Where sports and politics collide, hosted by Nation magazine Sports Editor Dave Zirin


"U BUM!" Sports, Trump, & Resistance

We discuss the explosive weekend of anthem protests with former San Francisco 49er Chris Borland, who famously walked away from the league after his stellar rookie season. We also go through everything that happened in the last week, a period that could be called a maelstrom of sports, politics and resistance. Finally, we ask the question: Is the original message of why players are taking a knee getting lost in the shuffle?Chris BorlandTwitter:, The Fragile Toxic Masculinity of Donald Trump, For The NFL, It Was Choose Your Side Sunday, Taking a Knee Is Not About Abstract Unity but Racial Justice— | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del The Funky Homosapien | Beautiful - Snoop Dogg Feat.
