World news – The Saints delete the tweet from Drew Brees wearing the # SAYHERNAME « shirt amid an apparent backlash


The New Orleans Saints Twitter account posted a picture of quarterback Drew Brees, who warmed up with a t-shirt that said « #SAYHERNAME » on Sunday.

The account added another tweet, explaining the meaning of « #SAYHERNAME, » a social media campaign that began this summer after the fatal police shots of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky.

The second tweet stated that the shirt is about that To “amplify the voices and experiences of black women,” and was accompanied by a photo of Security Malcolm Jenkins wearing the same shirt. Jenkins is a social justice advocate and co-founder of the Players Coalition.

The # SayHerName shirt is for the Saints Players Coalition initiative to enhance the voices and experiences of black women. Https://

Brees wore the shirt days after a President Donald Trump-inspired insurgent mob stormed the U.S. Capitol to undermine the polls and to confirm President-elect Joe Biden as Trump’s successor.

A woman named Ashli ​​Babbitt was shot dead during the attack while attempting to break into part of the Capitol known as the Speaker’s Lobby. She was part of the crowd.

Brees has worn the shirt multiple times this season, as have other Saints.

The Heat didn’t t enough players to field a team, which is good news for the Celtics who barely have enough players to field a team.

Deshaun Watson is reportedly unhappy with the way the Texans hired their new GM.

Connor McDavid knows what it looks like to some.
Millionaire hockey players traveling from province to province to play games when everyone else is told not to do anything like the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic that is wreaking personal and financial havoc from coast to coast.
« These are unprecedented times, » said McDavid. « We’re not blind to understanding that we’re very happy to come to work to play the game we love. »
However, the captain of the Edmonton Oilers – the superstar of the sport’s superstars – also wants critics to understand that, among other things, the NHL is trying to bring some normality to the increasingly dark winter of 2021.
« People are stuck at home and need something to do, » said McDavid. « We’ll be playing every other day for the next four or five months.
« We’re not just putting our bodies at risk for each other, but also for the fans. »
The shortened 56-game season of the NHL, which includes a one-time northern division consisting of seven Canadian teams to avoid crossing the border – fans are not allowed to enter arenas from today’s perspective – begins on Wednesday. The players were tested every day during training camp, and it will stay that way for at least the first four weeks of the schedule.
And when teams take to the streets, they are limited to the hotel and arena. No restaurants or mingling with the general population allowed.
« It’s supposed to protect us, » said Bo Horvat, Vancouver Canucks captain. « It’s about protecting the people in the community. »
In contrast, a person could fly from Toronto to Edmonton or Winnipeg to Ottawa tomorrow and face no restrictions upon arrival.
« It’s not about apples, » said Marc Bergevin, general manager of Montreal Canadiens. « We are tested every day.
« I am aware that it is not easy for anyone, but it is what it is. »
Like a number of league executives, Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff took part in a number of conference calls as the NHL, the players’ association, and various levels of government worked out public health protocols acceptable to all parties.
« It’s not something that is taken lightly, » he said of playing in a pandemic. « Sport is about more than wins and losses. I think it’s about a mental psyche of a community, a mental psyche of a society.
« I think everyone is looking for something to make them feel good. »
But is it fair that professional athletes can play and make a living if the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise, the country suffers 17,000 deaths, businesses fail, and amateur sports – from small hockey to gymnastics – stay on hold?
« I understand there are people against it, » said Jason Spezza of the Toronto Maple Leafs Center. « We are all very aware that we are lucky enough to be able to continue working. »
« We don’t lose what’s going on outside of our four walls, » added Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving to the look. « We have taken all possible precautions to do this safely and responsibly during the time we are in. I understand that there will be differing views and I respect them.
« But I think, as a league, we’ve been thinking about everything. »
The NHL managed to restart its 2019-20 pandemic delayed season in August and September thanks to tightly controlled bubbles that resulted in zero positive tests in Toronto and Edmonton. While the upcoming campaign will involve many measures, it is not the same level of protection.
US-based teams have also banded together in newly formed divisions and, like the franchises north of the border, will only play against these clubs to reduce travel expenses and the chances of infection.
But there have already been cracks.
The Dallas Stars announced Friday that six players and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19 during camp while the Columbus Blue Jackets kept part of their squad off the ice out of « caution ». On Saturday, the Pittsburgh Penguins canceled training for the same reason.
So far, no members of Canadian teams have tested positive during the camp.
Leafs GM Kyle Dubas said the rules and protocols actually go beyond the players and include their own personal bubbles, which in turn should create team bubbles that, while not as safe as summer, are intended to further limit the risk of exposure.
« The existing protocols are not just limited to them, but also their families and where they can go and what they can do, » Dubas said. « As we near the end of it all, hopefully we can have fans in our building again and enjoy things as normally as possible in spring and summer. But first and foremost, it’s about everyone’s health and safety. »
Montreal winger Brendan Gallagher said playing not only lifts spirits, but it can also help put the economy in trouble.
« There are so many people who rely on these games, » he said. « It’s a game for us, but it’s a business for a lot of people. If you look at these provinces that are bleeding for money, they need these games.
« We’re in the entertainment business, but it’s a business and there is money to be made. Hopefully we can get through this and everyone can stay safe, but we have a job to do and we were asked to do it. We’re happy to do this to do.  »
And while part of society will no doubt oppose it, the Stanley Cup race is now upon us.
« Some people might not like the idea that we can travel and play, » said McDavid. « But we’re lucky enough to come to work and do it for the fans who are at home. »

