Jim Brown on Colin Kaepernick: I Would Never Disrespect the National Anthem

Jim Brown wants Colin Kaepernick to know that he wants to support his cause and what he’s fighting for, but he would never do the things that he has done to bring attention to himself.

The NFL legend recently did an interview with The Post Game and made it clear that Kaepernick needs to decided what he wants to be, stating the following:

“I want to be in his corner, and I do think, ‘God bless him'” — but noting, “Colin has to make up his mind whether he’s truly an activist or he’s a football player.”

“Football is commercial. You have owners. You have fans. And you want to honor that if you’re making that kind of money.”

“I can’t be two things at once that contradict each other. If I sign for money, then the people I sign with, they have rules and regulations.”

As for the protest, Brown says … “I’m going to give you the real deal: I’m an American. I don’t desecrate my flag and my national anthem.”

“I’m not gonna do anything against the flag and national anthem. I’m going to work within those situations. But this is my country, and I’ll work out the problems, but I’ll do it in an intelligent manner.”

Keep in mind…
