How'd you get to that conclusion?
In football, you kneel when you are WINNING.

It had nothing to do with football.
Kneeling is a symbol of respect, like kneeling in front of royalty.

so how would that be a protest at all? whatever.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Very simple.
Because he's not standing for the flag.

BS. He has no respect. If he did, he would do what is the norm and  excepted in this country, in the 21st century (namely stand and/or put his hand on his heart). Maybe in other countries or 200 years ago people kneel to show respect. But not here and not in 2016.
Its one thing for u to say u understand him, he has a right to protest, USA has an issue, etc but don't start saying he was showing respect.

You're getting lost in the details.
Just because someone is disrespectful, does not mean they won't ever do anything respectful or at least something that is symbolically respectful.
Live forever or die trying.

He realized the backlash he was getting for disrespecting the flag/military. His pig socks that then came out didn't help his cause.

Taking a knee in sports represents respect for the other players/team. Like running out the clock as not to run up the score or when a player gets injured at younger levels.

Why he did it, who knows.

The kneeling thing is stupid.
It's one thing to sit. Nu nu. So he's lazy. Do I stand up for every borchu? It's just a lazy thing. But imagine some dude kneeling at borchu. Now you went and made an EFFORT to look like a weirdo.

That's well within Tort's rights as a coach.
Also worth noting that you better not be playing for Team USA if you're gonna sit for the anthem.

I didn't read the article but my guess is that those poor folks were under so much pressure.

Not sure I agree, but yes, epic rant.
If you don't care why would you comment?
