He wrote:

Yes, the athletes are getting paid, but there is NO law requiring anyone to stand for the National Anthem.

Wow — a very strong and explicit statement by the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers today!!!

The team opted NOT to come out for the National Anthem, a very specific non-violent protest response to Donald Trump's inappropriate comments yesterday about sports stars taking a knee during the Anthem before games.

We sort of knew some type of major protests were coming today after Trump's insane and inappropriate comments over the past few days, but this one was particularly poignant and we're proud of the Steelers for exercising their Constitutional rights to protest non-violently!

DEE-FENSE! *clapclapclap* DEE-FENSE!

Aaron Rodgers may be a QB, but he's being anything but offensive with his comments about Colin Kaepernick.

While some have argued he isn't being punished for his stance but rather he just isn't good enough, many experts disagree — and Aaron is one of them.

Way to help send us back to 1949, Colin…

Prior to Tuesday, Colin Kaepernick was easily seen as the most progressive player in the entire NFL — but unfortunately, that all changed on election night.

Despite championing the Black Lives Matter movement for months, the San Francisco '49ers quarterback dropped the ball when it came to electing Hillary Clinton to the Presidency this week… because we're hearing he didn't vote at all!

Apparently, the football phenom was so disenfranchised with both candidates that he elected not to enact his Constitutional right to vote — and now Donald Trump is our President.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday, Colin defended his decision to ride the pine during the biggest moment in modern American history, saying:
