It all started in August 2016, when Colin Kaepernick raised eyebrows as he knelt during the National Anthem prior to a preseason game and claimed that he was trying to be seen as a revolutionary, but now, eyebrows are still raised, the former San Francisco 49er’s career is in jeopardy, and the tune that is as American as it gets has been placed in the middle of a divided country.
The what isn’t the problem. The how is the problem.
Kneeling for the National Anthem is absolutely disgusting. What Colin Kaepernick started is frustrating to the people who truly have pride in the United States of America and what it has stood for.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers spent the 2016 preseason ticking some off and making others proud by exercising his right as an American citizen.
Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the National Anthem has caused some reaction throughout the NFL. Some players have come out and duplicated and copied his actions, some players have confessed that they don’t agree with him but will support him for however long this goes on, and others have remained silent throughout this.
The mood surrounding the world of sports and the Denver Broncos’ organization has been very somber ever since news broke out that Peyton Manning was ready to begin the next chapter of his life. Even though he is among the best at his craft, people throughout the NFL fanbase are going to remember him for the way that he carried himself on and off the field.
Now that the NFL has announced that the people of Los Angeles are getting their Rams back, many people are beginning to wonder what else they have up their sleeves.
The Raiders and the Chargers are getting all of the attention right now, but, could somebody who is way out of this picture be getting all of the attention in the next few years?
There is only one person who you know.
The person in the bathroom mirror. Not Tom Brady. Not Will Smith. Not even Odell Beckham Jr.
For some reason, people tend to think that everybody with a natural talent has the best attitude and personality in the world. As we saw with Odell Beckham Jr., that isn’t always the case.
