I haven't heard of this guy before. I haven't followed football in years ('85 Bears really) but I can tell you one thing. If you would give this guy an hour of free airtime to express his views on the issue he was trying to call attention to, he wouldn't be able to say anything articulate. He doesn't even know what it is that he stood up, er I mean, sat down for. If he were intelligent and cared about the issue, he could have used his position of influence to carry his message, but he has no message, other than that he is arrogant and dumb.

So only those that can articulate to your standards should speak up? If you watched his interview please post what part you didn't understand and I will try and translate it for you.

Eh, stop trying to pick a fight. You already admitted upthread that you thought his actions were stupid too.

I said his actions were disrespectful. Basically saying he is a dumb ass sports jock is not the same. If I wanted to pick a fight I would have said knock of the racist comments.  :P

I don't think he's dumb because he's an athlete. That's not a reliable stereotype. Many athletes are intelligent, especially QBs. I think he's dumb for other reasons. I could elaborate if you're interested.

Here is what he said. I don't agree with it but it is clear what he is talking about.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

Just in case anyone didn't understand the last sentence. He is talking about what he believes are innocent blacks getting killed by cops. The cops then are put on paid leave while the situation is being investigated.

I had no problem understanding his message. Which part did you fail to comprehend?

He said "Stop torturing and killing us". Kapisch?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Troll alert :P

He said basically what you've been saying all thread. No one knows why he did it is what you've been saying, and Freddie pointed out if he had facts to back up his sentiment he should be on every news channel right know displaying how his views are justified. He would get any and every interview he wants right now.

You guys are claiming that you didn't understand him or that he didn't have facts. What you really mean is that you disagree with him. Be honest.

Anyone that's traveled extensively knows what an amazing nation this is.

There are better ways to protest than when we honor those who gave their lives for our freedom.

You can troll, we don't mind.

Nobody knows why he did it because they don't care why. If you listen to him you know exactly why he says he did it but here is my counter point made by a hot blonde.

The noobs may let you get away with flopping but you can't fool me. Play devil's advocate all you want, just don't expect me not to call a flip when I see it.

It takes a special type of troll to always speak to vague they can say whatever they want and act like they never said an opinion.
