Report: NBA tweaks standings, will clarify roster rules

The NBA continues to fine tune the structure and rules it will follow when the season resumes July 31 at the Disney World campus in Orlando, Fla., including tweaks to the standings and potential roster changes. ESPN reported Saturday that the league will use win percentage -- rather than a measure of games relative to .500 -- to set the order of the standings, a clarification that is necessary because teams have played a different number of games thus far. Before the season paused in March, NB...

End qualified immunity, hold cops liable for rights abuses

Over the past two weeks, Americans have been unified in their anger about the senseless killing of George Floyd by the police. The death of Floyd, and the countless others who have had their lives disrupted or taken from them by the abusive actions of police officers must prompt reforms. At the federal level, now is an opportunity to finally fix the legal folly of qualified immunity. The Civil Rights Act of 1871 made clear that any state actor who violates the rights of an American “shall be lia...

Bipartisan resistance to reining in the surveillance state

Have you been on the Internet lately? Where did you go? What did you do there? If you think the answers to these questions are nobody’s business, be grateful that the House of Representatives didn’t pass a new reauthorization of the government’s power to conduct warrantless surveillance of Americans. March 15 was the expiration date for three Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act authorities: the foreign surveillance authorities known as Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act, the “lone wolf” authority ...

Whicker: Jockey Mike Smith makes some noise at quiet Santa Anita

Arrogate, 7, died on Tuesday, which was too early. He was born too early, too. This 2020 Triple Crown schedule would be Arrogate’s cup of oats. The Belmont Stakes on June 20, the Kentucky Derby on Labor Day weekend and the Preakness in October…that would have dovetailed with the thunder that Arrogate produced in late 2016 and early 2017. “I wish I had the words to describe what it felt like when he got rolling,” said Mike Smith, Arrogate’s pilot in those days, fighting the same empty feeling tha...

Analysis: NFL’s approach to protests reveals a week of change – at least in tone

Rams coach Sean McVay spoke with remarkable clarity this week about a topic that has left NFL tongues in a twist for years. It’s odd. When McVay talks with reporters about the safer subject of football, his language often ducks and weaves unpredictably as he works to not reveal too much, leaving media looking for quotable sentences flailing like safeties facing Cooper Kupp in the open field. But when he talked publicly for the first time Tuesday about the hard subject of football’s response to r...
