Potential Disaster on the Horizon Days before MLB All-Star Game

Just days before the MLB All-Star game, concession workers at Dodger Stadium have threatened to go on strike. In a news release Monday, it was announced that 99% of the employees were in favor of going on strike at any moment. Yikes.

A strike could pose a huge problem for Dodger Stadium as it is days away from its first All-Star Game in 42 years. Dodger Stadium employs nearly 1,500 food servers, bartenders, suite attendants, cooks and dishwashers. Unite Here Local 11, a union representing the concession workers, has not provided specifics on the workers’ demands but hopes to negotiate a fair new union contract.

Unite Here Local 11’s co-president, Susan Minato, wrote in a statement, “Stadium workers are proud of the role they play to bring fans the best game experience possible. They are the backbone of our tourism and sports industry, yet many struggle to stay housed and to make ends meet. They often live with economic uncertainty because the quality of jobs vary stadium to stadium. No worker should have to continue living like this.”

Minato makes a valid point. Without concession workers, the upcoming All-Star game weekend is going to be a disaster. Hopefully, Levy Restaurants, the Chicago-based company that employs the concession workers, will do what is right so the game can go on.

Retired WR had CTE Before Death; When will the NFL Properly Address this Issue?

On Tuesday, the family of legendary Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas released findings from a study conducted by the Boston University CTE Center.

Legendary Broncos Receiver Demaryius Thomas

The study concluded that researchers had diagnosed the four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver with Stage 2 chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Katina Smith, Thomas’ mother, began to familiarize herself with CTE and the symptoms patients deal with. She recognized her son’s changed behavior and how he isolated himself and wondered if he had CTE.

Smith’s statement to the press said,

“He was just so young, and it was horrible to see him struggle. His father and I hope all families learn the risks of playing football. We don’t want other parents to have to lose their children like we did.”

Stage 2 CTE is associated with progressive behavior and cognitive and mood abnormalities. Thomas’ family says he was struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and trouble with his memory in the years before his death.

Broncos WR, Courtland Sutton, pays tribute to his friend.

Dr. Ann McKee, chief of neuropathology for the VA Boston Healthcare System, director of the BU CTE Center and VA-BU-CLF/UNITE Brain Bank said,

“Like so many that have gone before, we found stage 2 CTE in the brain of Demaryius Thomas. The question I keep asking myself is ‘When will enough be enough?’ When will athletes, parents and the public at large stop ignoring the risks of American football and insist that the game be changed to reduce subconcussive hits?”

She has a point. I love football as much as the next guy but, when will enough be enough? We are losing guys that have given everything to play the game of football. We all love watching players like Thomas, but none of us want to lose players because of CTE. We have to keep the discussion on the forefront because CTE is not going away, and the repercussions players are dealing with including losing their lives has to end. Thomas shouldn’t be gone. Let’s take the opportunity to continue studies and learn what we can to improve player safety at all levels of football in the future.

The Donovan Mitchell Situation: What we know as of now

Mitchell, 25, has been a star since being drafted 13th overall in 2017. Mitchell has averaged 23.9 points, 4.5 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.3 steals throughout his five seasons with the Jazz.

These numbers explain why Mitchell is a prized asset. Past speculation about his future has also generated more interest into the topic. Here is a timeline of what has transpired, who is claiming what, and everything we know up to this point about the situation:

A huge Woj bomb, this helped fuel the speculation even more after the Gobert trade. Will the Jazz rebuild?
Almost all league executives seem to think Spida is on this way out.

Hoop Central is a very solid source, who is virtually never wrong. A must follow on twitter for basketball junkies.
I’m sure letting go of two of his closer friends wasn’t the best of ideas if they want to bring him back.
NBA Beat writer Andy Blarsen believes he may or may not be traded.
Valid point from a valid source.
Nobody really knows for sure.