NEW ORLEANS – Drew Brees will celebrate his 42nd birthday by preparing for a playoff game that will also see the one active NFL quarterback older than him.
Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 265 yards and linked up with Michael Thomas and Latavius ​​Murray for touchdowns. The New Orleans Saints defeated the Chicago Bears 21-9 in an NFC wildcard game on Sunday.
Alvin Kamara rushed for 99 yards and added a 3-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter after suspending the regular season finale and not training last week due to COVID-19 protocols.
The win for the Saints (13-4) and Brees, who will turn 42 on Friday, prepares a meeting with Tampa Bay and 43-year-old QB Tom Brady at the Superdome this coming weekend.
The Bears (8-9) performed poorly defensively, preventing the Saints from building more than one touchdown lead until Murray’s 6-yard catch-and-run score ended at 14-3 at the end of the third quarter.
That score came from a major bear mistake: Safety Eddie Jackson, who was hired for an apparent lightning bolt, jumped off the bears’ 13-yard line to fourth and third place.
Two games later, Brees was crawling to his right when he spotted Murray waving for the ball. Brees made it with a quick touch pass over rising linebacker Khalil Mack, and Murray sprinted straight to the goal line and dived through converging tacklers to reach the end zone.
Brees’ first touchdown pass came to Thomas in the first quarter after an 11-yard throw down the middle after being absent for three games to heal a nagging ankle injury. Thomas, the 2019 Offensive Player of the Year, missed nine games this season and hasn’t received a touchdown pass in Tennessee since December 22, 2019.
The Tashaun Gipson of the Bears scored the first points in Chicago and might have prevented the Saints from scoring in the same game. He put his hand on the ball as Taysom Hill tried to throw deep with a receiver that broke outside. The ball fluttered just a few meters forward and defender John Jenkins caught it and prepared Cairo Santos’ 36-yard field goal to make it 7-3.
But the Chicago offensive fought for most of the game against a defense that finished fourth in the NFL. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 19 of 29 passes for 199 yards and a minor TD pass for Jimmy Graham after time ran out. The bears were held in a hurry up to 48 meters.
Bear’s starting receiver Anthony Miller was ejected for pushing Saints defender C. J. Gardner-Johnson back after a failed third game early in the second half. Gardner-Johnson was also flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, but was not ejected. This was the second time this season that a Bears player had been eliminated after the whistle against Gardner-Johnson. During a regular season meeting, Bears receiver Javon Wims was ejected and suspended two games for hitting Gardner-Johnson.
Bears: Reserve Security DeAndre Houston-Carson was screened for a concussion in the second quarter. … Defender Sherrick McManus sustained a hamstring injury in the first half.
Saints: Cornerbacks Patrick Robinson and Latavius ​​Murray were both screened for hamstring injuries in the second half.
Bears: Start the off-season with uncertainty about the future of General Manager Ryan Pace and Head Coach Matt Nagy. The Bears have made the playoffs twice since Pace took office in 2015, both times under Nagy, who was hired in 2018. Chicago lost its playoff opener both times.
Saints: Hosts Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional playoffs round, the third meeting this season between the NFC South rivals and their 40-plus-star QBs. The Saints won double digits in every regular season matchup.
