Ronnie Hill Cheap Rashaan Evans Jersey , the man who was involved in a 2017 car accident with Ezekiel Elliott, is suing the Dallas Cowboys running back for $1 million to cover medical costs stemming from the crash.According to NBC 5's聽Meredith Yeomans, the injuries occurred when Elliott ran a red light and crashed into the passenger's side of Hill's BMW 7 Series on Jan. 11, 2017.聽In Thursday's聽filing, Hill said he has "suffered, and continues to suffer serious, life-altering injuries and damages.""Zeke Elliott, to his credit, admitted at the scene that he ran the red light," Hill's attorney Authentic Vontaze Burfict Jersey , Quentin Brogdon, said. "Zeke Elliott, as far as we know, has not impeded in any way the agreed resolution or settlement of these legal claims.""Almost two years have now passed and there's been more than enough time and more than enough information provided for this claim to get resolved," Brogdon said.Brogdon added that his client filed the suit聽"only very reluctantly" because he considers himself a big Cowboys fan.聽Ellott's lawyer, Frank Salzano, provided a statement to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport saying he expects the running back's insurance company to "handle the matter appropriately."聽"The lawsuit鈥攕temming from a 2017 car accident鈥攊s between the plaintiff and Mr. Elliott's insurance company," Salzano said. "Mr. Elliott was only named personally because Texas is not a 'direct action state'鈥?which means that a claimant cannot file directly against the the insurance company but must first name the individual insured (Elliott) in order to trigger the insurance coverage.聽"That is exactly what occurred here. We expect Mr. Elliott's insurance provider to step in accordingly and handle the matter appropriately." Even as the expectations have been lowered to the most elementary form of respect, a simple acknowledgment of right and wrong, the NFL continues to show it is no better at standing up for equality than the Browns are at winning a football game Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey , no better than Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman is at throwing passes against the Chargers defense, and no better than the Saints defense is at holding a lead in the playoffs with 10 seconds left.In the process of trying to be fair to both sides on the subject of inequality, the NFL has consistently shown that it does not care about its black athletes, its black fans or humanity in general. It only aims to please the one person with more power than the shield鈥擳rump."I don't think people should be staying in the locker room, but still it's good," President Donald Trump told Fox News about the NFL's anthem policy. "You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn't be playing. You shouldn't be there. Maybe you shouldn't be in the country."This has never been about whether a player sits, or kneels, or raises his fist during the anthem, but the NFL and Trump have dragged this debate to the point where the initial message has been lost. People are now commenting on the similarities between the NFL and NBA anthem policies Minkah Fitzpatrick Youth Jersey , which both require the players to stand, while ignoring the fact that the NBA allows its owners, coaches and players to freely express themselves while the NFL muzzles its employees.In 2014, superstars like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant wore "I Can't Breathe" shirts, the final words said by Eric Garner as he was choked to death by an arresting police officer. James has continued to use his platform to speak out on social injustice.Kaepernick was not signed by a team last season鈥攊n a year which聽starting quarterbacks were plagued with injuries鈥攁nd has filed a grievance against the NFL for collusion.Just two months ago, as protesters marched in Sacramento following the fatal shooting of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man, by police, Kings owner Vivek Ranadive addressed the home crowd before a game and expressed his condolences to Clark's family. He described the shooting as a "horrific, horrific tragedy."Eric Reid Cheap Vita Vea Jersey , who joined alongside Kaepernick's protest in San Francisco by kneeling during the anthem over the last two seasons, remains unsigned. Reid has also filed a collusion grievance.Noah Graham/Getty ImagesBefore Game 5 of the NBA's Western Conference Finals on Thursday, Golden State coach Steve Kerr candidly expressed his opinion on the NFL's anthem policy."I think it's just typical of the NFL,"聽Kerr told reporters. "They're just playing off their fanbase, and they're just basically trying to use the anthem as fake patriotism, nationalism, scaring people. It's idiotic, but that's how the NFL has handled their business. And I'm proud to be in a league that understands patriotism in America is about free speech and about peacefully protesting. I think our leaders in the NBA understand that when an NFL player is kneeling, they were kneeling to protest police brutality, to protest racial inequality. They weren't disrespecting the flag or the military Billy Price Bengals Jersey , but our president decided to make it about that, and the NFL followed suit and pandered to their fanbase by creating this hysteria."In the NFL, Kerr's comments would be considered a distraction to his team attempting to win a championship. In the NBA, they're not.Kerr gets that racial inequality doesn't have a middle ground. Ranadive gets why black lives matter. The Bucks get how police brutality impacts their community.The NFL doesn't get it. It never has, and Wednesday was a reminder that it never will.Master Tesfatsion is a senior writer for聽B/R Mag.
