NFL won't charge St Louis Ram's players after protest

The NFL has confirmed that the five St. Louis Rams players who made a “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture prior to their game on Sunday will not be fined. The gesture was a show of support for protesters in Ferguson and police had called for the NFL to discipline those involved. Meanwhile on the field the Miami Dolphins needed a win on Monday Night Football to keep one step ahead of their rivals in the hunt for a playoff spot. And thanks to a fourth quarter comeback against a run heavy New York Jets they managed just that, winning 16-13. Over to the NBA and the Philadelphia 76ers moved closer to an unwanted league record after losing to the Spurs last night. Their 17 straight losses to open a season is just one behind the 2009-10 Nets. And finally in the NHL the Tampa Bay Lightning remain top of the Eastern Conference after a 6-3 win against the New York Rangers.
