Play­ers must take new ap­proach to protests

The Mercury News - - Opinion -

What started as a protest by one player (Colin Kaepernik), has now blos­somed into a full-scale player protest. I do not crit­i­cize them for protest­ing, and in fact I re­spect them for the idea; but, I think they have made their point. So, rather than kneel­ing dur­ing the an­them, which I feel is dis­re­spect­ful to our coun­try and its sym­bol, they can ac­com­plish more by chang­ing their tack. The player’s union has plenty of money from th­ese mil­lion­aires. So, put it to good use and take out ads dur­ing the games, put up ads at the games and/or form groups to go into the poor ar­eas and do com­mu­nity work. In­stead of caus­ing anger, they can ac­tu­ally do good.
