The Sidelines Continue to be a Place of Protest

Looks like there was some brotherhood going on during the National Anthem yesterday. Chris Long put his arm around Malcolm Jenkins while he was raising his fists.  “I just told Malcolm, ‘I’m here for you,’” Long said afterward. “I think it’s a good time for people that look like me to be here for people that are fighting for equality.” Said Jenkins: “This is a moment in time where he feels the need to kind of take that step and lead, and I appreciate that.” I get what these guys are doing, but I really wish football and politics could be separate. We get enough reminders of this crazy world on all things non sport.-TO
