I was going to tell him early on that he needed to put his full name out, but that ship has sailed.

I want to comment on this topic. When I first saw the Nike ad on television, I wasn't surprised at all. African American athletes have made Nike's founder (Phil Knight) billions and billions of dollars. Now if these guys are having any problems, then he is gonna' have to get his a** out there and support them.

uh, His Career.

Curt Flood also sacrificed his career

As someone who grew up and lived in St. Louis for a long time, and went to Series games in 64, 67 and 68, I was very sad when the Cardinals traded Flood to the Phils in 1969 ( even though having Richie Allen on the team was intriguing). His post baseball life had some low points, and he did pass up decent money from the Phils. An example of losing the battle so others could win the war. I have fond memories of him patrolling center field in the 60s.

No comment on Mr Kaepernick.

My only contribution to this thread is that Richie Allen should be in the Hall of Fame.

Maybe, but there were times when even he thought he was a Dick.
