NFL Franchise Notes: Rams Expect Changes To Current, Throwback Uniforms
Published August 14, 2013
GET IT STRAIGHT: In Cleveland, Bud Shaw notes there has been a “groundswell of support this week” for Browns color analyst Bernie Kosar's “right to speak his mind” following critical comments about Rams players last week. However, this “is not a story about censorship of analysis.” The Browns “rightly consider it a professional courtesy to extend the same level of respectful commentary to a visiting team it would expect for its own players.” Kosar “fell way short of that.” Shaw: “No big deal. Not a fireable offense. Just no reason to celebrate him or his ‘strong’ stance” (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 8/14).
TAKE IT TO THE HOUSE: In Miami, Adam Beasley notes President Obama will welcome the undefeated ‘72 Dolphins to the White House on Tuesday for “the first ceremony honoring their historic season” and the team is “making every effort to ensure it’s well-attended.” Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross has “offered to pay the travel for any member of the ’72 [team] that wants to go.” There are “more than 40 living players and coaches, and nearly all have RSVP’d” (MIAMI HERALD, 8/14).
