United States Green Beret and former NFL player Nate Boyer joined The Sports Bash to discuss why he told Colin Kaepernick to kneel during the national anthem back in 2016.

"Kneeling has never been seen as a disrespectful gesture," Boyer stated. "When we pray, we propose to our wives, when players are hurt on the field.  When I visit Arlington and visit the fallen brothers grave, I take a knee to show respect."

Here are some things discussed with Boyer:

  • Why he told Kaepernick to kneel?
  • Why he think things have chnaged now with the NFL?
  • Why kneeling?
  • What other members of the military think about his stance?
