Charles Barkley supports Colin Kaepernick’s stance but says there are repercussions. (Brent N. Clarke/FilmMagic/Gary Melendez for ESPN/The Source)Charles Barkley is usually one to go against the grain of resistance, but when it comes to Colin Kaepernick’s continued free agency, he’s singing a different tune.“The dude is getting blackballed because he’s messing with [NFL owner’s] money,” Barkley said at the National Association of Black Journalists conference Thursday, Aug. 10, according to Marc J. Spears of “The Undefeated.”Kaepernick drew criticism last season when he sat down and later took a knee during the national anthem to protest Black oppression and, at the time, Barkley wanted more to be done.“Everybody’s engaged already,” Barkley told the Bleacher Report in October. Everybody’s talking about it and know about it. I’m just a bit more big on action. Once you get off your knee, like, ‘OK, what are you doing?’ Because football season is going to be over soon. And the question is: How long do you do it? When is it over?’”Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with the San Fransico 49ers in March, reportedly has decided he won’t protest this season, but he has yet to be signed to a new team. The quarterback has been keeping busy giving to charity and discovering his roots in recent months and hasn’t commented publicly on his circumstance.Barkley, however, has weighed in regularly on the matter.“I think what Colin has done has been awesome,” Barkley said during a call-in interview on “The Dan Patrick Show” Wednesday, Aug. 9. “I think his cause is terrific, but there are ramifications and he’s paying for those. For every action, there’s a reaction. You look at the greatest athlete of all time, Muhammad Ali. When he didn’t go in the draft, there were ramifications. He didn’t get to fight for three years. So, as noble as what Colin is doing — and it’s very noble — but there are consequences. … It’s very unfortunate, but when you take a stance on certain things, there is a price to pay. It’s that simple.”

Khaleda ZiaTwo BNP senior leaders met home minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday with their party’s demand for ensuring better treatment of their ailing chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia at the capital’s United Hospital.Talking to reporters after the meeting, BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan told reporters that they found the home minister positive about their demand.”Khaleda Zia is seriously sick in jail as she even can’t walk. So, we’ve requested the home minister to take immediate steps for her better treatment and proper medical tests,” he said.Mentioning that their chairperson has confidence in doctors and medical tests of the United Hospital, Nazrul said they told the home minister to take her to the private hospital.Asked what the home minister said, he said, “The home minister’s statements seem positive in this regard. He also called the IG (prisons) to join our meeting, and we discussed everything in front of him.”The BNP leader said Asaduzzaman Khan also gave his consent about ensuring proper treatment of Khaleda at a better place. “We’ll now wait to see what steps the IG (prisons) takes. We hope they will take steps for our leaders’ health check-up and treatment at the United Hospital.”Nazrul said their chairperson requires physiotherapy for some consecutive days for her knee pain. “But it’s not possible in jail… if any wrong physiotherapy is given by nurses in jail, it may seriously affect her health.”He hoped that the government will finalise its decision on Khaleda’s treatment by today (Sunday).The BNP leader said they urged the home minister to take steps so that Khaleda’s female relatives can meet her at the 1st floor in jail since she cannot come down to the ground floor due to her illness.”When the ailing persons see their relatives beside them, they feel better and become happy. “So, we’ve requested the Home Minister to take the matter into their consideration.”Nazrul also said they sought cooperation of the home minister so that their party can form a human chain in the city on 25 April and Sramik Dal can hold their scheduled rally on 1 May at Suhrawardy Udyan.Asked whether they talked about taking Khaleda abroad, an irritated Nazrul said there is no question of sending her abroad for treatment. “We’re saying to provide her with treatment at a [private] hospital here.”Earlier, Nazrul together with party vice chairman Hafizuddin Ahmed went to the home minister’s secretariat office around 11:30am and had over a half-an-hour meeting.BNP delegation met the home minister following some BNP leaders and Khaleda’s relatives were denied visiting her in jail respectively on Thursday and Friday.On 8 February, Khaleda was sent to Nazimuddin Road Old Central Jail after a special court sentenced her to five years’ rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.Amid the report of Khaleda’s illness, the government formed a medical team comprising four professors of Dhaka Medical College Hospital early this month.On 7 April, the BNP chief was taken to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University for some medical tests as per the prescription of the medical team.BNP, however, has been demanding that the government allow Khaleda to receive treatment by her personal physicians at the United Hospital instead of any public one.
In a letter dated Tuesday, Carver County District Court Judge Kevin Eide denied a request from three of Prince’s heirs to reconsider the artist’s estate’s recent agreement with Tidal, which was approved by the court in May. Attorneys for heirs Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson and John R. Nelson submitted a heavily redacted request earlier this month that, according to a response letter from the estate, requested reconsideration of that agreement on the basis of news reports that alleged Tidal had falsified its streaming numbers.Included in the deal is a week’s exclusive streaming rights for an album of unreleased material that will be co-curated by Jay-Z and is scheduled for release next year; the agreement also settled “previously unresolved legal matters” between the estate and Tidal, which had been ongoing in the wake of the confused state of the artist’s business affairs after his death from an accidental overdose in April 2016. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses. Rapunzel, Mulan, Ariel,Tiana, Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine all got some love from the Disney stars.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpJennifer Lopez Shares How She Became a Mogul04:350.5x1x1.25×1.5x2xLive00:0002:1502:15 Popular on Variety In the estate’s response, attorney Lora M. Friedemann argued that “The Nelsons fail to raise any issue that merits reconsideration,” stating, among other claims, that their request is “based on accusations about Tidal reported in one newspaper article in Norway over six weeks ago,” which claims that Tidal falsified its streaming numbers for high-profile releases including Kanye West’s “Life of Pablo” and Beyonce’s “Lemonade.” The Nelsons’ letter fails to acknowledge that Tidal has denied the allegations as ‘lies and falsehoods,’ and has stated that information ‘was stolen and manipulated.’ Unproven media reports do not constitute an ‘intervening legal development,’ or demonstrate that the Court’s Order was ‘palpably wrong in some respect.’“The Nelsons’ request is meritless and should be denied,” she concludes.The heirs’ attorney did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.In 2015, Prince struck a deal with Tidal that made it, at the time, the exclusive streaming partner for his catalog. After his death, most of his Warner catalog returned to all major streaming services in February of last year, but much of it remained either unavailable or only on Tidal while the two parties worked to settle the deal. That agreement was announced last month.
