Players Criticize W.N.B.A. For Fines Over Shirts Worn to Underscore Shootings

Victor Mather writes for The New York Times, “Players from the Liberty and the Indiana Fever spoke out in dismay Thursday after the W.N.B.A. fined them for wearing T-shirts intended to raise awareness in the aftermath of recent shootings by and of the police.

Three teams, the Liberty, the Fever and the Phoenix Mercury, had been fined $5,000 and each player involved had been fined $500 for wearing the shirts this month during warm-ups.”
