Vote: Should Colin Kaepernick stand for the national anthem?

— -- Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit during the playing of the national anthem before San Francisco 49ers games has brought both praise and condemnation from around the league.

His former teammate Alex Boone called the decision "shameful."

Falcons lineman Ben Garland, a captain in the Air National Guard, said that while the anthem means a lot to him, he and his friends "fought for that freedom for [Kaepernick] to speak his mind."

Niners teammate Torrey Smith said he related to Kaepernick's message even if he didn't agree with the way he went about it.
