How is it pretty clear? Do you realize this started out with players sitting during the national anthem? Then some service members were upset (understandably) and talked with Colin Kaepernick. They asked him to please kneel instead because it still shows respect and ever since that's what it's been. I've even seen players kneel and put their hand over their heart. This is not something to get all up in arms about. People are so petty and scared nowadays, it's ridiculous.
