Veteran and former NFL player Nate Boyer says media, fans are missing the point of player protests
2018-09-12
[AOL] In August of 2016, then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a stand by taking a seat.

Kaepernick chose to remain seated on the bench during the playing of the national anthem prior to his team's final preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. He later explained that his actions were done in protest of police brutality and social injustices people of color face in the United States. It wasn't the first time Kaepernick had made the move, but this time, people noticed.

Nate Boyer, a U.S. Army veteran and former NFL long snapper, was one of those people.

#7  Shocking that the left still doesn't understand that most Americans are proud of their country.

#2  I don't give a shit about the point. I don't want politics and SJW shit in my football. You continue to inject them and I will continue to not watch or go to games.

So go fuck yourself.

#1  Hmmmm....they certainly aren't protesting highly disproportionate amounts of crime in certain communities that tend to draw law enforcement attention and depress interest in risking resources and assets in commerce.
