Kaepernick sends message to only remaining anthem kneelers

Report NFL won’t implement new national anthem policy this season allowing protests to continue

Before the Miami Dolphins' 27-20 win over Tennessee, star players Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson took a knee during the anthem with their teammate Robert Quinn raising a clenched fist.

Players protesting on the field during the national anthem has been a divisive topic over the past couple seasons with varied support and criticism.

The NFL recently passed a policy requiring players to stand at attention for the anthem or to stay in the locker room or in the tunnel under the stands.

"No one wants this added stress or added negativity or hatred coming toward them", he told the Times.

Now, the man who launched the wave of player protests in 2016 is weighing in.

Reid tweeted the same message that Kaepernick tweeted (above) regarding the players. "They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated", Kaepernick tweeted. Philadelphia Eagles players Michael Bennett and Jay Ajayi took a seat on the bench near the end of the anthem before Thursday's regular season opener, but there were no other visible protests.

Donald Trump Whips Up Base Blasting Nike Ad Featuring Colin Kaepernick
It's amusing watching a company that uses child slave labor overseas to make their products all of a sudden become humanitarians. Looks like Nike is "sacrificing everything" including sales after rolling out an ad featuring Anthem-kneeler Colin Kaepernick .

Kaepernick's message has taken on new momentum thanks to his Nike deal, and the advertising campaign will be featured prominently around National Football League broadcasts this season. Since then, Kaepernick has not been signed by a team, but last week Nike unveiled a new ad campaign featuring the quarterback. "Otherwise worse!" the President wrote.

Efforts to resolve the protest issue bogged down after the NFL Players Association balked at the policy overhaul released May 23 that required players to "stand and show respect for the flag and anthem" or face fines.

"Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad previous year comparison", Trump tweeted yesterday morning.

"I don't think that would be the best idea to try to get people to move on from it", he said.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has shown his support for players that knelt during the United States national anthem in week one of the 2018 NFL season.
