National Football League should have suspended Kaepernick for kneeling

"If [Lurie] were to put out such a statement, I'd continue my demonstration, because my demonstration is in no way disrespectful to our flag, our country or our service members". So let's break this down. So much so that most people don't think twice about standing up, removing their caps and sometimes even singing along before the start of a game. I speak on the behalf of many in saying that it is time to grow up and learn how to respect the opinion of all. If that's what you're doing, it's an insult to our veterans because as somebody who deeply cares about our veterans and has tried to engage in things off the field that prop our veterans up, this has been a tough thing for me to grapple with at times.

Due to the prolonged duration of these protests that have lasted well over a year, gaining more momentum and speculation all the while, people seem to have forgotten what Kaepernick was originally fighting for. As the start of the regular season neared however, players' thoughts on the subject changed.

Trump told Fox News after a speech on tax reform in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, that he found Kaepernick's decision to protest police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem to be "terrible". Kaepernick mainly received support from current and former players as well as political figures. This form of protesting also refers towards the Black Panther movement and this form of protesting hasn't been commented on. He was bringing awareness towards police brutality and the racial inequality present in the USA and his protest was widely discussed. Just to remind you.

Despite prematurely declaring victory in his war of words with National Football League players Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump was not done harping on the issue. For initiating the #TakeAKnee protest, Kaepaernick was unable to find a team this season. Pence left after one series because he said he was offended that some of the 49ers players knelt during the anthem.

Ticket Requests Surpass 2M Mark for World Cup 2018
In Europe , the eight best runners-up from the qualifying stages, including Ireland , will go into next Monday's play-off draw . But such is the tight nature of the group, Burkina Faso , Cape Verde and South Africa all still have a chance.

"I'm grateful that Jeffrey Lurie not only did not express those kinds of feelings but has proactively been in the community and has reached out to try and hear about the issues that we are actually demonstrating to draw attention to", Jenkins said of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' promise to bench players who did not stand for the anthem. Players, coaches, and some owners protested by locking arms, kneeling and raising fists. Maybe it's as simple an answer as keeping teams in the locker rooms until after the anthem plays, as was the custom before 2009.

Trump tweeted a suggestion on September 24 that "NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country".

I'm not the biggest sports fan; in fact, I doubt I could name five National Football League teams off the top of my head. Players - including Kaepernick - have talked about their admiration of those who fight for this country, and their protest is not targeting them or what they have done to protect our country and our rights. But half of America has been protesting against him since his nomination, so what else is new. Although I don't particularly agree with kneeling during the anthem, and I absolutely do not agree with burning the American flag, banning these acts is simply unconstitutional. I haven't been approached and called out for it, but I guess it helps that so many Bay Area natives go to A's games. Innocent African-Americans still get shot by police with no logical explanation, while these officers typically face little to no consequences.
