Sports Speak Up! Thumbs up for Jay-Z, down for FedEx golf

THE FEDEX CUP finals wants to reward professional golf’s season-long points leader but starting him at 10 under par before hitting a shot is absurd. The old way, though more complicated, made for better TV and gave the rest of the field a fighting chance to win a tournament. Regardless, don’t feel sorry for these non-interactive robots. The winner this week receives $15 million and last place is worth $395,000.

SERIOUSLY, KOAT? You preempt the Little League World Series to show a meaningless exhibition football game? That is really stupid.

JAY-Z GOT A BAD RAP ( No Pun Intended.) He still stands with Kaepernick. He is a savvy guy, he can do more good from the inside than outside “throwing rocks.” Some players jumped all over Jay-Z. They forget they have the power to bring the NFL to it’s knees. No players, no NFL. Apparently “Kap” is the only one that remembers his history. Muhammad Ali, Curt Flood, John Carlos, Tommie Smith, Arthur Ashe, and Billie Jean King, to name a few, fought for their rights.
