Understanding the Split in the NFL Players Movement

This week, we try and understand the splits in the players coalition that has been negotiating with the NFL over the anti-racist protests taking place during the national anthem. We speak with Tamishia Moats, wife of former NFL player Ryan Moats, whose experiences with police violence became national news in 2009.And what a week it was, we have THREE Just Stand Up award winners including an NFL player and a Winter Olympics living legend. As always, we dole out our Just Sit Down nominee who needs to take all the seats and we end on a high note, your Kaepernick Watch.Tamishia Moats, Director of Development at Texas LegendsZirin, Two Different Paths, Two Different Goals: Understanding the Rift in the NFL's 'Player's Coalition'— | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del the Funky Homosapien | Shakey Dog - Ghostface Killah | This Way - Dilated Peoples Feat.
