Colin Kaepernick Now Says He Will Stand For Anthem

SANTA CLARA, CA - AUGUST 26: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick #7 of the San Francisco 49ers looks on from the sidelines against the Green Bay Packers in the first half of their preseason football game at Levi's Stadium on August 26, 2016 in Santa Clara, California.

In 2016, NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick made national headlines when he refused to stand for the national anthem in order to protest against police brutality.

He was immediately ostracized and soon found himself out of a job and out of favor with many of his fans.

Now, he has changed his tune.

From Breitbart:

After refusing to stand for the national anthem in 2016, activist and quarterback Colin Kaepernick now plans to stand in 2017, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports

Per ESPN’s Schefter, Kaepernick is ending the protest because he does not want to “detract from the positive change that he believes has been created,” but the timing of the announcement makes it obvious that the quarterback wants to separate himself from the distraction and controversy.

An interesting development…

  1. He can stand in his living room. I hope he gets to cool his heels until he finally wakes up and gets a job selling used cars.

  2. Fuk him. I hope this will follow and everyone will remember what he and the others did. And hopefully the sponsors will not have a short memory

  3. He needs to go thru the Navy Seals program to realize what it takes to be a free American. As a Seahawk fan I do not want him on our team nor do I want to see him on the any football field.

  4. Before any team thinks about offering Kaepernick a position, they should first read this blind item, obviously about CK:
    FTA: ‘Someone in the executive offices of a professional sports team provided us with some insight:
    Don’t believe anything you read about why he’s doing this. He is lying lying lying!!! If anything, he has become MORE angry and MORE militant in his beliefs over the past year. That girlfriend of his has a lot to do with it. She really gets him riled up.’
