Politics have always been in sports but athletes should do more

When asked during his playing days if he would comment on social and political issues, Michael Jordan famously said “republicans buy shoes too.” While Jordan is arguably one of the biggest athletes in US history, he’s always been relatively silent when it comes to giving his opinion on current topics. But sports now generate more money than ever and athletes like Serena Williams and LeBron James aren’t afraid of losing sponsors for standing up for causes they believe in.

After a couple stints with the Vikings and Seahawks, the Jaguars signed Walters in March of 2015 and even as a...

Recapping ‘Meet Me At The 50’ with Suzy Kolber

The Jaguars might not be the best performing team in the wins column but their recent women’s event “Meet Me At The 50” highlighted the proper angle female fans want to be marketed. Earlier this season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers launched a program called Red which featured meet n’ greets, football 101’s and female-centric items such as manicures and mimosas. While I defended the program because every fan enjoys their game day experience differently, it faced a lot of backlash from other female fans because it reeked of a sloppy-and-sexist plan hastily thrown together before the season started. For the...
