The unfairness that they’re concerned with involves those faced daily by people of color, at-risk youth and poverty-stricken Americans.
Long also faced a barrage of questions. He did speak, but avoided getting caught in a war of words with the president. Like Jenkins, Long understands that’s what feeds Trump and his supporters.

The event, which is hosted by punter Sam Martin and defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson, pitted the team’s offense against the defense in a grudge match and home run derby.
But more important than the bragging rights, proceeds from the event went toward the Sam Martin Foundation, which aims to enhance the lives of children with physical and mental disabilities and works with local animal welfare groups.
It’s twofold, Martin said of the importance of the event. For one, obviously, we raise a lot of money for my foundation, which helps support (what we do) throughout the year.

I coordinated with the detectives in Summit who were super helpful, DeOssie said. The city of Summit even came over to check the sewers near where we found the first ring, to no avail.
Police checked hotel security cameras that show DeOssie leaving through the front door with the rings but there is no footage from the parking lots, according to the report.
The white gold diamond rings have an estimated at $15,000 and $19,000, the report states. Both include DeOssie’s name and the year of the Super Bowl season.
DeOssie said he is in the process of getting a replacement ring through insurance.
