an important legal brief aimed at securing federal protection against employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. That list does not include the NFL or any of its teams.Via Ernest Hooper of the Womens Peyton Barber Jersey , only two major American sports teams signed the “amicus” brief, a common device for parties who aren’t directly involved in a controversy to chime in with their support for one position or another. Those teams are baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays and San Francisco Giants.Other companies to sign the amicus brief supporting the extension of civil-rights protection to sexual orientation and gender identity include, per Hooper, Amazon, American Airlines, Bank of America, Ben & Jerry’s, Coca-Cola, Domino’s Pizza, Goldman Sachs, IBM, Microsoft William Gholston Jersey , Morgan Stanley, Nike, Starbucks, Viacom, the Walt Disney Co., and Xerox.“Signing the brief was not only the right thing to do, but is also best for our business,” Brian Auld, Rays president told Hooper. “We encourage other sports teams and organizations to support this protection for fans, employees and their families.”It’s not just the NFL and its teams that passed on signing the brief. No NBA teams and no NHL teams signed it, and most MLB teams also opted to stay out of it.Most employers resist any expansion of the list of exceptions to the traditional concept of employment at will. As the list grows, the freedom of employers to do what they want becomes reduced Womens Ronde Barber Jersey , more i’s need to be dotted and more t’s need to be crossed before employees can be terminated, and the risk of wrongful-discharge lawsuits increases.Still, some societal issues take precedence over the knee-jerk desire to protect corporate coffers. Plenty of major businesses clearly believe this is one of them. The NFL, along with most other sports leagues and teams, does not. After the Buccaneers made linebacker Devin White the fifth overall pick of this year’s draft, head coach Bruce Arians said he “couldn’t be more excited” about the prospect of plugging the rookie in at middle linebacker.White’s acclimation to life in Tampa hasn’t done anything to temper Arians’ excitement. The team has moved into the organized team activity phase of the offseason and White has stepped right into the role of defensive leader that the team had in mind.“Devin’s not shy. That’s what we like about him,” Arians said, via Jenna Laine of “He jumped out, [learned] the defense quickly for today’s installation and wasn’t bashful about calling the defense and getting everybody lined up.”Arians wasn’t the only one taking note of White’s willingness to jump right into the middle of the fray. Linebacker Lavonte David called it “really amazing to see” a rookie being the voice of the defense and called the former LSU star “more than ready” to contribute right off the bat. Barring any injury, White will be front and center in Tampa come September.
