Wow. "racist traitor"? Who is he betraying and how? "isn't that good at Football"? He might not be a Hall of Famer but he is (or certainly was) easily better than 1/3 (possibly more) of the starters in the league. He might not be a typical "hero", but the actions of others effectively turned him into a martyr.
Kaepernick made a statement with a silent, non-violent protest, calling for justice and was shredded by the white power structure for it. I've never had any interest in EA Sports games, but I give them significant credit for sticking their neck out on this. I hope they are rewarded for it.
