The President’s calls for fans to boycott NFL games until the league takes a stand on player protests. At a rally on Friday night, he said NFL owners should fire players who choose to kneel during the National Anthem. The debate over player protests flared up last

TV Review: ‘Trojan War’

TV Review: ‘Trojan War’
Comparing Pete Carroll’s championship-winning run as the coach of USC’s football program to a Hollywood production is an amusing idea (hey, it’s L.A., right?), but one that director Aaron Rahsaan Thomas overplays in this flawed yet illuminating Espn documentary. Built around the Trojans’ 2006 title showdown with Texas, “Trojan War” is a Hollywood tale — chronicling the team’s fall, rise and fall — well suited to the “30 for 30” franchise, exploring as it does how the thrill of victory in college football is often followed by the agony of Ncaa sanctions.

Carroll possessed a relatively undistinguished coaching resume when USC hired him in 2000, after a number of higher-profile candidates passed on the gig. Yet the new coach’s relentless positivity and embrace of show-business values not only wowed recruits but brought star power to the team, which collected Heisman Trophy wins for marquee stars (Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush
