The sports world is following the Lions’ lead. Matt Patricia is encouraged, and ready for more.

ALLEN PARK — The Detroit Lions canceled practice on Tuesday in protest of the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin. That was unprecedented. Nobody had ever canceled anything in protest of police brutality, let alone an entire practice in the middle of the shortest offseason in NFL history.

This is the same league that blackballed Colin Kaepernick after his protest against police brutality in 2016. Four years later, you had an NFL general manager and NFL head coach standing outside team headquarters with all their players announcing practicing had been canceled.

It was unprecedented.

Now, the sports world is following their lead.

The Milwaukee Bucks, headquartered just 30 miles from the Blake shooting in Kenosha, announced on Wednesday night they would not play their playoff game against the Orlando Bucks. A few minutes later, Orlando showed solidarity by announcing it would not accept a win via forfeit.

A few minutes after

Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins’ dad calls out ‘platform’ of pro sports

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins‘ father, a Florida pastor, preached a message critical of the “platform that’s taking place” in professional sports in a sermon Sunday that is making the rounds on the internet.

In the sermon titled “Pt. 3 — Abide,” the Rev. Don Cousins, a pastor at Discovery Church in Orlando, ended his hour-long message by denouncing the secularization of Ivy League universities, history textbooks and the agenda of “most of the media, the arts and Hollywood.”

“If you’re at all tuned in to pro sports these days, and what’s unfolding there, you know the platform that’s taking place,” Mr. Cousins said. He did not describe the platform but noted, “Religion is being silenced as God is being removed from our culture.”

Liberal social media accounts pushed the remarks, which can be seen in a video on Discovery Church’s website, in light of comments his famous son made

Instead, the players are taking what they’re calling a “day of reflection” and issuing a call to action to the rest of the world. It’s the second day in a row the league hasn’t played games as a response to the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Instead of sitting idle, though, the players used the time that they had to broadcast their message loud and clear to the masses.

When the league announced the cancellation of their games, the players all stood together in unity wearing shirts that said “Arrest the cops that killed Breonna Taylor.”

It was a truly incredible and extraordinary moment.

Active Brands Reexamining Endorsement Deals in Intermittent Sports World

Elwanda Tulloch

After months of a world without professional sports, the leagues, elite athletes and their sponsors hope that pandemic-weary consumers will tune in now that games are finally restarting. But where endorsement deals will go from here is another story altogether.

Some have greeted the delayed start of the National Basketball Association’s season and current playoff rounds with a shrug. The season may be short-lived anyway though, as it’s been reported several NBA players are discussing a boycott following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisc., on Sunday. On Wednesday, Milwaukee Bucks players didn’t take to the floor for their game against the Orlando Magic, and following that, the NBA postponed the night’s two other playoff games. (Major League Baseball’s Milwaukee Brewers as well as four WNBA teams later joined the NBA teams’ stance and called off their Wednesday games.)

Others are wary of how the recent spikes in … Read More

Annual Coweta vs. Wagoner football battle set to go on Sept. 4 | Sports

Elwanda Tulloch

Expect the unexpected.

That’s how the annual Coweta vs. Wagoner football games have seemed to go in the last few years.

As one coach recently put it, “We hope to have more big, crazy plays than they do.”

It’s that kind of game and atmosphere. And, when you add the cloud of COVID-19 to the mix, just playing the game will be an accomplishment of preparation and social distancing when possible during workouts.

What are Coweta’s strengths? 

“Hopefully, we can stay away from the coronavirus,” Coweta coach Tim Harper said. “They’ve practiced and played

Walker: For East Bank All-Stars, Little League World Series title still feels like yesterday | Sports

Elwanda Tulloch

The calendar says it’s been a year.

The memories say otherwise.

“It feels like it was just yesterday,” said Reece Roussel. “I think about it almost every day, mainly at night. I still think how did we do that? No way.”

But, yes, they did it.

It’s been 366 days since then 12-year-old shortstop Stan Wiltz caught that line drive August 25, snatching the ball and a bit of history all at the same time.

Wiltz’s catch was the final out, putting the exclamation point on the magical run of the east bank team from River Ridge, which became the first team from Louisiana to win the Little League World Series with the 8-0 victory over Curacao.

“I still think about the process and all the practices we went through to get to that point,” Wiltz said. “It’s hard to believe that we ever did something like that. It’s so
