Oppressed black football player millionaires to protest Monday night
Who’s going to watch the Philadelphia Eagles game Monday night? Not ol’ Steve. I don’t watch television anyway, haven’t for about 13 years. (Yes, I have a couple of them … I use one to watch Netflix movies, the other Rina watches in the kitchen … Unsolved mysteries and the like)

Eagles planning anthem demonstration on Monday night
The first Sunday of the regular season coincided with the 15th anniversary of 9/11. And while there were still some demonstrations from NFL players during the national anthem, at least one team refrained on that day — but won’t in Week Two.
“Everybody wants to be a part of it and I feel like it’s no different on our team,” Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins told Glen Macnow of WIP in Philadelphia on Friday, via CSNPhilly.com. “We got guys, especially myself, who feel very strongly about the topic. Last week, we talked about doing some stuff, but we wanted to make sure we didn’t do anything to take away from the folks, the families, that suffered from 9-11. We didn’t want to mess with that day, so we left last week alone. But moving forward, I’m sure there will be guys that will probably join in.”
