Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let’s check your Friday headlines.

Tisch critical of President Trump

Giants co-owner Steve Tisch said this week that he hopes the president finds better things to do than worry about how whether or not NFL players protest during the national anthem.

“Hopefully he’ll have much more going on that he’s going have to deal with and should deal with and must deal with than worrying about what NFL players do,” Tisch told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday night at the premiere of The Equalizer 2 (Tisch is a producer of the film). “He has no understanding of why they take a knee or why they’re protesting. When the new season starts, I hope his priorities are not criticizing the NFL and telling owners what to do and what not to do.”
