rantnrave:// Is Colin Kaepernick the most important player in the NFL? His protest continues to influence the league. NFL teams were trying to sniff out potential protesters during interviews at the draft combine. Executives remain angry at Kaepernick.

Player empowerment has led to a decentralization of authority. Remember, in the NFL, personality is not a feature, it's a bug. Kaepernick exposed that like never before, creating a tempest the league could not control. Teams are trying to gain back their power. I doubt players will want to give it away. … Women are strong as hell. … The business elite shared some of their amateur sports highs and lows. … NHL commissioner Gary Bettman vs. the city of Glendale. … Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim vs. the city of Greensboro. … The NFL's newest newsbreaker: Steve Smith, the retired wide receiver. … I'll admit it. I shouldn't have turned off the Barcelona-PSG game in the 71st minute. Wow. … Dan Barbarisi went from Wall Street Journal reporter to professional daily fantasy player to author.

He was 70.

"Sneaker Broker" (2017)

Yeezys sell out nearly instantly due to backdooring, bots and resellers. Sneaker resellers are somewhat of a pariah of the culture; their occupation is taboo and they largely fly under the radar. Yuanrun Zheng, better known in his circles as "23Penny" or "Z," is the Sneaker Broker.
