54% of people approve of new National Football League kneeling policy

Ex-49ers safety Eric Reid and quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneel during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams in Santa Clara Calif. NFL owners have approved a new policy aimed at addressing the firestorm

Kaepernick was let go during the 2016 National Football League season after he knelt during the "Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of African-Americans in the country by the hands of the police.

The NFL announced last week that players will be permitted to stay in the locker room during the pregame playing of The Star-Spangled Banner but must stand and show respect if they are on the field while it is played, or their teams will be subject to fines. And he continued over the coming months to lambaste the league, at one point calling for an unspecified change in "tax law" because of all the public tax breaks and incentives many NFL teams receive, because of the anthem protests. He has been unemployed since 2016 despite multiple NFL executives reportedly viewing him as a starter in the league as recently as past year.

Zinedine Zidane resigns as Real Madrid manager
The man who coached Real Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League title has quit after two years in charge. In his two-and-a-half years stint at the Madrid club, Zidane ended up winning nine trophies with the team.

Several NFL team owners, including Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross both acknowledged that Trump's coming out against the protests affected their own positions in sworn testimony related for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's grievance filed against the NFL.

Members of Congress found a partisan divide over the NFL's new policy on players kneeling in protest during the National Anthem.

Kaepernick wasn't employed by an National Football League team last season and has charged that he was blackballed due to his anthem stance. Though he has stopped taking a knee, Reid vowed to continue protesting injustice. But some have noted that Trump's tax statement represented a step toward potential government infringement upon players' First Amendment rights.

China slams U.S. warships in South China Sea as 'a provocation'

Kaepernick's lawyer, Mark Geragos, told the podcast host Amy Dash that the revelations emerged during depositions for Kaepernick's lawsuit against the league owners.
