“Colin Kaepernick says that, from now on, he will be standing when the national anthem is played before NFL games.
It’s beginning to look like he’ll be in civilian clothes and standing in front of his seat in a stadium or in front of the TV in his living room and not wearing an NFL team’s uniform and standing on the sideline.
Kaepernick has been a free agent for a few months now, and he hasn’t found a team that needs him to play quarterback.
Actually, there may be a few teams who need him to play quarterback because he might be better than the one they have. He’s definitely better than more than a few backup quarterbacks, including Landry Jones of the Steelers.
He just hasn’t found a team that wants him.
Why would he or anyone else be surprised by this?
Kaepernick made the decision to kneel during the playing of the national anthem beginning with San Francisco 49ers preseason games last Summer.
He said he did it because, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. This is bigger than football.”
Wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt at the time that he said it wasn’t a very good idea.”
What an asshole
As soon as there are repercussions to his actions he backs off
That’s how it works, huh?
When the going gets tough the tough give up?
You would have made a fine revolutionary son
