game against the New York

LONDON -- Police officer Shaun Weay didnt think twice about wearing a 49ers T-shirt to Wembley Stadium on Sunday -- even though San Francisco backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick has spoken out against police brutality by, among other actions, kneeling as the national anthem was played before games. C. J. Beathard 49ers Jersey .Weay, an officer in Yorkshire, acknowledged he couldnt support the views expressed by Kaepernick.Hes a role model for people, certainly in the States, and obviously, doing that, its just not positive, said Weay, who grew up watching the 49ers when Joe Montana and Steve Young led them to Super Bowls in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Stay out of it is the easiest thing to do. Keep your opinions. If you have your own opinion, thats fine, but keep it out of the public arena for everyone else to get involved.Weay made the roughly 200-mile trip from northern England with his daughter and her boyfriend, who wore Kaepernicks jersey, because Sunday was his day off.Were all people at the end of the day, and weve all got to keep people safe, Weay said. I may not agree with the way that (police in America have) dealt with things, but that was their call on the day. They made that decision. Theyre the ones that had that threat in front of them, and they dealt with it as they saw fit.Chris Stevens, from Lincolnshire, attended the game with several friends and also wore a Kaepernick jersey. He began paying attention to the NFL in 2012, when Kaepernick helped the 49ers get to the Super Bowl, and thus began to follow the team more closely.I would say I agree with him to a certain extent, that black lives matter, but Im more of a stance that all lives matter, said Stevens, who equated Kaepernicks stance with that of Muhammad Ali in the 1960s. But, I do agree that it does seem to be an issue with Americans.Colts cornerback Antonio Cromartie continued to show his support for the black community by kneeling and raising a fist during the singing of the national anthem. Cromartie, who began the gesture a week ago, stood up before God Save The Queen, the British national anthem, was sung.Wearing Kaepernicks jersey wasnt particularly unique in London, where the NFL is in its 10th year hosting regular-season games. Fans have typically shown up to such games supporting a variety of teams -- not just those playing in the game.Yet not everyone was aware of Kaepernicks stance. Eight sections away, six friends traveled from Stuttgart, Germany. Two of whom, Manuel Goertner and Simon Goertner, wore Kaepernick jerseys.When asked about the quarterbacks activism, the two said they had no idea Kaepernick had been instrumental in raising awareness of social issues.They were the leading team, and thats why they started to support the 49ers, especially Kaepernick, with the new way he was playing quarterback with all the running, said Steff Dreher, a friend who served as an interpreter. It was resonant with all the guys.---AP NFL website: and Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. Joe Williams Womens Jersey . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The San Antonio Spurs are suddenly looking like road warriors.After losing just one game at home last season, the Spurs have started this season 8-0 on the road after a 119-114 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night.Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 23 points and seven rebounds, and Danny Green had 16 points as the Spurs won their seventh straight game overall.Hornets coach Steve Clifford has a pretty good idea why the Spurs have been so tough to beat on the road.They have a guy who is an MVP candidate (in Leonard), Pau Gasol and Tony Parker who are probably Hall-of-Famers, Aldridge, who is a perennial All-Star and Danny Green who has been a starter on two championship teams. Plus they have a guy who is maybe the best coach of our time -- except for all that theyre just OK, Clifford said.In other words, as Clifford added, the Spurs have a pretty good recipe for success.San Antonios win didnt come without a fight, though.The teams entered the fourth quarter tied at 84 in a tightly contested game that included 28 lead changes in the first three quarters.Aldridge gave the Spurs the lead for good with 2:53 left on a pair of free throws. Green knocked down two crucial 3-point shots in the closing minutes and Parker made four free throws in the final 10.2 seconds to seal the win.Its a weird year, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Weve lost three in a row at home and last year we lost one the whole year. Now were undefeated on the road, so dont ask me. Thats why they call it a game because you never know whats going to happen.Added Green: The losing (at home) has helped us on the road. For some odd reason, I think we just have more focus on the road. Were coming together as a group and trusting each other.TIP-INSSpurs: Aldridge has scored in double digits in all 15 games this season. ... Leonard came into the game with the top spot in NBA history for best winning percentage in his first 300 starts (235-65). Reuben Foster Jersey. Hornets: Jeremy Lamb was active after missing the last 10 games with a hamstring injury. He played only six minutes. ... Cody Zeller missed his third straight game with a shoulder injury, but coach Steve Clifford said there is a chance he could return to action this week.WALKER JUST `NOT EVEN FAIRKemba Walker led the Hornets with 26 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Frank Kaminsky had 13 points and eight rebounds off the bench.Kembas really fast. Its not even fair, Popovich said.FOUL SHOOTINGIt may not garner much attention, but the Spurs are winning games with their foul shooting. They came into the league first in the NBA in free throw shooting percentage and made 18 of 20 against the Hornets, including the four clutch shots by Parker in the closing seconds to put the game away.JORDAN HONOREDHornets owner Michael Jordan tipped his cap to the crowd after the scoreboard showed a highlight of the former NBA star receiving the Presidential Medal of Honor from Barack Obama on Tuesday in Washington.GOOD INTENSITYDespite his teams third straight loss, Clifford was happy with his teams overall intensity.I just felt like were back to playing with a normal intensity level that youre going to have to play at to play well, Clifford said. That cant be something that comes and goes so much. I feel like until these last two games we have been playing with good energy, good focus.UP NEXTSpurs: San Antonio returns to action Friday night when they travel to face the Boston Celtics.Hornets: Charlotte will head to Madison Square Garden for a Friday night game against the New York Knicks.
