MILLION MAN MARCH TO INCLUDE FEW ATHLETES?
Published October 16, 1995
NFL players "seemed ambivalent, for the most part, about participating" in today's Million Man March in Washington, a demonstration of black unity organized by the Nation of Islam. The Broncos and Raiders will go on with tonight's Monday night game, although march organizers have asked players to make a gesture before the game. Bronco Shannon Sharpe: "I have no problem with the gestures if it's not going to cost me any money." Many NFL teams cited policies, which require a death or illness in the family to get out of practice. Redskins coach Norv Turner was open to adjusting schedules, but added, "No one's talked to me about it" (AP/PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 10/15).
