The Colin Kaepernick situation For those unaware recently during a preseason game during the singing of the National Anthem Colin refused to stand. When asked why he said Since then there has been quite the backlash from both his colleagues in the NFL to fans all over the country who have gone so far to buy his Jersey and burn it on Instagram. Others are defending Colin while condemning the people who are burning his jersey. I absolutely hate what he did and I don't buy for a second the reason he gave for doing it but at the same time he's well within his right as an American citizen to do this but at the same time it's well within the right of the people to show their displeasure any way they choose from boycotting the 49ers if he's playing to burning his jersey. What say all you guys about this?
