Rams Protest Michael Brown Ruling Before Game With Raiders
Not sure what Roger Goodell is going to make of this, but anything that makes his life more complicated is fine with me. Five members of the St. Louis Rams staged a protest of the Ferguson grand jury decision by raising their arms in the "Don't shoot" gesture.

The Rams also did it following a TD in their 52-0 (yep) win over the Raiders in St. Louis.
Wide receivers Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt came out together first, with the move obscured by a smoke machine in the upper reaches of the stadium.
Stedman Bailey, Jared Cook and Chris Givens - all of whom are black - then came out and stood together with arms raised
There were also about 50 protesters outside if the stadium.

I'm old enough the Rams protest immediately reminded me of the scene at the 1968 Olympics. Will cause as big a freak? pic.twitter.com/qGI9JQMIjp
