There is a board in the locker room at the Flyers' practice facility that carries the Eastern Conference standings, updated every morning with a felt- tip marker. Each day, a number is written below the standings. The player who wears that number is responsible for the next day's update. This requires the player to purchase a newspaper on his way into practice that contains the late scores from the night before. If you know anything about pro athletes, you will understand that this is seen as a major hardship.

After three straight years of finishing third to Malvern Prep and Monsignor Bonner in the Eastern League's regular season standings, Haverford High coach Andy Rolli hopes this is the year that things will change for the better. But Rolli, admittedly, will have little to do with it. Except for his being behind the bench and giving out orders as he has for each of the last three years, Rolli thinks his players alone can create a successful season. "We'll just have to see how bad the kids want to do it," Rolli said.

The NCAA decided yesterday to reverse a decision it had made earlier this spring to enforce a little-known rule regarding doubleheaders that would have wiped games and statistics from the records of college baseball teams, primarily of Division II and III schools. The move will affect the standings and statistics of 10 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference baseball teams. The NCAA will allow doubleheaders scheduled against different opponents to count in the overall standings and statistics up until Monday, Chris McKnight, chairman of the NCAA baseball rules committee, said.

The 4x400-meter relay often is the most exciting event at track meets, but rarely the most dramatic. The event usually showcases four of a team's best runners, pitting each against one of sports' toughest tasks - a full lap of a 400-meter track at a full sprint. It's a distance short enough to require full speed, and long enough for runners to feel the burn. The "mile relay," as it's called, is run last at most meets. Fellow athletes, with their events behind them, and fans, their day of watching about over, have one last chance to stand along the track and cheer.

The result left New England (15-16) in last place in the division and needing a win in its final game, Saturday against Columbus, to make the playoffs.

When Carson Wentz fractured two ribs against Tampa Bay on a hit by a third-string linebacker trying to make the roster, the right side of the Eagles offensive line was being held down – quite literally, it turned out – by rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai. Every quarterback is only as good as his offensive line allows him to be, so it was welcome news for Wentz this week that right tackle Lane Johnson's expected suspension won't take effect by Sunday. Even if the B sample test corroborates the A sample in the next few days, Johnson would have five days to decide whether to appeal.

Mitchell Nathanson is a professor of law at Villanova University and author of "God Almighty Hisself: The Life and Legacy of Dick Allen" So Colin Kaepernick is not a leader. At least not according to the talking heads on television and radio, as well as no shortage of NFL front-office folks, who are confident that they know how to spot one. And Kaepernick, the quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, doesn't fit the mold. Not by a long shot. He'll divide the clubhouse, they proclaim; he'll bring unnecessary attention to himself and his cause - the oppression of people of color within the United States - at a time when he really should be focusing on more important things, such as getting his squad prepared to face the Rams in the season opener.

THE NFL allows the gang mentality of NFL players to demonstrate against police officers, but refused the Dallas Cowboys owner's request to honor police officers killed by radicals. Cowboys owner Jerry is a lot of things, but at least he has guts. He wanted to honor police officers in his community with a patch. The NFL said no. My question is . . . why? The national FOP and local FOP must tell the owners of NFL teams in their city how they feel about the NFL slapping police officers' families in their face.

THERE'S NOT a damn thing new about not standing up for the national anthem. If you grew up black in the United States, there was always someone around who would refuse to rise when that song was played or when asked to say the Pledge of Allegiance. It was no big deal. Those who remained firmly in their seats were the righteous folks. Conscientious objectors, if you will. As a kid, I respected them, because they had a hard time reconciling America's lofty ideals with how it treated people of African descent.

By Chris Coons and Charlie Dent In August 1990, President George H. W. Bush addressed the American people following Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. Explaining why he was sending U.S. troops to the Middle East, Bush made a clear case for American leadership in the world. "If history teaches us anything," he said, "it is that we must resist aggression or it will destroy our freedoms. " We recently returned from a bipartisan congressional trip to Morocco, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Estonia, and Iceland.

  Two questions: (1) What is next for Colin Kaepernick? (2) Does Kaepernick fully understand the ramifications of his actions? Let's take Question No. 2 first. The San Francisco 49ers' mercurial quarterback told highly respected writer Steve Wyche of the NFL Network that he was prepared for the intense backlash. Background: Kaepernick staged a one-man sit-out late Friday night when he refused to stand during the playing of the national anthem. Anyone who watches sports has seen the opposite ritual thousands of times before the start of a contest: Athlete focuses on the U.S. flag, stands at attention, usually with right hand placed over the heart.

Anthony Wright returned to the witness stand Friday for the first time since 1993 to again deny that he had anything to do with the 1991 rape and murder of a 77-year-old Nicetown woman. He also denied ever having confessed to the crime. Wright's testimony mirrored that he gave a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury as a 21-year-old. That jury did not believe him, and he was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. On Friday, Wright, now 44, again tried to convince a jury of his innocence in a retrial won after DNA testing of sperm found in Louise Talley's body proved Wright did not rape her. Wright's lawyer, Samuel W. Silver, got to the point: "Did you kill Mrs. Talley?"
