Kaepernick praises Miami Dolphins for kneeling during national anthem

President Trump tweeting about NFL before openers

Colin Kaepernick, the progenitor of the national anthem protests, used social media to thank the two players. They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. "Their courage will move the world forward!" "Love is at the root of our resistance".

Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn also protested during the anthem by raising his fist, according to The Associated Press.

However, NBC did show the anthem Thursday night (but not before Sunday night's Bears-Packers game), and no players kneeled or protested in other ways.

Kaepernick's message has taken on new momentum thanks to his Nike deal, and the advertising campaign will be featured prominently around National Football League broadcasts this season.

Kaepernick, who first kneeled during the U.S. national anthem in 2016 and has not played since January 2017, took to social media to hail the Dolphins duo for their bravery.

President Donald Trump has been a regular critic of NFL players demonstrating during the national anthem since the 2016 campaign. Since then, Kaepernick has not been signed by a team, but last week Nike unveiled a new ad campaign featuring the quarterback. At the same time, Reid has yet to draw the kudos, honors and Nike deal that have followed Kaepernick, who played in a Super Bowl and enjoyed a far higher profile than most other players.

CBS and Fox, which carried Sunday afternoon's games, have said they did not plan on televising the anthem.

Good job to Stills and Wilson for opting to exercise their rights as American citizens and non-violently protest injustice in any way they so choose!

Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same at San Francisco's game at Minnesota.

"People say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good", Kaepernick says in the Nike ad. The NFL and players union have yet to announce an anthem policy after the league initially ruled that teams could be fined if players knelt during the Star-Spangled Banner.
