Erie County Executive glad for Kim Pegula’s comments about new stadium
In an interview with the Buffalo News this week, Bills co-owner Kim Pegula sounded a doubtful note about the chances of building a new stadium in Buffalo.
The Seahawks’ mandatory minicamp runs June 12-14, and the team could fine Thomas up to $84,435 for skipping all three days.
Seahawks General Manager John Schneider has said he has received assurances from Thomas’ representation that Thomas won’t hold out in absence of a new deal. Thomas currently is scheduled to make $8.5 million in base salary before becoming a free agent in 2019.
Thomas has drawn interest on the trade market but nothing to entice the Seahawks to deal him. The Cowboys, though, remain interested.
If there was a hole that big in Hollywood, then we should take an honest look at our programming and how our entertainment industry treats Middle America. Plenty of lessons are coming out of this chapter of Roseanne Barr’s life. Most of them are obvious: Words matter and there are consequences for hateful behavior.
But people will miss two other very important lessons. The first is we have to stop leaping to the assumption that every person who voted for Donald Trump is a racist and everything they like has tinges of racism — from guns to how the NFL has handled their national anthem controversy.
Baldwin has become one of the NFL’s most outspoken players on the league’s national anthem decision. A host of other players have joined him in opposing the new policy.
Eagles defensive end Chris Long said he believes the NFL acted out of fear of a president turning his base against a corporation as well as fear of a diminished bottom line.
President Trump supports the policy, of course, but he doesn’t like the addendum that allows players to remain in the locker room during the national anthem this season.
I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, the President said on FOX News Channel on Thursday. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem.
