As I’ve said before and I’ll say again, you better get used to seeing stuff like this. Coaches and athletes are only going to get more vocal, and that’s not a bad thing.
America is hurting, in pain and desperately needs help. That’s just a fact. Any idiot who disagrees should just turn on a TV.

The country is seemingly at war with itself, and we need all the help we can get. Brown is one of the most powerful people in West Virginia and he attended a peaceful rally.

That should be applauded. He’s showing people how to protest the right way and he’s serving as an example for people around the state.
You don’t have to agree with every protest, but protesting peacefully is as American as it gets.
We’ll see who the next coach to step up is, but I’m confident Brown won’t be the last.
