Please excuse my insults here, but I think they are needed. When ball players with names like "Digestive Track" Kaepernick try to be political, I get pretty pissed off. And it is far better to be pissed off than pissed on. Get my point?
If I wanted a political opinion from a ball player, I'd ask one of my dogs. They can't talk, so I won't get an opinion from a ball player of any type. If you take political opinions from ball players, I have reservations about your ability to reason.
