Professor Charles Grantham, director of the Center for Sport Management in the Stillman School of Business, was interviewed by Steven A. Smith regarding the NFL's anthem protests and how collective bargaining can help to address the concerns of the players, the owners and the league.
Grantham, who is the former Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association, published an essay in ESPN's The Undefeated entitled, "Unions had better start doing their jobs to protect NFL players' rights." Steven A. Smith referenced the article and asked Grantham to discuss at length what he had written, including his five point plan on "how and why a professional sports initiative can contribute to an action plan while influencing the long-term social justice change that the players seek."
