Kaepernick suggests report he would stand during anthem is a lie

Kaepernick suggests report he would stand during anthem is a lie

His reversal came after CBS anchor James Brown asked him about kneeling.

ESPN's Howard Bryant said he'd heard from Kaepernick, who denied speaking with anyone about his plans for a possible return to the NFL. Moreover, he has said all proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity. "I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem", Pence said on Twitter.

After reporter Jason La Canfora's statement to CBS Sports was widely reported, he tweeted Sunday afternoon that he had not spoken to Kaepernick about whether he would continue the protest but rather had "relayed" another report. In March, sources claimed Kaepernick would be willing to stop kneeling for the upcoming football season.

"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations", La Canfora said in another tweet.

A spokesperson for CBS sports referred CNNMoney to those tweets.

Many news outlets that published La Canfora's initial statement, including the Associated Press, later issued corrections. La Canfora summarized their conversation but the segment did not air any comments directly made by the player.

The dust-up even caught the attention of Kaepernick himself.

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on".

Soon after, the Know Your Rights Campaign, a youth campaign fully funded by Colin Kaepernick, posted a note to social media written by Kaepernick's girlfriend, Nessa Diab, that said the report was "completely false".

The president told the crowd at the rally on September 22 that teams should fire players who kneel during the anthem. His free agency has sparked questions about whether it's connected to his decision to kneel during the anthem last season.
