Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores subtly slammed one of his own players on Tuesday when he played eight JAY-Z songs in a row at the team's practice. Yahoo! Sports notes that Flores' act of underhanded trolling was apparently intended for receiver Kenny Stills, who didn't like how JAY-Z had said about his new NFL partnership, "It's time to move past kneeling." Said Stills on Monday, "Talking about we're moving past kneeling like he ever protested...Choosing to speak for the people like he had spoken to the people...It didn't seem very informed." Flores' pro-Hova playlist reportedly included "99 Problems," "Show Me What You Got" and his RIhanna duet "Run This Town." According to reports, Stills knew the JAY-Z barrage was coming, although it's still unclear why the coach decided to play the tunes.
