Here's what happened to the number of NFL national anthem protesters after Trump criticized them
27 October, 2017, 00:58
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose protests last season during the national anthem to raise awareness about social justice and race-related issues set off a nationwide debate filled with acrimony, is expected to join a group of current and former players meeting next week with NFL owners in NY.
On Wednesday, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said he expects Kaepernick to once again be invited by the players, though he doesn't know if Kaepernick would attend the meeting.
Colin Kaepernickrecently filed a grievance against the NFL owners on October 15th, alleging they colluded to keep him out of the league.
But many NFL owners might be tired of signing Kaepernick after he drew worldwide attention for not standing during the national anthem.
Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League last week alleging he remains unsigned as a result of collusion by owners following his protests. Just as players have a right to protest at any venue and for any goal they choose, so, too, does the VFW post, he said.
The meeting will take place 16 days after Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League owners for collusion. It was not clear if the former quarterback would attend the meeting.
"The most important finding in the survey is that African-Americans are not taking part in protests, organizing meetings and fundraising activities related to BLM in their local environments in anywhere near the rate that most had assumed", he added. The news comes one day after Mohr reported that Kaepernick was meeting with publishers.
The league has been under pressure to change its guidelines by requiring players to stand for the anthem before all games.
Kaepernick's campaign began previous year, but reached a fever pitch when President Trump weighed in recently on Twitter.
