13. Not your decision congress critter.

 

If owners don't like it, they can fire these guys at any time, then The NFLPA can go on strike if they don't like that, and so on. It's a lot more difficult to tell a bunch of highly skilled millionaires what to do without significantly hurting your business. They're the product. Some loser in Congress giving his hot take doesn't mean a damn thing.

Hell, this all may have blown over with Kaepernick looking like an eccentric outsider if Republican politicians could have kept their mouths shut. Trump calling them names, and demanding a boycott and firing probably is the best possible scenario for Kaepernick. He's getting more support since then than he ever did before.
