>>Packers Players Stay In Locker Room During National Anthem, Show Unity

(Minneapolis, MN)  —  Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy says the team’s players respect the national anthem and the flag, but also “the right to express ourselves.”  The players decided to remain in the locker room during the national anthem as a show of unity for social justice and racial equality.  Murphy says he and the team call on leaders to engage in meaningful dialogue that “results in change.”  During the season-opening game at U-S Bank Stadium, the players work a number-87 decal on their helmets to honor former Packer and Hall of Fame defensive end Willie Davis.  The number will remain on the players’ helmets all season.

>>Big Ten Leaders Could Vote On Football Season Soon

(Chicago, IL)  —  Big Ten Conference presidents and chancellors could vote on the resumption of the football season as soon as today (Monday) – and at least sometime in the next week. During a Sunday video-conference, they viewed several plans to get conference teams back in action.  A possible starting date of October 17th would allow teams to complete an eight-game regular season before the College Football Playoff selections are made.  At least six of the 11 campus leaders who voted to postpone the season would have to change their minds if a vote is taken this week.  The availability of at least four rapid-response testing options would open the door to daily testing and make a resumption of the season more likely.

>>Antetokounmpo Sending Mixed Messages

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Despite his firm promises about staying in Milwaukee, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was sending mixed messages over the weekend.  He met with team owner Marc Lasry Saturday to reportedly talk about the team’s future. Yahoo Sports is reporting that he unfollowed the team and his teammates on Twitter and Instagram earlier in the day.  Antetokounmpo firmly denied he planned to force a trade shortly after Milwaukee lost to the Miami Heat, ending its postseason hopes.  He told reporters, “That’s not happening,” in response to questions about forcing a trade.  The Bucks are expected to offer him a five-year super-max N-B-A contract worth around 221 million dollars this offseason.
