The Super Bowl is right around the corner, but now the NFL will have a new cloud hanging over its head -- former Miami Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores' Class Action lawsuit. On the first day of Black History Month, Flores filed suit calling out the systemic racism embedded in the heart of the NFL. Lately, it seems racism and the NFL are more connected than Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. The way the league treated Colin Kaepernick, how the NFL insisted on using a racial slur for a team name for many years, and their use of "race norms" to justify lower payouts following its Traumatic Brain Injury case, is just the tip of the iceberg. The rest, Flores reveals in his suit.
We are led by the fans, for the fans.
We fight to make sure our favorite sports put the fans first.
We call out the leagues and owners when they're greedy and dishonest.
We protect our favorite players to keep the game safe and exciting.
We spend our hard-earned money on tickets and jerseys,
so we have the power to make sports better when we work together.
We cheer, we scream, we speak out—
because we are sports fans, and we have a voice.
