RE: In the NFL, it takes bravery to be respectful to our country
I never said he wasn't brave of him to follow his convictions. Apparently his disgust for this country prevented him from displaying respect and love for his country. He wanted everyone to know he doesn't respect this country because racism exists.

He did it while being paid millions by the owners and indirectly the fans. I think if they love and respect this country they would be right to tell him not to disrespect the country on their time.

Yes, it took guts for him to that while his piers weren't.
Peer pressure, as you say.

So imagine the guts it took for Kaepernick to do what he did, going against his piers.
And taking on national backlash and losing income from it.
All just for a cause.

It would be easier for each of them to just follow the crowd. But one risked a lot more.
