TAKING A KNEE: Literally…

When we decided, a few months ago, that we were going to call our longer form, analytical, pieces ‘Taking a Knee’, we didn’t envisage that it was going to turn out to be so appropriate a title. Richard O’Hagan tries to bring some perspective to a turbulent week in the NFL.
