Infamous Cleveland gazebo will be moved

12:00 PMGot another podcast done. This time, Domonique Foxworth joined the squad. We talked about fall television, the Basketball Hall of Fame and national anthem protests. Give it a listen here. Also, I was on SportsCenter on Tuesday night. Check it out.

It’s been nearly two years since Tamir Rice was killed by police in Cleveland. As one of the first cases that got the entire country talking because of his age, where it happened is now a famous place. When a 12-year-old dies in a park from law enforcement gunfire and it’s on videotape, people aren’t going to forget that location. Now, the gazebo that you see in that iconic video is headed to a museum. Of course, since the incident, it’s become a memorial of sorts. ABC News reports.

The health of the two leading presidential candidates is important. If someone is potentially not going to be able to do the job, it certainly affects their electability. Both sides have been rather awkward about this. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s episode with pneumonia has created a bit of a nightmare for her campaign and Republican nominee Donald Trump keeps using really bizarre words like “astonishing” to describe his own medical situation. He is 70 years old and she is 68. FiveThirtyEight’s Clare Malone and Christie Aschwanden wonder: Can a candidate be too old to run for president?

Young Thug is a rather polarizing figure. The Atlanta rapper has been wearing what we typically consider to be women’s clothing for some time now, which has incensed the typically hyperidiotic world of old-school hip-hop heads. People seem to think that masculinity is only defined by bravado and anti-gay prejudice, so when he showed up on the cover of his new album in a dress, a lot of people weren’t sure how to handle it. VICE‘s Jon Shadel tries to answer the question: Why do people think men who wear women’s clothing are gay?

Dabo Swinney needs to get out of the paint. The Clemson football coach seems to think that people who think this country can improve need to leave because it’s not as bad as it once was. He actually said this, and it’s wild. And he did it while invoking the name of Martin Luther King Jr., which is always ill-advised. (Reminder: They killed him, too.) Meanwhile, over on the West Coast, Washington State football coach Mike Leach seems to believe that the police are unfairly targeting his players. ESPN’s Kevin Gemmell reports.

One such place where that’s fun to do is Los Angeles, where we now have very sad news. Amoeba Music, the legendary store, appears to be headed for demise in a couple of years, max.

Locker Room Lawyer

Locker Room Lawyer, Episode 7: National anthem protests

Which is the better protest: kneeling or raising a fist?

1:24 PMIn this week’s edition of Locker Room Lawyer, Clinton Yates and Domonique Foxworth take the case of national anthem protests by players across the NFL to The Undefeated courtroom.

During Week 1 of the NFL regular season, 18 players followed the lead of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick by protesting the national anthem before games due to injustices black people face in this country. Some, like Kaepernick, knelt while The Star-Spangled Banner was played. Others raised a fist in the air and bowed their heads, a nod to the “Black Power salute” popularized by sprinters John Carlos and Tommie Smith at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.

But which one is the better protest?

Domonique, the Locker Room Lawyer, takes the side of the players who rose their fists. Clinton sides with the players who knelt.

Check out the video, and if you have any professional athlete in mind (past or present) who needs the Locker Room Lawyer’s representation, feel free to email us at allday@theundefeated.com with episode ideas. Also, check out our weekly All Day Podcast.
