Chicago bar owner refusing to show NFL games to support Colin Kaepernick

Thomas Davis says he would welcome Colin Kaepernick as a teammate

You've probably seen it play out on your teams, or your children's teams.

LeSean McCoy said Thursday that Colin Kaepernick is "not good enough" as a football player to make it worth NFL teams having to deal with the "chaos" he would bring. While an overwhelming majority athletes and entertainers have come forward to stand with Kaepernick, it still hasn't resulted in him being signed to an National Football League team.

"Colin has to make up his mind whether he's truly an activist or whether he's a football player", Brown said."Football is commercial". He's an OK player, you know. Cooper Rush? He's the kind of QB you're trying to develop, but he'd be lost in an emergency.

"You have to understand there's intelligence that's involved, OK?"

Patriots gave Trump Super Bowl ring as thank you gift
Donald Trump isn't doing much winning, but that didn't stop Patriots owner Robert Kraft from treating him like a champion. Trump now joins Vladimir Putin in world leaders who have Patriots Super Bowl Championship rings.

Last year, Kaepernick's protests during the national anthem for the entire regular season sparked controversy and discussion that sent shockwaves through the league. You'll deal with that attention the media aspect of it, the good and the bad attention to it, compared to Kaepernick. More than a dozen Cleveland Browns kneeled during the playing of the national anthem before Monday night's game against the New York Giants.

Is Kaepernick going to come in and elevate the Jaguars to a championship contender? No. "But this is my country, and I'll work out the problems, but I'll do it in an intelligent manner", he said.

It's a lot more than just, 'He's not on the team because he doesn't want to stand for the national anthem.' That may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play. The star players can be late to practice and not get punished.

"[The protest] may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play". An NFL team offered him a job as a backup, but Kaepernick turned it down, even though his statistics were worse, or almost worse, than every other NFL starter's previous year. I don't think anybody can do the things he could do. I think maybe they can choose a better platform to state their beliefs. Others say he should have stood for the anthem. These issues include, but are not limited to: racial inequality, police brutality, criminal justice reform, immigration reform, gender pay equity and reproductive rights. I want to support my teammates today who wanted to take a knee. We don't need to drag one another down. "It's about the risk of what happens to the team concept when you sign a guy - a quarterback - who has put his personal agenda ahead of what we are all charged to do, which is put the team first".
