It's not about kneeling. His hatred and disrespect

Kaepernick has stated many times his protest has nothing to do with the military.   It was an Army green beret veteran, Nate Boyer, who suggested he kneel as a sign of respect to veterans.  You're choosing to see interpret what Kaep does as hatred and disrespect to the military, because you want to.  This is really no different that people who were offended by civil war statues; they choose to be offended; they see the statues as symbols as hate and disrespect.  Both sides engage in political correctness; they are just oblivious to the fact they personally engage in it.

Those pig socks were distasteful in every sense, but in typical media fashion they showed it when they wanted to. He wore those at practices BEFORE he started kneeling. They could've called it out then, but it was used to add more fuel to a divisive fire. And they succeeded.

Then shame on the 49ers for allowing it.  Cops also protect him from crazy fans and keep people from running on the field and disrupting games.  The games where poor Kaep made millions while being so oppressed.

Some people get offended by brash language; some people get offended by socks. 

I like socks.  I wear them almost every day.  But I don't wear hate socks.  And that's what those were quite simply.

Well, many of you should absolutely despise Muhammad Ali.

lol, don't compare the two guys. Ali was and is a great human being.

also, Ali worked for himself. Kaep works for someone else and you cannot exercise 1A rights while at work unless your employer says it's okay, but then it must be okay for all employees.

And Tommie Smith and John Carlos during the awards ceremony in the Olympics. 

The nerve of those guys to get all uppity! :)

Seriously???!!! History has been kind to Ali's legacy, but he was far more critical and divisive than Kaep at his time. I'm going to leave this alone because this veers from the point of this forum. But it's really scary how people can kiss one pig, but not another because of the shade of the lipstick.

 

Oh, and that "pig" I'm using has a different meaning before I get labeled something because someone chooses to see what they want.

So he was a doucher before he started kneeling too? I didn't know that.

My problem with these things is usually the hypocrisy.  Like the soccer bitch that plays for our country and then wants to walk on our flag.  Makes no sense.

my main 2 points are... you don't have 1a rights *at* work and I don't want anything at NFL games except football. It's an escape for me. Keep your (the really bad word)ing mouth shut and play. Even if I agree with you, just football.

For the record, the NBA handled this well when this happened with them over 20 years ago. They shut it down when Chris Jackson was doing something similar.

2 things happened. The NBA handled it by suspending him for a game citing their policies. It didn't turn political at that stage, but unfortunately by time he turned 29 no team would sign him. Oh and he's considered one of the best shooters of all time. But it's believed his viewpoints got him blackballed.

Oh, I never said the NFL was wrong. I "try" to keep my opinion on this to myself because of my profession and because it's my opinion. I just get a little agitated when people go so extreme and clearly aren't aware of some history on similar topics.

I thought there would be some discussion of the actual workout or how he might fit with some NFL teams. Should have known it would degrade into a bunch of stupid posts about the past. 

 

I hated all the attention it got, blame our horrible media for that. His kneeling is only disrespectful to some, and there are many reports of veterans supporting him. They know they fought to defend our freedoms, not to stifle them.

Why can't you express your opinions openly? Are you being oppressed as well? You should kneel at work to show your displeasure.

Bottom line now is what has Kaep done positive in the last 3 years?  Nothing I have heard of, fill me in.  If he's not using all his money and resources to make the world a better place then he is just a joke.
