Former Bull Craig Hodges on Jordan, Kaepernick, and dissent:: "Jordan didn't speak out because he didn't know what to say". He was one of the NBA's finest sharpshooters and a two-time champion alongside Michael Jordan, but was run out of the league for his outspoken views. A quarter of a century on, Craig Hodges is still fighting the good fight.

Friday Night Lights Out: Russell Davis has been called a "dork," a "pussy," a "gay," and a "nanny state liberal" who's "almost as krazy as Hillary" .... the reason Davis has attracted attention and ire is simple: he wants to eliminate public high school football.

Last Chance U: the college that gives young players a final route to the NFL: "The tiny town of Scooba sits in Kemper County in the vast state of Mississippi. Its quiet streets are home to under a thousand permanent residents and there is little excitement to be found. An isolated Subway sandwich shop is the social hub. East Mississippi Community College stands incongruously in Scooba’s streets. The college houses some of the country’s finest student American football players who dream of making the NFL. They find themselves in sleepy Scooba for two reasons: their grades aren’t up to scratch or they need more playing time to prove themselves to larger colleges. For almost all of the players on the Lions’ playing roster, this is their last chance at football redemption." Their story is also a Netflix documentary.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Some Red Sox fans just don't know Boston's racist history

And yes things have gotten better, and yes the vast majority of Red Sox fans are not racists, and yes Boston has grown more diverse over the last few decades. Still, recent census results show that it remains one of the most segregated cities in America. When fans say that the Jones incident doesn't reflect the city they know, it's not that they're being untruthful, it's that what they know might be an entirely different city than what others' know.

Tom Brady's 2017 Superbowl Jersey found .... in Mexico. Also found: his jersey from 2015 Superbowl. The team's owner Robert Kraft likened the theft to "taking a great Chagall or Picasso" in an interview on the Fox Business Network.

Acevedo said the jerseys are in the possession of the NFL and FBI in Boston, and law enforcement was working to authenticate them.

"We are highly confident that these are the jerseys," he said.
