    But the message has been lost in translation. What a lot of people are seeing as the message is a bunch of millionaires disrespecting the men and women who have fought and died for the country that the players are now enjoying this luxury in.

    Yes and no. I feel like people are wanting to ignore it and not believe it's true. So they rather just get mad at the kneeling. Putting it on a head band would not have got anymore than one day of attention and that's it. With this getting bigger and bigger and looking like it will stay. It's going to eventually be heard more.

    Regardless of color, all soldiers who fall come back wearing red, white, and blue.

    Kap who’s sitting on 15+ million is the face of unemployment in America.

    What is the message? Police brutality? How does kneeling for the flag change things?

    That social inequity. It may not change it but gets it more in the conversation.

    They are not making the message for themselves. But hey your all's reactions show probably why they are doing this then, if you can't see it.

    I see their million dollar Sunday protest. I donít see them protesting inner city violence, 50 miles away in the burbs.

    Former Bengal David Fulcher lives near me, he enjoys the same rights and privileges I do. He earned and continues to earn the American dream.

    He's got everyone talking about his message. All while doing so peacefully. That's what kneeling has done. It's up to everyone else to make the change, but there is no doubt he's gotten his message across.

    And I say that as someone that would never kneel.

    I think he has everyone talking, but I don't see anyone talking about his message. They are talking about is it disrespectful to the military/flag or is it within their rights. I haven't seen many, if any at all, about how to change things. I see more people discussing boycotting the NFL than what we need to do to change things.

    More people are talking about police brutality and racial injustice today than they were before Kap started kneeling. Even if they are the Clay Travis's of the world stating that they don't agree or see the need for Kap's message and that it's unfounded. They are still talking about it, thus his message is out there.

    I do think yesterday's display by many in the NFL turned "kneeling" away from Kap's message to something entirely different.

    Brandon Weeden signed before Kaep. Maybe if 20 more QB's go down this year he will be signed.

    Has nothing to do well ability or Weeden being better. Weeden signing supports that even more. The reason why he is not at least a backup on a team is because the national attention that he would bring even as a backup qb and no one wants that. It's really not that complicated.
