Rizzo blooped a tiebreaking single into left field with two outs in the eighth and the Cubs overcame Max Scherzer’s brilliant performance to beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 on Monday for a 2-1 lead in their NL Division Series.
Paul Secunda, director, labor and employment law program, Marquette University: “I’ve heard a lot of fans talk about Constitutional rights. There are no First Amendment rights involved here because it’s in the private, not public, sector. But I do believe that this is illegal. Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act allows employees to engage in activities to improve workplace conditions. By telling players they can’t stand for the anthem, Jerry Jones is effectively chilling such expression, which is a violation of the act.”
His girlfriend, Deja Hiott, tweeted and then deleted a declaration of Bryant’s disappointment: “You guys should have seen it coming. Taking him off the field, not giving the ball or the chance to reach his full potential.”
It is likely Bryant and his people saw that the Steelers responded to Antonio Brown’s abuse of a cooler during the Oct. 1 Baltimore game by calling for a long pass down the right sideline to AB on the first play of their next game — then decided he might get similar treatment. Of course, if Bryant had caught the same pass, directed his way on the first play of the game at Chicago, none of this falderol might have been necessary.
That pass glanced off his fingertips.
He would do well to drop fewer balls and less news.
