The Kaepernick scandal, like so many other things in our society, appears to be an example of the media telling us what to care about. My take is that we have a young man with concerns about the way his ethnic peers are treated as a class by the police, the media and open society. Were it not for the cameras trained on him and the editorials supporting and excoriating him, it would amount to a silent protest. Instead, the media rallies to create a story they can milk for its sales value. Like so many other "stories" generated by the need to fill a 24 hour news cycle, it really hasn't much value. Cam Newton being whacked in the head with no penalty calls is more like what we might discuss this morning. I went to bed during the 2nd quarter so I did not see any non-calls. Last season I remember some running backs leading with their head or even lowering it just before contact. In those cases, how can you blame the defender? Were last night's hits clear cut violations? I'd rather hear it from you than from ESPN.
When there was some talk about this last year I remember commenters saying that, unlike the other QBs, he is a running back who challenges tacklers.
apologies.keep the topic back on football
I'm from LA, and after 20 years the Rams are back.I have mixed feelings, I grew up as a Rams fan, my dad had season tickets starting in the 60s, and for the last 5 years or so before they moved, I shared a season ticket with my brother. So I hated Georgia for moving the team to St Louis. I've followed them somewhat since the move, and will watch them Monday night for sure. They look like an average team at best, and with Seattle and Arizona in their conference my expectations are not high.Randy
Maybe you can beat up on the Niners ----- that's something, right?
Lately the talk has been how the Ram's number 1 pick QB, Jared Goff is the 3rd string qb, won't even be active for the Monday night game.Good thing they gave up so much to get him.
