    That's fine....but do it on your own time/dime. I don't pay to watch politics,...when he plays football, he is playing for me. Go get a permit and have a parade or something to promote your cause.

    His beliefs are to be admired but he hardly accomplished bringing national attention to those beliefs because it was a failed visual expression. If you have to continue to explain or have others explain what your act is about, you need to try another form of expression to make your point. His main accomplishment is making a majority of people think he hates his country and the armed forces which was not his objective

    JG, a lot of that was because people just refused to see anything other than a petulant black man kneeling during the anthem. I prefer to listen to a person's reason for protest rather than judge on face value. For him to be called a POS is ridiculous. Dislike him all you want but the hatred and vitriol he got at that level scared me as a black man in this country.

    Behind you
    Everyone and I mean everyone has had their battles in life

    No one and I mean NO ONE gets an easy path

    Don't define yourself or others by race

    Work hard - do your best - try your hardest - help others - be kind -

    There is no magic race card that gets you a car, house , beautiful wife, kids and the life of your dreams.

    This thread should probably be shifted to PR by now, but man, the amount of hate this guy gets is insane, and the baffling lack of awareness about his actual message is just insane. I’ve disliked the guy for his on the field play ever since he played for Nevada, but the man is entitled to his free speech as much as any of us.

    And if you really “don’t want politics in your sports,” stop letting the NFL have months dedicated as a Salute to Service, stop trotting out service members in the middle of games, stop expecting athletes to be role models and contribute to society, stop having the anthem before each game.

    What you really mean when you say that is “I don’t want politics I don’t agree with in my sports.”

    And I wholeheartedly support the troops, anthem, and all that being part of the game, I just hate when people say they “don’t want” that stuff and don’t actually say what they mean.

    To his credit, Kaepernick got the national discussion rolling regarding the relationship between police and Black youth.
    To his discredit, he couldn't have handled the problem in a worse way for his employers.
    The NFL is built on being the All American patriotic sport of joy and wonder. Why would someone hire him? Plenty of people can come in and be a mediocre quarterback without enraging your customer base.

    There are many things for which I don't pay to watch on sports TV, including bad commentators, poor officiating, and lame mascots. But I don't ruminate over it and let it dissuade me from watching the game. I guess if it doesnt impact your daily operations, why worry about it?

    Hope the Cards stay away from the Clown show that is Kap.Not needed as a backup or for the circus he brings.Football needs to the the focus .Not to see if some rich jock is going protest the anthem.
