “People act like this is some kind of new phenomenon where we’re going through a phase of talking about sports and politics, or sports and social issues, when that’s literally been the case with sports always.”

Confronting uncomfortable issues — including the policies of the Trump administration — is “part of the job” not just for journalists, but all citizens.

Hill brought up that a majority of Americans supported internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II, and that the LA Times penned an editorial in favor of the camps 76 years ago.

“It goes to show that we’ve been repeatedly put up to this test and we’ve failed it,” Hill said.

This tendency for history to repeat itself is the main reason Hill winces when she sees social media posts arguing that America “is better than this.”

“As a journalist who’s responsible for putting these things into context, it’s fascinating and compelling to see that mentality over and over again,” Hill said. “Every time we say we’re going to be better, we’re not better.”

NFL: Tennessee Titans' Jurrell Casey says he'll protest during anthem and take fine .
If the NFL thinks its new rule designed to quell player protests will end its national anthem controversy, it may want to think again. With less than three weeks to go until the start of preseason, Tennessee Titans star defensive end Jurrell Casey told CNN Sport on Wednesday in an exclusive interview he will remain on the field and protest during the US national anthem, while accepting any fines levied on him this season. "I'm going to take a fine this year, why not?" said Casey at an NFL promotional event in London. "I'm going to protest during the flag. That's what I'm going to say now.
