Colin Kaepernick is shopping a book

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v San Francisco 49ers

Trump's Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game after players from the opposing team, the 49ers, kneeled during the national anthem.

The issue was thrust back into the spotlight in September when President Donald Trump said National Football League owners should fire any "son of a b****" who doesn't respect the anthem and flag.

Kaepernick was invited to last week's gathering in NY by the players coalition but has not yet attended any of the recent meetings with the league.

"If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest-which the owners themselves made great theater imitating weeks ago-should not be punished and athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government".

Another Hollywood Figure Is Facing Dozens Of Sexual Harassment Claims
The piece explored the way he allegedly harassed young actresses, though it referred to the women as "pickupees", not victims. According to the women, Toback used his position in Hollywood to set up meetings that "quickly turned sexual".

"That was one of the things, they thought they were going to put a mandate in that you have to stand up and that you weren't allowed to kneel", he said.

His reps didn't get back to us. "And I think that would have gone against exactly what they said they were going to do".

Colin Kaepernick, who popularized the controversial gesture of kneeling during the US national anthem, will likely be invited to a meeting with the NFL to discuss social issues and protests, the league said on Wednesday. Goodell said those plans would be presented to owners at the meeting.

Colin Kaepernick did not attend the first meeting on national anthem protests. However, several more knelt during the anthem weeks ago after President Trump called any protesting National Football League player a "son of a b***h". Kapernick has led a group of several dozen other players to do the same.
