TanyaFree.com/Urban Views Weekly Poll

The idea of a time when you won’t have to get up early to punch a clock, not having to answer to anyone other than yourself is the classic vision of retirement. With people living longer, many have had to adjust their retirement plans, including working part time to reduce the strain on savings.     

How close are you to retirement? Do you know how much you need to retire?

Distraction?

Former NFL Coach and now NFL analyst Tony Dungy’s comments about Michael Sam, the openly gay linebacker drafted by the St. Louis Rams have been all the buzz in the media over the past few days. "I wouldn't have taken him," Dungy reportedly said of Sam.”Not because I don't believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn't want to deal with all of it. It's not going to be totally smooth ... things will happen." In an effort to clarify Dungy has now said "I do not believe Michael's sexual orientation will be a distraction to his teammates or his organization," in a statement released Tuesday. "I do, however, believe that the media attention that comes with it will be a distraction….”


My question this week really has nothing to do with homosexuality or Michael Sam but with fair and equal employment opportunity. The NFL Management and coaches have to deal with all types of “distractions” ranging from substance abuse to domestic violence seemingly on a daily basis. One columnist has even suggested that Dungy’s comments could increase viewership for NBC.


What’s Your Take? How is this distraction different? How do you feel about Dungee’s opinions? Should the NFL or NBC respond to these comments?

What's The Next Step?

President Barack Obama declared Friday that a surface-to-air missile shot down a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with almost 300 people aboard Thursday in Eastern Ukraine. The President noted that the rebels got weapons and training from Russia and had previously shot down a government aircraft, including a claimed strike of a fighter jet. Some have speculated that the strike could have been a Ukrainian military mistake or a Russian-assisted rebel attack.


What’s Your Take? Do you think Russian President Vladimir Putin will use his power to end the escalating violence in Ukraine? What steps if any should the US take in response to the escalating violence?
