Grievance all but shuts door on Kaepernick NFL return

As NFL owners prepared to meet on Oct. 17 to discuss recent league issues, a groundbreaking update on free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick may very easily have skyrocketed the meeting’s already paramount importance.

Banning Russia is not the answer to latest scandal

Discoveries by the International Olympic Council have put Russia in the negative spotlight once again, with allegations surfacing dating back to 2014 that reveal how Russia may have tampered with urine samples that would have otherwise failed anti-doping procedures. The penalties that are being speculated for the Russian federation involve as steep a penalty as banishment, something that is too harsh in my estimation. While the Sochi...

Women’s Volleyball digs deep to find early success

After last season’s 1-4 start for the Seton Hall women’s volleyball team, the Pirates have turned things around in impressive fashion, jumping out to a 4-2 record. While a variety of factors have contributed to the team’s success, a notable trend has been its results in contests that last longer than three sets. The Pirates are 3-1 in matches that are four sets or longer, including two five-set wins. In shorter matches the Pirates...

U.S. Soccer gap between pay and gender still a problem

In March 2016, a handful of notable members of the women’s national team filed a complaint against United States Soccer protesting the pay disparity between the men’s and women’s national teams. Despite the different pay structures organized by the players association of each team and each collective bargaining agreement, the discrepancy was evident in a number of financial notes and statistics.

Dowdy and Jones reflect on unique SHU tenures

Seniors Michael Dowdy Jr. and Madison Jones may not have played four years of basketball at Seton Hall, but the two will always value the time they spent as Pirates.

Opinion: Robots in the workplace pose a few problems

Seton Hall’s promising 90 percent employment rate for the Class of 2016 bodes well for future graduates, but it fails to consider the automation of a variety of industries. Robots taking jobs from people is a reality that is terrifying, especially for a student in the Class of 2019. Millennials like myself, who help pay for their own education, may no longer have the luxury of working the kind of jobs that machines can do better,...

Before long, the analytical efforts of Oakland general manager Billy Beane brought the small-market Athletics to a level of competitiveness traditionally held by big-market teams like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. The analytical details sought by Beane and his staff involved...

Shakena Richardson talks injuries, life after SHU

Playing professional basketball overseas brought Shakena Richardson many new experiences, including the first major injury of her career. Richardson, a former Seton Hall player who started for the 2015-16 women’s squad, had barely played a handful of games with Hoptrans-Sirenos Kaunas, a team in Lithuania’s LMKL league, before aggravating the injury to the point of a torn ligament in the late fall of 2016. “It happened in the summer,...
