First of all let me emphasize that this is not any kind of a political statement, but rather a prediction.
LINEBREAKERS stays with topics and opinions related to sports, but in some indirect way i guess this can be considered sports related.

COLIN KAEPERNICK..... By now we all know that Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the playing of the National Anthem prior to a NFL game.  At the time we offered our opinion that Kaepernick, as an American citizen, has every right to protest something that he feels is an injustice taking place in our country.  We did question whether it was proper to display his protest at his place of employment (NFL stadium) while in uniform  (San Francisco 49 ers) since he his representing an organization at the time which may or may not share his views.  In other words, Kaepernick has the right to protest but should have used a different format to display his views.
We still stand by that opinion.

DONALD TRUMP.....Trump has now openly criticized Kaepernick,and the NFL, calling the NFL soft and suggesting that Kaepernick may be less than patriotic,  Trump further suggested that NFL teams should fire any player who display their support of Kaepernick's views and fans should walk out of any stadium when such protests are displayed.  We suggest that Trump's words have now turned this whole protest ordeal into something more political.

PREDICTION.....Even though most NFL teams have turned their backs on Kaepernick, I do not believe  Kaepernick is unpatriotic.  I do not believe NFL teams believe Kaepernick is  unpatriotic either, but consider him to be more of a distraction that may alienate many of their fans.
Now that Donald trump has spoken out publicly on this matter, our prediction is we will see many more players today taking the knee during the playing as the National Anthem.  What started out as one man's protest will now start to become something much bigger.
