"In my conversation, I expressed to him it would be good if he talked to his coach [Chip Kelly] and talked to the team owner [CEO Jed York] to see if they could come to some understanding so they would be a united voice", Brown said. That tells you all you need to know about the strength of his character, in contrast to Trent "I care about this, but not as much as I care about the Seattle Seahawks" Dilfer. We asked them, since we live in a world of reboots and remakes, if there were any episodes they would like to remake and make better.
New England Patriots defensive lineman Chris Long stated Tuesday he supports the public stance of Colin Kaepernick and other members of the NFL community who have made a decision to protest the national anthem to take a stand against racial injustice.
"We already have two strikes against us already, so you might as well not kick yourself out of the game..." Kaepernick said in an interview with NFL.com that he would not stand and show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. "Because people don't like the truth". Now, one more voice is about to be added to the fray: South Park.
As Red Alert Politics noted, "The clip mocked the San Francisco 49ers quarterback for his refusal to stand during the national anthem, and created his version of our country's national theme song".
USA Today reports Kaepernick continued his protest on Monday when the National Football League kicked off their season against the Rams, and he was joined by his teammate Eric Reid, as well as Rams players Kenny Britt and Robert Quinn, who raised their fists. Many people dislike such protests, saying they have no place at a sporting event.
"I have no opinion on it because I'm not into it enough to even give an opinion", he said, noting that he had to have the whole situation explained to him and still doesn't fully grasp the motivations. I wouldn't argue with any veteran that felt this way, but not all veterans feel this way and some have shown support for Kaepernick over social media.
The protest has angered some fans, who see it as disrespectful to the nation while others see it as a welcome high-profile boost to the Black Lives Matter movement.
As you can see in the photo above, the signal caller now kneels during the playing of the national anthem. I need to call the cops.
