    So after some backlash and feedback from the NFLPA, the NFL has decided to freeze the anthem policy indefinitely. Makes me think the protests against the national anthem are going to be an even bigger deal at the beginning of this year than it ever was last year. As the league as really mishandled this whole thing. It's definitely not over..

    Vive la France!

    That was one heck of a final. I didn't really have any skin in the game and really just wanted to see a great final match and that's exactly what I got.

    Croatia had so many opportunities to make the outcome entirely different, but they just couldn't deliver when they needed to.

    I was a little bummed when England lost, as I thought that would make for the best final. But it was still fun to watch. Croatia deserved to be there over England, and I think England would have been blanked by France honestly.

    In case you missed it...

    Yep. 16 years and running. Djokovic gets his 4th Wimbledon trophy. It's crazy to me how he never looks like he's breaking much a sweat on the court.

    Streak is still alive, with Djokovic beating Nadal to make it to the finals against Anderson. Djokovic is the heavy favorite I have to think.. here's the Nadal/Djokovic highlights as well. Well worth the watch; happened over 2 days:

    Well, Serena had a lot of really good rally points and a few strong aces. But Kerber just played more consistent, with less errors. ESPN gives a really complete highlight reel here:

    Should be good.

    Video also points out that they are tied in Slam finals 1-1, as Kerber beat Serena in the 2016 Australian Open finals. So.. tiebreaker.

    The way that ESPN reports on the story makes me think there maybe something to her claims.

    Police investigate home invasion at house owned by Bills' LeSean McCoy

    Article says that police were in fact contacted, and that lawyers strongly advised her to take that twitter post down. I assume because they feel they have an actual case and don't want social media to muddy the waters publicly.

    Also, it says a few times the intruder asked for specific items of jewelry. And that McCoy had been trying to get the jewelry back for a while. So that's at the very least curious.

    Since the cops and league are involved and investigating this, you are right when you say don't jump to conclusions based solely off of a social media post. Those are far too easily believed and ruin careers, if by no other way than casting doubt forever on a person's character.

    I just don't understand why they act like it's so painful. There are no further penalties for extra pain. Just the penalty for the act itself, right?

    I'm not really sure. Maybe there are degrees of penalties. Like in basketball where there are intentional/technical fouls and just regular fouls, each with different consequences. Anyone here know how soccer rules work?

    Good call so far. Both made to the semis.

    Update:

    Semis are set.

    France v Belgium
    Croatia v England

    Sadly Brazil is out. On the flip side, Russia didn't make it either. So even's out. Wink

    Amazing what athletes will put themselves through. I know we have discussed in a prior Tour de France thread about how devastated these guys' legs and feet are after all is said and done.

    Vid does put the trek into good perspective.
