    It's not his platform.

    It's his job.

    Try using your job to make an exceedingly public political statement, and let us know how long you stay employed.

    It's almost like some folks don't understand the difference between "personal speech" and "speech made while representing/working for a private employer".
    Then surely that's a matter for their employer? So far most of the team owners seem to be coming down on the side of respecting their right to peacefully protest.

    It's also completely nondisruptive. Simply sitting down or kneeling during the anthem is apparently all it takes to trigger conservatives.

    Unfortunately, they also all came down on the side of 'not giving Kaep a contract' despite the fact that he's better than a good third of the starting QBs in the league and damn near all of the backups.

    They may not be willing to fire players currently on their roster, but none of them were willing to sign him either. So it's a mixed bag.

    Which is, ofc, their right. They're running a business, and much of their fanbase is made up of mouthbreathers who think (black guys) kneeling during the anthem is tantamount to treason.

    That's fair, but maybe people should stop freaking out every time he does something that's beneath the decency of the office. The guy tweets all day. The decency of the office isn't what it was a year ago.

    I'd rather people confront what he's saying than continuing to freak out that he actually said things.

    I agree with Trevor Noah's take on this

    When the conversation turned to Kaepernick’s ongoing protests, Lahren explained that she just doesn’t believe that the quarterback kneeling during the national anthem is “the right way” for him to take a stand.

    “When people say that, I’m always fascinated,” Noah said. “What is the right way? So here is a black man in America who says I don’t know how to get a message across. If I march in the streets, people say I’m a thug. If I go out and I protest, people say that it’s a riot. If I bend down on one knee, then it’s not [the right way].

    “What is the right way?” Noah continued. “That is something that I’ve always wanted to know. What is the right way for a black person to get attention in America?”

    The silver lining out of all of this is that maybe Trump does so much damage to the 'decency of the office' (reminder that Obama vaporized babies at wedding parties and sold arms to the saudis, so much honor) that people wont be worshiping whoever sits in the oval office in the future. Not likely but would be nice.

    The following are NFL starting quarterbacks:

    Mike Glennon
    DeShone Kizer
    Trevor Siemian
    Jacoby Brisset
    Jared Goff
    Case Keenum
    Josh McCown
    Brian Hoyer

    Sticking to just the really fucking obvious ones, which of those do you think is better than Kaep? I'll give you McCown just because he's with the lolJets and I won't ask you to admit that he's worse. It's bad enough you're stuck with him at QB.

    So that's 1/4th.

    So are these:

    Blake Bortles
    Tyrod Taylor
    Alex Smith
    Kirk Cousins

    You might call those a toss-up, I wouldn't call any of them 'better.' Much as I'd like Taylor to be better than he is because he's an ex-Hokie, and Cousins to be better because he's with the 'Skins, I can't actually say that they are. Kaep got stuck playing for a monstrously shitty 49ers team after they ran Harbaugh out of town and everyone else good either retired or got arrested.

    My point is, Kaep isn't out because he's not good enough. A couple of teams have floated the idea of bringing him in and then changed their minds because their fans made noise.

    He's out because of the protests he started.

    I'm guessing you haven't actually watched Kap play the past few years.

    He's not the player he was in his early run.

    He's horrible, and I'd take almost all the guys on your list before him. The fact you list Kirk Cousins as worse than him is too much for my funny bone to bare, seriously.

    He's good enough to be a backup, sure, but he wanted starter+ money, which he isn't worth. No team wants a 20 million/year backup whose primary role is "protest leader".

    I'd love to hear if you think Tin Tebow is out of the league because of HIS politics too, lol.

    We'll have to disagree on this then. I think Kap got hosed by his team and coaching going to shit around him. He's been in talks with other teams this year (notably the Ravens, because flacco is an injury waiting to happen) and their justifications for not signing him haven't have much to do with skill.

    Tebow was never actually good in the first place.

    I used to be a footballer, but then I took a political statement to the knee.
