Doesn't matter what I think, what does matter he has the right to his opinion and to voice his concerns and opinions. Not be jailed or persecuted for voicing those things, everyone has right to agree or disagree with him.

i agree he has the right. but i think he's pretty hilarious actually. it kind of reminds me of the pop "stars" that do stupid stuff just to get in the news. i don't buy into his reasoning for several reasons.

1. his father (black) took off when he learned his mother (white) was pregnant.

2. he was adopted by a white family.

3. he makes millions more than this lily white girl will ever see. [icon_lol2.gif]

but yeah. he's had it rough. bless his poor down trodden heart.

You can't pick out the idiots by their colour but you sure can by their actions!

Again it does not matter what his take home pay is or is not, because every citizens of US has the right to voice his/her opinions in a peaceful manner.
Just like everyone has right to agree or disagree also in a peaceful manner.

If his opinion insights the use of violence, then that whole different thing.

that's all true, he does have the right! what's funny is this morning i saw a headline on facebook to an article, "You can call Colin Kaepernick anything, but don't call him Un-American" i was just about to go in there and give them both barrels for telling me what i could i say about it, and my internet went down. [icon_lol2.gif] when i got back on the headline was gone. so. tinfoil it is.

safe to say the amount of booooooooooos he will receive at every game this season will be --insane--- :up: , being the kind of man that he is, he will be standing up for the anthem in no time, imo

it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out. i actually had thought about the "being traded because of this" angle. i don' think many would buy it, but he could always use it.

Depending on how badly Tony Romo backup does, Dallas maybe looking for QB.

i read 6 to 10 weeks before Romo will be back. i think Dallas will want a good quarterback.

hey, speaking of that, i haven't heard anything about Johnny Manziel lately. he's probably available.
