WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump's criticism of protesting athletes (all times EDT): 10:50 p.m. Marc Anthony has some scathing words for Donald Trump, pleading with the president to forget about football and focus instead on hurricane-hammered Puerto Rico. Anthony tweeted on Monday night: "Mr. President shut the f--- up about NFL. Do something about our people in need in #PuertoRico. We are American Citizens too." The 49-year-old singer was born in New York, but his parents are from Puerto Rico, which was hit hard by Hurricane Maria. Trump did tweet about Puerto Rico later Monday night, but dwelled on the island's "billions of dollars" of debt to "Wall Street and the banks." Anthony is one of many entertainers with Puerto Rican roots trying to summon support. "Hamilton" star Lin-Manuel tweeted that he's "texting every famous Puerto Rican singer I know and several I don't."
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, so the speculation was that he would not allow his players to kneel during the national anthem. The Cowboys and their owner did kneel, though not during the anthem. Following a weekend of kneeling and protesting across the NFL, the Cowboys and their owner displayed their own version of unity Monday night, kneeling on the field before rising as a group before the playing of the national anthem.
A day later, there were signs that some around the NFL already were ready to move on from their anthem-related gestures prodded by President Donald Trump 's profane broadside against such actions. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, a two-time Super Bowl champion, said Monday — after a sleepless night — that he regretted that most of his team remained in the tunnel during "The Star-Spangled Banner" instead of appearing on the sideline before a 23-17 loss at Chicago on Sunday.
LeBron James is not backing down on his comments about President Donald Trump, and countless other players and coaches in the NBA made it clear at media days around the league Monday that they are equally fed up with what could perhaps be described as a pattern of actions from the White House that they would call divisive or worse. Politics were the storyline of the NBA on the first official business day of the season for most of the league's clubs. That was no surprise, given the events of a weekend that included Trump rescinding the champion Golden State Warriors' invitation to the White House, James calling the president a "bum" and stars like union president Chris Paul speaking out in frustration.
NEW YORK (AP) — Most television shows would love to have the "bad ratings!" that President Donald Trump tweeted the NFL is suffering from. But he's generally right that the TV audience size for professional football is off this year. The president tweeted over the weekend: "NFL attendance and ratings are WAY DOWN. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love country. League should back U.S."
Kyrie Irving smiled broadly Monday when pondering how athletes have uncovered their political ire. “I think the beautiful thing is that people are starting to wake up,” he said as the Celtics gathered for media day and the dawn of a new season.

Cleveland’s LeBron James and Golden State’s Steph Curry have both fired shots in a Twitter-fueled exchange with President Donald Trump, who won’t be visiting Warriors Nation anytime soon.
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Should an American Olympian be at the center of attention for the playing of the "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Pyeongchang Games next year, it would be for only one reason: He or she just won a gold medal. While NFL players have 16 or more chances to kneel, link arms or otherwise show signs of solidarity this season, an Olympic champion may get only one — a fact that complicates the question of whether to use that moment to make a statement.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is indulging in his favorite kind of drama — personal, aggressive, culturally volatile and entirely of his own making. During a week in which a crucial Senate health care vote, his tax plan, the North Korean nuclear threat and Puerto Rico's post-hurricane suffering vied for attention, Trump carried his feud with the NFL over players who kneel in protest into the new week with a fresh volley of tweets. "The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!" he said in one of his Monday tweets.
BOSTON (AP) — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is at odds with President Donald Trump on the issue of player protests of the national anthem, calling Trump's comments "just divisive." Brady tells Boston's WEEI-FM that he "certainly" disagrees with Trump's comment that NFL owners should fire any player who refuses to stand for the anthem.
