Colin Kaepernick may not have improved enough on the field to win over NFL fans, but he seems to be making one adjustment off the field this season that should win a few more over.
Because Kaepernick has decided that he will end his protest of the national anthem and stand.
This according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter who reports:
“Kaepernick no longer wants the past method of protest to detract from the positive change that he believes has been created, per sources.
Kaepernick believes the amount of national discussion on social inequality — as well as support from other NFL and NBA players, women’s soccer and college and high school athletes nationwide — affirmed the message he was trying to deliver.”
As you recall, last season when Kaepernick opted to protest the national anthem many fans were calling him a horrible person.
But to his credit, his protest actually turned out to be the actions of a good person as he captured people’s attention to injustices that still went on in America.
And even better, they were distracted to what a terrible player he was on the field.
Oh, and the funny thing is he is saying this now as he opts out of his contract with the Niners. Most likely because he knows teams may not sign a below average QB who brings added distraction.
Yeah, he’s all about taking a stand until it stands in the way of him making money.
