    He's well within his rights to do what he's doing, because free speech. Free speech only means you can't be prosecuted for voicing your opinion, though. It doesn't protect you from other repurcussions, though.

    He's being a shit teammate, though. If I was on the 49ers, I'd be furious at him. How the fuck am I supposed to concentrate on football if all anybody is asking me about is my quarterback's "protest". His pretty rapid decline in performance was already a shitshow, and this is just piling on to that.

    There's a wonderful irony in people bemoaning that he's disrespecting the war dead by exercising a freedom that they died for, seems a pretty fitting tribute to me.
