NFL's statement about Colin might surprise you. The NFL made a statement in support of Colin's stand against Police brutality and innocent people of color being killed or murdered by Police. From the way it looked the NFL was not happy with Colin in the beginning. Many people boycotted Colin and no one in the NFL would sign this man. It seemed as though the powers that be had won and silenced Colin to a certain extent. But that's not what happened. It might have taken some time but it seems like corporate America is taking notice of his plight and have even joined him. But when a huge company like NIKE backs you up it gets people's attention. The NFL must have felt a little something because they made a public statement in support of Colin and what he is fighting against.
