Please, No one needed Kepernick to bring awareness, it's all over the media. If he wanted to make a diffrence he could have found a more effective way to do it.

Such as?

No I am not wrong. Yelling by itself at someone is not illegal. It better go farther than that.

Verbal abuse (such as threats of physical harm, intimidating language, or degrading language)

But desecrating the flag will stop police brutality?

Would being accused of raping women stop police brutality?

Kaepernick is worth approximately $126 million. I suggest that if he doesn’t like America, he take his BLM Muslim bride and head to the Middle East.   

It’s scary how BLM and Muslim/Anti Israel events go hand and hand…….  It’s their deep seated resentment for all things American that they can’t stand.

How does a football wearing a pink ribbon stop breast cancer?
There is a positive and a negative way to make a point. It should be obvious to everyone which is which.

I bet you most don't even know what point he was trying to make.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

How about we keep this crap out of sporting events. We tune in for the game not this BS. Go on TV, radio, internet, rallys or a thousand other ways to get your message across.

Did anyone watch the Olympics? The pride these athletes from all walks of life showed for their country was amazing.

I agree, and if wasn't a has-been and delegated to holding a clipboard he wouldn't be making this stand. He is only doing it now because he has nothing to lose.

He has more to gain now actually. He can kvetch about being benched for political reasons rather than being washed up.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

When then cut him he will say it is because of this. Makes you wonder if he gives a damn about any cause except his own.

ETA: Talk about great minds.  :)

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

By the fact that it made the news and you and I are talking about it is proof that he successfully brought the problem to the forefront.
I agree he accomplished more than he ever dreamed he would of.

How does a football wearing a pink ribbon stop breast cancer?
I heard the NFL denied the Cowboys from wearing stickers for the cops that were killed in Dallas, pretty crazy.

He lost his starting job and probably was going to get released, now he can blame his release on something other than his on field performance.

That would open a can of worms.

I thought this was a great response, which addresses much of what has been discussed in this thread.

So in the same vein those BLM burning the flags are OK with what they are doing because its bringing the issue to the news? this guy is a failure and wanted to change the topic.
