Over a teleconference call, Kaepernick reportedly praised Castro for investing in Cuba's education system, as opposed to the American investment in the prison system, according to Salguero. Fans said the reaction came because Kaepernick wore a shirt with Fidel Castro's image on it during a postgame interview earlier this season. "Trying to push the narrative that I was supportive of the oppressive things he did is not true (and) taken out of context".
That had the reporter accusing Kaepernick of changing the conversation because it was "uncomfortable" to talk about Castro, who remains a largely reviled figure in Miami's sizable community of Cuban immigrants. Alonzo - the recipient of Tannehill's postgame chest bump - also led Miami with 12 tackles, and sandwiched Colin Kaepernick at the 2-yard line on the final play.
On Saturday, a message sent by Gabriel was read to Redblacks players by Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group partner Jeff Hunt following the final pre-Grey Cup practice, and on Sunday it all came true.

Coach Andy Reid insists Smith's job isn't in jeopardy. If Denver hands Kansas City the ball (like they did in their Week 10 meeting of a year ago, ) then it's a cakewalk.

Kelly liked what he saw from his team in certain aspects of the game, but ultimately two turnovers played a critical role in San Francisco being unable to pull off a road upset.

This time, Lewis Hamilton is not going to lose any sleep on the eve of the Formula One title decider. After competing in his first F1 race at age 20, this race was his 305th GP start, putting him just one behind seven-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher of Germany.

Though, they could go many directions with a top 10 pick. "I've only had one losing year since I've been here", said cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones, who joined the team in 2010. By contrast, the Bengals have struggled to stop the run. The 16-12 win came in ugly fashion, but given how desperately Buffalo needed to make up ground in the standings, its tough for them to quibble with how the game went.

Real top the standings on 27 points, two ahead of second placed Barcelona and six clear of Atletico in fourth.

Arsenal attacker Alex Iwobi has apologised for scoring an own goal in the 2-2 Champions League draw with Paris Saint-Germain.

With the sun setting on the Yas Marina track, Hamilton was on pole for the 12th time this season and got away cleanly, as did Rosberg.

Wisconsin had an ultra-conservative game plan against Purdue, but the Badgers were still able to control the game and win.

Strong also said that he'd like to return next season. You've got one game left. This game is about the seniors. So, what's more important - winning a press conference or winning games? After a loss to Big 12 doormat Kansas on Saturday dropped Strong to 16-20 in three years and 5-6 this season, Strong's fate was clear-cut.
Jonathan Marchessault and Aaron Ekblad scored in the first period for the Panthers. And then the Canes rallied. "Leights" was huge for us all game and especially after we got the lead". The Panthers, fresh off a shootout win over Columbus last night in Sunrise, got through a very brief Canes flurry to start the game and got on the board first in a way that was quite unfamiliar to the Canes' opponents recently: on the power play.
The Rapids took a total of sixteen shots on Sunday but put none of them on target, setting the record for most shots taken without putting one on goal in an MLS game (regular season or playoffs). The U.S. global could've opened the scoring in the sixth minute but sent a header just wide.

In 2013, he was fined 50 percent of the match fee during the second Test against Pakistan for rubbing the ball with his trouser zipper. Is that a mint?

Ramsey and the PSG striker were involved in a flashpoint shortly before the half time whistle at the Emirates Stadium, with Cavani appearing to make contact with the Welshman's face .

The Gunners were outplayed for long spells at The Emirates in the first half but clawed their way back into the game when Olivier Giroud dispatched his penalty after Alexis Sanchez was fouled in the box.

This team plays a unique defense where they're going to trap and rotate. Some nights, it would not be enough. "We can accept losing if we can play that way; we don't want to lose, we want to win every game, but giving that type of effort every night we can accept that".
