There is no ace in the NFL for political statements. Kaepernick disgraced the NFL last night by protesting his views which is not shared by all Americans.
This kind of hateful behavior is what divides the country. If standi g for the flag is part of the product and your job, then do it.
And if he doesn't lime it then he can find another job. I pay good money to support the NFL and these players if they are going to allow politics into the game, I am done with the NFL.
