CLEVELAND -- Eleven Cleveland Browns players knelt in a circle during the national anthem prior to Monday's preseason game against the New York Giants.

While the group knelt behind the Cleveland bench in front of the Gatorade buckets, several other players stood nearby and put their hands on a kneeling teammate's shoulder in support.

Those who took a knee were tight end Seth DeValve, running backs Duke Johnson Jr. and Terrence Magee, safeties Jabrill Peppers and Calvin Pryor, cornerback Jamar Taylor, receivers Kenny Britt and Ricardo Louis, linebackers Chris Kirksey and Jamie Collins, and running back Isaiah Crowell (who was not in uniform).

I guess we now know which team Kaepernick is going to end up on mid-season.

72% of the players in the NFL are black. White supremacy?

So sad that we’ve had so many good men and women sacrifice so much for those losers.

I hope they all get injured and lose every dime they have before they go to prison.

By the way, I didn’t see it happen because I am BOYCOTTING THE NFL.

I’ll do my best to watch even less of the NFL. A few years ago I started boycotting ESPN because I could not stomach their coverage. Then Kaepernick, et. al., and I found myself watching only 3 NFL games last year on TV, and one in person (Packers at the Falcons - what an ugly, rude crowd at the Georgiadome.)

At some point it becomes hard to scale back. I don’t know where I fit in the NFL marketing plan., maybe I have fallen off their map and they don’t care that I am fading out.
