  • John Tlumacki/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Tom Brady has "respect" for the players who chose to take a knee during the national anthem before football games last season, the New England Patriots quarterback told Oprah Winfrey in an interview.Brady said the controversy surrounding the kneeling protests prompted "a lot of good healthy conversations ... in our locker room.""I respect why people are doing what they are doing. And they’re doing it for different reasons, and that’s okay. You know, you can do things for your reason. They can do things for their reason, and you have respect for that. But, I thought it was great," Brady told Winfrey.In the interview, a clip of which was released ahead of the full special this weekend, Brady talked about how the Patriots "chose to lock arms" as they walked out as a team after group discussions."We had meetings after practice talking about how we wanted to deal with that particular situation," he said."We support what people are going through," he said."I’ve been playing sports long enough [to know] everyone comes from something different, and I think showing respect for everybody, in a locker room, with a team of guys trying to go in the same direction —- you better have that empathy for everybody. That’s what sports are about," he said.

  • Mary Altaffer-Pool/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor broke his silence Thursday about allegedly sparking a melee in April in Brooklyn, New York, that left two foes injured - saying he "regrets" his actions in the out-of-Octagon altercation.The 29-year-old Irish cage brawler spoke following a brief hearing in Brooklyn Supreme Court, where a prosecutor told a judge that McGregor and another MMA fighter, Cian Cowley, were in the process of negotiating a plea deal on assault charges. "I regret my actions that lead me here today," the heavily tattooed McGregor told reporters as he left the courthouse. "I understand the seriousness of this matter and I am hopeful that it gets resolved soon."McGregor, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and lightweight titleholder, was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after being arrested on April 6. He allegedly attacked a bus full of fighters following a pre-fight press conference for what had been billed as a 13-bout UFC 223 match at the Barclays Center. Fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were injured by flying glass when McGregor threw a metal dolly at their bus in a backstage area of the Barclays Center, shattering a window. The attack was caught on video and also showed Cowley allegedly hurling a chair at the bus and McGregor also attempting to throw a metal barricade to the vehicle before he was stopped. Cowley, 25, was also charged with assault and criminal mischief.Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Janet Gleeson told a judge Thursday that the case against McGregor and Cowley has not been presented to a grand jury for possible indictment due to the plea negotiations.McGregor and Cowley were ordered to return to court on July 26. They both remain free on $50,000 bail each.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
