Shoplifting, suspensions, Apple Watches — oh, my!
There’s no talking about the craziness that was 2017 in sports without touching on a few scandals and controversies.
Most of the year’s biggest stories began on the gridiron. The NFL had plenty of extra eyes on it this season as players took knees during the national anthem to rebuke social injustices around the country and scathing statements about the league (and the NBA’s Stephen Curry) from President Donald Trump. Colin Kaepernick, who began the protest back in 2016, remained without a job in the NFL.
