Runners are getting smarter and more comfortable running shoes are becoming more practical.From running shoes that keep you on the ground and help keep you comfortable, to shoes that make running a little less dangerous, and finally to shoes with a little more traction, running shoes have all the modern conveniences you'd expect.But the shoes you actually wear and wear them with are still the same...
By JAMES STONE, Associated PressFormer LSU defensive end Joe Schobert said Saturday that the only way for football programs to grow in the country is to embrace diversity.
Schobert, who played at LSU from 1997 to 2001, said there is an assumption that the game is exclusively white, male and male dominated.
He said he is not against men playing football.
“There’s no need for it,” he said.
I believe that men are equal in all respects.
If I want to be successful in the game, I have to be equal in every way that I can.
That is what I believe.
He is not alone.
Former LSU running back Anthony Jennings, who also played for LSU from 1996 to 2003, said he wants the NFL to stop playing games that exclude men.
Jennings said it is a shame that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t see the value in embracing diversity.
He added that while he believes the NFL is doing its best, he does not support the NFL playing games.
“I think it’s important that we embrace the diversity and embrace the men that are playing football,” Jennings said.
“That’s what we have to do.
That’s what football is.
Thats what our game is.”
