How very cool!
Very cool, indeed. He grew up in a Habitat Home, so he's been there, done that.
Colin kaepernick is making good on his 1 million dollar pledge to various charities.
He isnt getting a paycheck.....
Didn't know that, so thanks for the info. Can't say I'm a bit surprised, though.
As so many are. There has been much in the local news about how badly Red Cross has done/is doing to help out.
The Harris County Judge (Houston is in that county) didn't trust Red Cross with the huge county evacuation site that is in a huge convention center. Basically said this on the local news channel.
Yeah, something like that.
WOW! I knew there had been a scandal, but didn't remember that. To bad he didn't end up in jail for that.
I know that I never see Wounded Warrior t-shirts like I used to. Sad. Our vets need every bit of support we can give them - certainly much more than whiny pro players of any sport.
Enjoyed the chat - have a nice evening and a great weekend!
I havent looked.
But....i imagine that giving to certain smaller charities would be overlooked.
Many players of varying sporting leagues give back to thier communities. Many come from very humble beginnings.
Yeah, that made me pretty dang mad they did that. Was glad he resigned.
I agree that many do. I simply totally disagree with him and the others who take/took a knee. That is a slap in the face to the countless men and women who have given everything - their knees and more for this country. Sure there are issues, but taking a knee during the National Anthem isn't the best way of dealing with them. As for me, if I was an owner, any employee/player of mine who took a knee would be immediately fired. There are no shortages of players who wouldn't love to have their jobs.
Taking a knee was a suggestion made by a war vet.
You have the right to be angry. They have the right to take a knee.
But who is making the loudest noise about it?
Yes. But as he has stated, or his mouthpieces have, those tweets are official presidential statements. To be archived and admired for generations to come!:)
I'm not angry, I simply don't agree with it. There is a time and place for everything, and the workplace isn't necessarily the time or place.
I'll have to take your word for it about a vet suggesting it, but there are a heck of a lot more vets who are totally against it.
Im a vet
I think i agree with what marky said on a different post.
The national anthem before each game? There is nothing patriotic about organized sporting events, other than international games like the olympics
He already has lots of money. Watson is just starting out and he's already donating.
Yes, he is. He seems to be a young man with a great deal of integrity and personal strength.
Agree. As I told Linnester, he appears to be a real stand up kind of young man with a lot of integrity. I just hope the powers that be will build the Houston offense around him instead of trying to mold him into an offense that doesn't fit. But, they go for days and weeks without asking me what I think.
