If he is, that's really fucked up, considering that there are players on teams who have committed actual crimes. Kaepernick did nothing wrong, and I doubt ticket sales are down so much as to warrant this treatment of him.

Don't underestimate the stupidity of the Trump supporter. I can see them them getting all worked up over Kaepernick kneeling during the National Anthem. Never mind their hero getting eight draft deferments, kneeling is so much worse.

Kaepernick is a black guy who doesn't know his place.

Trump knew he was destined for greater things than getting shipped off to 'nam.

He should have run a pitbull fighting operation instead.

Bought a Kaepernick jersey a few days ago. The Chrumpnecks down here are going to love me.

Re: National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

When I mentioned on a Cowboys blog that there was no point in playing the National Anthem before "local" sports/events (it's not like we don't know all the teams are American, this isn't the Olympics...), I almost got excommunicated.
