Kaepernick is not courageous or intelligent. By disrespecting the flag of this country while on the clock drawing a lucrative salary as a football player he not only discredits whatever point he is trying to make, he is showing he regards himself as a pampered and entitled millionaire. All over this country people at work in the uniform of their employer act and behave within the guidelines of their job while on the clock. Oh, but Colin is allowed to make his own rules. Sure he entitled to say what he wants off the field- but when dressed in an NFL uniform, he should stick to football.

Colin needs to be fired and banned from the NFL. If his precedent is allowed to stand, how do they stop players from waving White Lives Matter towels or wearing Trump decals or sporting Hillary socks. Do we really want our athletes to bring all this political expression to the field of play, when the beauty of fandom is that people of all races, religions, classes, and political persuasions can root for one team?
