On Monday night, the Cowboys and Cardinals will put a cap on NFL’s week three, one of the most emotional and politically charged weekends in recent sports history.
With President Trump watching (and tweeting) dozens of NFL players took a knee during pre-game renditions of the National Anthem on Sunday to protest racial inequality.
It turns out, they weren’t the only ones making a statement this weekend. Fantasy football players across the country revolted in their own acts of protest, cutting loose players who followed the movement Colin Kaepernick started last year. Or, in some cases, cutting players who didn’t.
After a weekend that was so serious, this is kind of idiocy we need today.
