Colin Kaepernick Voted NFL's Most Disliked Player

By Robert Paul Reyes

"San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was voted the NFL`s most disliked player, according to a recent poll conducted by E-Poll Marketing Research."

Sports Illustrated

Kaepernick isn`t despised because of his poor play on the field, but due to his anti-flag antics on the sidelines.

We expect a quarterback to entertain us by throwing touchdowns, and not to infuriate us by taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem. 

Sports stars are free to exercise their First Amendment rights and speak out on the controversial issues of the day, but they shouldn`t bring their personal politics into the playing field.

Kaepernick can speak out all he wants to against police brutality, but he shouldn`t make any political statements during a game. We attend sporting events to escape politics and controversy.
