How Black NYPD Officers Really Feel About the Floyd Protesters

NEW YORK -- Edwin Raymond, a black lieutenant in the Police Department, heard racial insults -- "Sellout!" and "Uncle Tom!" -- rising above protesters' chants as he helped to control the crowds at recent demonstrations in Brooklyn against police brutality and racism.He said he understood the words were aimed at black officers like him. He tried not to take them personally, but the shouts were particularly painful, he said, because he has long been an outspoken critic of what he sees as racia...

NYT’s Publication Of Tom Cotton’s ‘Send In The Troops’ Op-Ed Sparks Swift Backlash

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) published a seething op-ed titled “Send in the Troops” in the New York Times on Wednesday, which was met with swift criticism from readers who rebuked the newspaper for providing the senator with such a platform. The piece applauds what many have called an appalling use of police force against law-abiding protesters. Cotton condemned a spirit of “lawlessness” on America’s streets, arguing that what began as peaceful protest has been co-opted by bad actors and devol...

NYPD Says Looters Are Stashing Bricks. Brooklyn Locals Say Otherwise

On Wednesday morning, New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot F. Shea tweeted a low-resolution video of an unidentified officer picking up blue plastic crates on a city street corner. The crates, which appeared to be filled with chunks of masonry, had apparently been left next to a garbage can near Avenue X and West 3rd Street in Gravesend, a neighborhood by the water on Brooklyn’s south end that’s been largely untouched by the protests elsewhere in the borough and the city."This is what ...

NYPD traps protestors on bridge for hours after curfew

Last night, police in New York city kettled hundreds of protestors on the Manhattan Bridge, preventing them from dispersing for hours, even after curfew fell. The New York Times reports that the protestors "found a way" around police blocking access to the Brooklyn end of the bridge, which seems an unlikely scenario, but nonetheless offers details on them being subsequently held there. As the curfew descended on Tuesday, hundreds of protesters made their way from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn ...

The New York Police Department is being criticized for how terribly they are handling the police protests currently taking place in honor of George Floyd.

Greiss Gave the Islanders All He Could

On July 1, 2015, with many big names being signed on the first day of free agency, the New York Islanders made a typical low-risk move by signing Thomas Greiss to a two-year contract extension. At the time, there were a couple of big-name free agents that the Islanders were unable to sign, but the addition of Greiss is one of the rare successful moves that general manager Garth Snow made that year, though his time with the Islanders seems to be finished.

Here’s how Tony Ferguson reacted to UFC 249 cancellation

Tony Ferguson was fired up talking about UFC 249 on Thursday. New opponent. New location. Weight on point. Preaching about his tight circle and his family. Motivated as always, coronavirus pandemic be damned. “Mental’s OK, not too bad. Opponent switch was something different, but I’ve been surrounding myself with the same people. You know that,” Ferguson said in a phone interview. “Nothing’s changed. Family’s good, man. Everything’s good.” It was a vintage Ferguson interview. He wasn’t afraid of...

Ranking the Islanders Jerseys

For the most part, when you think of the New York Islanders sweaters, you really only think of the blue home and white road sweaters that have been around since the 1972-73 season (minus the names on the back). Since then, not much has changed on those uniforms, and honestly, that’s a wonderful thing. The home and road uniforms are classic looking clean, traditional sweaters, and there is no need to change anything about them. Related: Buffalo Sabres Jersey History That being s...

NHL Attendance Leaves a Lot to Be Desired

When the Candian Press ran a story with the headline stating that NHL teams were trying to get fans to come to games instead of watching it on television, I couldn’t help but wonder if that were true or not. Why would the NHL in the last year of its national broadcast rights deal with NBC try and drive value away from what should be a record-setting deal for them? The underlying questions are: How has attendance faired in the NHL over the years? What’s the trend? Is there a reason for concer...
