This NFL’er was so ready for a second chance, his plan, worked

TEXAS - If there's a will, there's a way, at least for one former baller who was "Starving For Success". Some six weeks ago, Joe Anderson,  took it upon himself to create a sign that said "Starving for Success" "Will run Routes for Food" and stood outside a stadium where the NFL was practicing.Among the other readings of the sign: "Will Run Routes 4 food," it continued, along with the hashtags #Whateverittakes, #UnderDog, #IBelieve, and #Hungry.  His message and sign went viral after he posted it on Instagram, and Tuesday, Anderson was signed to the New York Jets practice team.

NFL prospect was asked if he was gay during NFL draft

And people are losing their minds.  In what is certainly an illegal question, the NFL is facing controversy today after two teams apparently asked an NFL draft if indeed liked men.

Wealthy or poor, to #TakeaKnee, means to protest injustice

You've probably heard by now that the President of the United States is literally engaging in full-scale war with the NFL.   So much so, that, the Golden State Warriors have announced that they're "pretty okay" with not actually going to The White House.   The apparent feud started after Stephen Curry chimed in on the #TakeaKnee movement.  A movement that Donald Trump is vehemently opposed to, but, can actually do nothing about it. The comment that started it all, at least,  when Trump chimed in himself.  Players across the sports spectrum including those in MLB; the NFL, and more are protesting than ever before. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fi...
