Colin Kaepernick to stand for national anthem upon NFL return

Colin Kaepernick to stand for national anthem upon NFL return”

Kaepernick re-tweeted the AP's correction of the claim he would stand and an ABC News story on the correction. "He has never discussed this with anyone".

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", Kaepernick tweeted with an attribution to Winston Churchill.

Jason La Canfora said in a series of tweets on Sunday that he was relaying previous reporting about Kaepernick and did not ask whether the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback would sit or stand during the anthem when he spoke about his interview with the player during a pregame show.

His reversal came after CBS anchor James Brown asked him about kneeling.

According to La Canfora, Kaepernick does not plan on kneeling for the anthem this season, as was reported early in the offseason by ESPN's Adam Schefter. He's going to donate all his jersey sales and he's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity.

He later tweeted that he's not sure what Kaepernick would do now. But Kaepernick has not been involved in the talks between players and National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell. This man is getting up at 4 a.m.

Despite a solid individual season in 2016, Kaepernick remains unsigned five weeks in the current year. A wave of public backlash ensued, with some fans saying that they would boycott.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say: 'Get that son of a b-- off the field right now, out, '" Trump said.

Colin Kaepernick has not said whether he would stand if given the chance to play again.

The president told the crowd at the rally on September 22 that teams should fire players who kneel during the anthem.
