It's always nice when idiots who never put on a uniform and truly served their country have more freedom to stomp on the flag and put down the country they live in, and those who did put on a uniform and serve are expected to just sit back, shut their mouths, and watch it happen without expressing their opinion as it might offend someone.

All of these Kaepernick, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Stedman Bailey hope none of them ever amount to anything. Hey Colin if its so bad leave the country. You could be a star on Madden but in real life your pathetic as a player and human.

He believe what the wants to believe.

Rumor is that Lebron James will do the same when the season starts.

Matter of fact a lot of black players are planning on doing this.

If Colin doesn't like the USA, he can go to Mexico and see how he likes it there...same goes to all other athletes.

Leave or stay and try to help fix it. You may not like what he did (and so do I), but guess what? We are talking about the issue. That's how you fix things. Discuss them (with an open mind). Ignore them or "go to Mexico" doesn't help things.

I guess the police ruined Colin's career. If Lebron does it just one more reason not to like him. Maybe when the clowns need the police they can call each other and not the police. Then officers can live longer and help the ones that want it.

Most of them haven't amounted to anything. What's even better is you see none of them trying to solve any issues. Has Carmelo ever addressed his appearance in a "Stop Snitching" video? Yet, he has no problem blabbing on and on at the ESPY's
We all know the bigger issue here and the guys won't say a damn thing about it.

Edit: I will say Lebron gives a ton back to his community and has stayed away from the bad crowd, but the majority of athletes can't do the same.

What a d bag. I'd hate to have a collection of his cards. Can't stand people who act like this. Get rid of him Chip.

So people think his actions will change things? Interesting. Is he doing anything else in his free time as well?

my only concern and question..as has been presented is..why now?

i know and understand he didnt PLAY in the first 2 games, but he was there on the field for them right?

what did he do for those games?

again..as someone else pointed out..seems like just because hes on the outs with the team, hes doing it for attention and the wrong reasons

I had to look that up so I didn't say something that wasn't true. He does do a lot of work with Camp Taylor, a group that supports kids with heart defects. Apparently he lost two siblings to heart defects. But, he does nothing to support the stopping of the "oppression" of black people.

all because his a** was gonna get cut and now he got in front of that and put the 49'ers between a rock and a hard place either way, he will never start again. there's a time and a place, and that ain't it. Is kaepernick even black? I'm a white American with german heritage, and I look as black as he does in the summer. if he had been big in the movement up til now, I wouldn't be so critical, but this was his last grasp at trying to stay in the league.
