Kaepernick, Teammate Kneel During National Anthem at San Diego Game Honoring Military

“I don’t like it,” said Navy veteran John Lair. “If he’s not for our country and the United States flag, get out of my country.”

“I won’t watch a 49er game from now on. On account of him,” Lair added.

Boomer Esiason, a CBS Sports football analyst and former NFL quarterback, said, “When you see people disrespecting the flag or the national anthem, it really rubs you the wrong way.”

"When there's significant change and I feel like the flag represents what it's supposed to represent in this country, I'll stand," said Kaepernick to reporters on Sunday.
