In 2015, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross founded a nonprofit called the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality. Now, he's hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump. On Wednesday, wide receiver Kenny Stills criticized Ross on Twitter. Professor Kenneth Shropshire, CEO of the Global Sport Institute at Arizona State University, applauds Stills — and explains why he's decided to resign from RISE's board.

Lindsay Gibbs of ThinkProgress believes the NCAA is in the wrong.

And the Philadelphia Phillies are in a legal dispute with Bonnie Erickson and Wayde Harrison, creators of the Phillie Phanatic mascot. Only A Game's Karen Given fills us in.
