RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks are planning a pregame demonstration before Sundays Week 1 matchup against the Miami Dolphins.When asked about the teams plans, Seahawks receiver?Doug Baldwin?said repeatedly, Youll see on Sunday.Nate Boyer, a former Green Beret who spent last summer with the Seahawks, has been in contact with the team about its plans.During a Q&A with Fox Sports Radio, Boyer offered more details about the teams thinking.It has to be a team-first approach in order to get anything done, Boyer said. Whether it is?[Colin] Kaepernicks mission-changing policy or changing things on the field, you have to be unified. Showing a common goal between different walks of life is how you influence change.I spoke with the players, and they realize that 9/11 is a very important day in our nations history. The Seahawks, and probably every team, will be honoring those who serve in camouflage and also those in blue who served on such a difficult day. Shortly after 9/11, our country seemed more unified than I had ever experienced and was the most unified it has been since I have been alive. Since that date, we have grown farther apart in our unity. Standing together this Sunday is key to making progress. What the team will do is a powerful sign of unification.In fact, that is how the Seahawks have been so successful on the field as well -- I saw it firsthand. They place so much emphasis on competition within the team and making each other better. That is crucial to the success in any mission. Whether it is a firefight, on a football field or changing society.Boyer also met with Kaepernick earlier this month to discuss his protest and was instrumental in persuading the San Francisco 49ers quarterback to kneel -- instead of sitting -- during the national anthem. Boyer stood on the sideline while Kaepernick and teammate Eric Reid knelt during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner before the 49ers final preseason game against the San Diego Chargers on Sept. 1.Thursday night, before the leagues opener between Carolina?and Denver, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall knelt during the national anthem.On Wednesday, Baldwin and defensive end Cliff Avril said they supported Kaepernick and were thinking about staging some kind of protest.My grandfather being in the military, it hit home for me as well, Baldwin said. Its the veterans. Thats more heartening to me than anything. Its the veterans that have reached out and said that thats what they fought for. Thats what they sacrificed their lives for was to give people back home under the flag, under the country, the opportunity to stand up or sit for what they believe in. So that was very heartening for me to hear that and that response from the veterans.Added Avril: I truly respect what Kaep is doing. I think some people are taking it out of context because theyre not experiencing the same thing other people are experiencing. They cant really see it. But as a person that does see it and does see whats really going on out here, I definitely could see me doing something about it as well.Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane sat on the bench during the national anthem of the teams final preseason game as a show of support for Kaepernick.Linebacker Bobby Wagner hinted Wednesday that the players were considering doing something as a team.Anything that we want to do, its not going to be individual, Wagner said. Its going to be a team thing because thats what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals. China NFL Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Fired Baylor coach Art Briles is fighting back, nearly two months after he was let go in the fallout over how the school investigated rape allegations.His latest move came Wednesday when Briles asked a federal judge to remove him from a lawsuit that accuses him and other school officials of ignoring a womans claims she was raped by former player Tevin Elliot, who was later convicted and sent to prison.Former Baylor student Jasmin Hernandez sued in March, naming Briles, former athletic director Ian McCaw and the Baylor Board of Regents as co-defendants. She alleges they violated federal Title IX rules against gender discrimination in programs that receive federal aid. The Associated Press generally doesnt identify sexual assault victims, but Hernandez has spoken publicly to draw attention to the case.Briles lawyers argue he cant be sued as an individual in a Title IX lawsuit. They also say claims that Briles ignored warnings of a sexual predator on his team were based on hearsay, and that any action against him would fall outside of a two-year statute of limitations. Hernandez was attacked in 2012 and didnt file her lawsuit until 2016.Briles motion argues that the Title IX claims against McCaw and the regents should also be dismissed and that he cant be held liable for the attack on Hernandez under state law.It is well established in Texas that as a general rule, a person has no legal duty to protect anoother from the criminal acts of another, Briles motion argues.ddddddddddddEven the limited liability standards Texas does allow dont apply to Briles in this case, the motion said.Coach Briles was not the employer of Tevin Elliot or (Hernandez), two adult students of Baylor University, who met off-campus at a private apartment complex during a party that was not organized or sponsored by Coach Briles or Baylor University, Briles motion said.Briles lawyers filed a separate motion asking the court to consider removing Hernandez attorney Alex Zalkin from the case or at least order him to not discuss it publicly. Briles alleges Zalkin falsely told ESPN on June 20 that the coach broke a promise to attend a June 17 settlement meeting to apologize to Hernandez but didnt show. Briles said he never spoke with Hernandez or her lawyers.Zalkins statement to ESPN was for the sole purposes of defaming the character, credibility, and reputation of Coach Briles and deprive him of a fair trial in a Court of law, Briles motion said, accusing Zalkin of waging a media war against the coach.Briles motion against Zalkin also emphatically renewed his insistence that he does not want to settle with Hernandez because he did not do anything wrong.Zalkin said he was aware of Briles motions but declined immediate comment.
