ESPN has suspended Jemele Hill for two weeks for comments she made on Twitter, the latest in a string of issues between the SportsCenter anchor and the company.
Where do you stand on Jemele Hill suspension?
ESPN suspended Jemele Hill for two weeks after a second violation of the company's social media policy. The SportsCenter anchor tweeted that fans who were upset ought to boycott companies that advertise with the Cowboys. This was in response to Jerry Jones' declaration that his players must stand for the National Anthem (which Jimmy has a good piece on, by the way). Michael McCann breaks down the legal aspects of the case and how Connecticut law could complicate things. Personally, I think ESPN has every right to suspend her. I agree with what she said but when you work for a company, you play by their rules. What do you think?

Lovely Lady of the Day
Casting for the 2018 SI Swimsuit issue has begun and Bo Koehler certainly deserves a spot (in my opinion, at least). She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
