NFL Legend Jim Brown Breaks His Silence, Knocks Colin Kaepernick Out Cold

By

NFL Legend Jim Brown does not suffer fools and has made a career out of speaking the hard truths to whomever needs to hear them.

And this time he went straight for Colin Kaepernick and the rest of the lousy NFL players protesting the national anthem.

Fox News reports:

NFL legend Jim Brown said he disagrees with Colin Kaepernick’s method of protesting racial injustice.

The Hall of Fame running back told ThePostGame he wants to support Kaepernick, but cannot stand behind disrespecting the American flag and national anthem.

“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,” he said.

Brown said Kaepernick, who remains unsigned, must decide whether he wants to be an activist or a football player, emphasizing that the NFL is a business and each team’s owner has rules they want players to follow.

“Football is commercial. You have owners. You have fans. And you want to honor that if you’re making that kind of money,” said 81-year-old Brown.
