San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus slams San Diego Padres Over National Anthem Incident – NBC Sports
The Gay Men’s Chorus characterizes the incident as one which raises “serious questions about homophobia” and followed “several days of troubling comments and behavior within the San Diego Padres organization” leading up to the game.

The NFLPA plans to file a petition this afternoon to rehear Brady’s case “en banc” — which, in legal terms, means in front of the entire court — in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. It’s a risky approach, as typically the court defers to the findings of its three-judge panel, which previously had reinstated his four-game suspension by a 2-1 vote, as a matter of respect.

How Jon Lester’s move to Cubs also helped Giants – USA Today
