Colin Kaepernick jersey burned by angry San Francisco 49ers fan

With the start of the National Football League season less than two weeks away, one would assume talk would be on players, roster cuts and team potential right now.

Instead, the main focus of the sporting and wider world is on Colin Kaepernick, who decided to stop standing for the national anthem before the start of games.

The actions of the San Francisco 49ers quarterback have angered many conservatives across the United States, who consider the move disrespectful - no matter the reason for his silent protest. One fan, however, has taken it to the next level.

The man - who we are assuming is a Niners fan himself because of the Patrick Willis jersey he is wearing - really goes all for it. Check the video out below.

The national anthem that Kaepernick is protesting against? Check. Hand over heart and salute to show just how much of a good, patriotic American you are? Check. 

Lighting a jersey tied to a tree on fire with the use of lighter fluid in one of the biggest forest fire susceptible states in the entire nation is impeccably smart. As is the decision to have pretty much zero safety precautions in place.

Pray for that charred tree, ladies and gentlemen. And that you never cross this man.
