NYPD officers stand up for Kaepernick amid new wave of NFL protests

No Comments

By Suzie Liu

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Members of the New York Police Department rallied in support of Colin Kaepernick on Saturday as the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who ignited controversy last season for sitting out the national anthem during games, remains unsigned heading into the NFL season.

The gathering at Brooklyn Bridge Park featured roughly 80 officers, according to the New York Times. Kaepernick has not been signed by an NFL team this season, despite the belief of many football analysts that his talents would prove useful to teams that lack depth at the quarterback position.

The unusual show of support from police comes as a second wave of protests, modeled after what Kaepernick did last season in the name of “black people and people of color,” is building in the NFL.

Players from the Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans joined protests in the second week of the NFL preseason.

Marshawn Lynch, a running back for the Oakland Raiders and arguably the most high-profile star to join the national anthem protests since Kaepernick participated last season, sidestepped questions about his participation in them during a press conference last week.

“I think that elephant just left the room because a little mouse ran in here,” Lynch said facetiously, responding to a question from a reporter who referred to the protests as “the elephant in the room.”

The show of support for Kaepernick by some NYPD officers featured at least one high-profile guest in Frank Serpico, who arrived at the gathering. The former officer is celebrated for his whistleblowing and anti-corruption efforts, which were the subject of a 1973 film starring Al Pacino.

Kaepernick was critical of the police last season after a series of highly publicized incidents in which black men were shot and killed by officers across the U.S.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said in 2016 during the preseason after his protests first drew the attention of the media. “To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

The quarterback also drew intense criticism from officers after photos emerged of him wearing black athletic socks covered in illustrated pigs wearing police hats during a practice on Aug. 10, 2016.

Kaepernick wrote in response to the controversy that he has family members who were police officers, and that he wore the controversial socks prior to taking a “public stance.”

In addition to Saturday’s gathering of New York police, the NAACP of Atlanta has called for a boycott of the NFL if Kaepernick does not find a team to play for this season.

Yankees' Aaron Judge sets strikeout record

No Comments

By Brittany Martinez

Adam Glanzman/Getty Images(BOSTON) — New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge has struck out in his 36th consecutive game, setting the record for the longest strikeout streak in a single season by any player.

Boston Red Sox’ Chris Sale struck out Judge in the top of the fifth inning Saturday.

The record for consecutive games with a strikeout by a postion player was set on Thursday by Judge.

Montreal Expos pitcher Bill Stoneman held the previous record by any player in 1971.

Judge is now 0-for-9 with seven strikeouts against Sale in his career — his most at-bats against any pitcher without a hit.

Dodgers option Joc Pederson to make room for Curtis Granderson

No Comments

By Brittany Martinez

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(DETROIT) — The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Curtis Granderson from the New York Mets in a late night trade.

The Dodgers made room for Granderson by optioning former All Star centerfielder Joc Pederson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Granderson found out about the trade on Friday night following the Mets loss against the Miami Marlins. By Saturday afternoon, he joined his new team in Detroit in time for the Dodgers game against the Detroit Tigers.

“Last night I’m with the Mets in the blue and orange,” Granderson said. “Now I’m clear across the country wearing the blue and white of the Dodgers. I get a chance to be with an organization I’ve watched a lot and played against a lot. I know a lot of the guys, and I’m happy to go out there and be with them.”

“Curtis Granderson is a huge addition, a real coup for us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Fits in with what we already have. He’s a consummate professional. He’s been on the big stage. For his ability to come in and hit right-handed pitching and play anywhere in the outfield, potentially come off the bench if we need that, it enhances our ballclub.”
