Our thanks to Jeff for this. A rare but welcome example of men showing solidarity in the face of ideologically-driven assaults on colleagues. An extract:
In a show of unity, the entire Minnesota football team boycotted practice and met with media Thursday night to announce that they were boycotting all football activities effective immediately.
Minnesota announced Tuesday that 10 football players — including two starting defensive backs — were suspended indefinitely in relation to a September sexual assault investigation. The Hennepin (Minn.) County prosecutor declined to charge any player with a crime, but the university has since begun its own investigation into the case.
Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner, receiver Drew Wolitarsky and tight end Duke Anyanwu spoke to media on behalf of their teammates Thursday night to announce that the boycott was their way of protesting the suspensions of their 10 teammates, whom they believe have been unjustly punished.
