Colin Kaepernick's actions continue to have an effect around the NFL as a number players showed their support for his cause during the opening weekend of the season.
There were 'protests' from members of the Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots over the weekend, and they are showing no signs of slowing down.
With the NBA season approaching, there has been a suggestion that similar types of protests could be seen during the national anthem, although the basketball league has stricter rules on the protocol involving the 'Star-Spangled Banner'.
League MVP Stephen Curry has come out in support of the San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback but said he was not planning to protest during the anthem.
"I'll most likely stand," the Golden State Warriors point guard said. "Colin, if you follow the way he talks, the message he's trying to send with his act, he's not, from his mouth, disrespecting the veterans or the military. That's not his intention.
"I've been a part of certain conversations off the grid, finding different ways to make our community better, especially for African-Americans. That's not the way I'll do it. But I support him in his attempt to start the conversation or continue the conversation."
