WEST POINT, N.Y. -- The U.S. Military Academy removed a video clip of the football teams postgame locker-room celebration after its upset win over Temple and is investigating whether a team prayer violated the religious freedom of the players.West Point spokesman Francis J. DeMaro Jr. said Thursday that a third party made allegations the video violated the First Amendment rights of some of the cadets. DeMaro said the video, which was posted on social media, was removed pending the inquiry, which was first reported by Army Times.Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said head coach Jeff Monken crossed the line after the game last Friday night in Philadelphia when he asked a staff assistant to conduct a prayer that ended with Jesus.In this case, Coach Monken chose the wrong time, the wrong place and the wrong manner, Weinstein said Thursday. He cant tell anybody, put your hand on someone and lets pray. You cant do it, particularly when youre the head coach (of a public school).Weinstein said the video received 232,000 views and 2,000 Facebook shares. He said he started getting inundated with phone calls, texts and emails, including 44 from West Point graduates, 40 members of the academy faculty and staff, and six football players, prompting a call to West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen.Weinstein, who said the video was replaced by an edited version, said he was expecting Monken to offer an apology later Thursday.We assume that theres going to be an apology from the coach to the team, Weinstein said. We are assuming theres an admission there was a misstep.Weinstein said Army athletic director Boo Corrigan was putting procedures in place with all coaches at the academy that will prevent a similar situation from happening. Because of his relationship with Caslen, Weinstein said he does not plan to file a third-party inspector generals complaint on the issue.The MRFF, which claims 47,300 clients, questioned a practice by the Air Force Academy football team late last year after players began kneeling in prayer prior to games. The academy found it was within regulations.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said he has been so focused on the teams upcoming game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he hasnt had time to admire the scenery around the teams waterfront hotel.I looked outside this morning and realized there was actually water close by, Del Rio said. It only took me three days to realize that.Del Rio said that outside of the location there hasnt been much change in the preparation for the Raiders (5-2) this week. The team is practicing on the campus of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.Were just going about our business, Del Rio said. This happens to be a beautiful city but the works the same. Put the last game behind you and get ready for the next. Understand what they like, what theyre good at, their strengths; things like that. I think its very normal in terms of preparation and how were going about our business.Wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he was very impressed with the facilities at IMG and when he was asked to compare it to the Raiders facility in Alameda, California, he said that its coming along, but IMG is IMG.Ive never seen nothing like that, Crabtree added. Its pretty nice. I just dont know when those guys go to school. It seems like its sports year-round.Quarterback Derek Carr said he has taken a little more time than his coach to appreciate the sunny weatherr and palm trees but otherwise hes been focusing on the Bucs secondary, most notably cornerbacks Brent Grimes and Vernon Hargreaves III.ddddddddddddCarr said that Grimes natural athleticism makes him a tough challenge.Grimes is pound-for-pound one of the best athletes in this league and its not even close, Carr said. He can jump out of the gym. He can stop on a dime. It makes it real tough to play against him. I remember playing against him when he was at Miami.Carr said he is also impressed with Hargreaves and said its easy to see why the Buccaneers selected him with the No. 10 pick in the 2016 NFL draft.You see why hes a first-round pick, you see why he went to Florida and why he was a high school All-American, Carr said. You can see all of those things. Hes a really good player.Another player familiar with Hargreaves is wide receiver Amari Cooper. The two matched up against each other on Sept. 20, 2014, when the Alabama Crimson Tide played the Florida Gators. Cooper had 10 catches for 201 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Crimson Tide to 42-21 win.I remember him from college, Cooper said. So it will be cool to play him again.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Chiefs Jerseys China Cheap Nike Chargers Jerseys Cheap Nike Raiders Jerseys Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys China Cheap Nike Giants Jerseys Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys For Sale Wholesale Redskins Jerseys China Cheap Nike Lions Jerseys Packers Jerseys China Cheap Vikings Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Panthers Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Saints Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike Buccaneers Jerseys Cardinals Jerseys China Cheap Rams Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Nike 49ers Jerseys Seahawks Jerseys China Bears Jerseys China Cheap Nike Bills Jerseys Ravens Jerseys China Wholesale Falcons Jerseys China ' ' '
