Shaun King nicely captures my thoughts on the NFL's decision. And oh, btw, the overwhelming majority of NFL owners are Republican. Robert Kraft (Patriots) who is a staunch Israel supporter and (conveniently) blind to Israel's human right abuses /apartheid policies has historically been a bit more Democratic leaning than his fellow NFL owners political contributions. Given that the Democratic party has moved left and will continue to so long as you have such an extreme right running the show, my expectation is that Kraft will keep moving towards conservatives. Many of the latest NF owner donation numbers seem to support that (goo.gl/BHWswK).

Aly Raisman already raised concerns to USA gymnastics and they chose to do nothing and they didn't even even apologize to the hundreds of gymnasts who were abused by Larry Nasser while he was "working" for USA gymnastics.

As a gymnastics fan and follower, I can't express the disgust and sadness I feel towards the very young athletes who had to suffer at the hands of this predator. Listening to the testimonies of the young girls, many of them still under 18 years of age, has been very hard.

Never knew any of these details about Thakhti's politics. Thanx for the info.
I always thought he was a Nationalist and either a strong sympathizer or a member of the National Front.
It's not an exaggeration to say Takhti was the coolest world star Iran has ever had. Also not sure if anyone has won as many medals as Takhti. He remains unsurpassed on so many levels. He's was a kid from our old Tehran neighborhood of Khani Abad. His son lives in the US, married to Moniru Ravanipor, the great Iranian novelist.
It's interesting to see the considerable, alarming contrast between Takhti's sportsmanship, fairness and the current "Death" culture dominating our sports. Just recall how many egregious insults Messy had in his FB page, after he scored a goal against Iran. With the kids in street of Tehran carrying signs that read "Death to the referee!"
Takhti would have not been pleased with outrageously insulting reactions of sports fan in today's Iran.

Boycott NFL if the pro Trump team owners don't hire Kaepernick who's one of the best quarterbacks in American football.

All the more reason for Pats fans to root for their home team! It's a winning organization and game recognizes game. Trump likes winners and so do Tom Brady and the gang. These guys are true Patriots!! Go Pats!!

I'm expecting to see lots of player anthem protests from NBA players. I wonder if that'll affect their ratings as well.
