METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees said he felt compelled to speak out against Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand during the national anthem and said Monday that it was "bothering me all day long."
The New Orleans Saints quarterback, who has long been a passionate supporter of the military, stressed that he has no issue with Kaepernick's desire to speak out against racial injustice. He just has an issue with the San Francisco 49ersquarterback's method of protest. Brees said the American flag is "sacred." 
"I disagree. I wholeheartedly disagree," Brees told ESPN. "Not that he wants to speak out about a very important issue. No, he can speak out about a very important issue. But there's plenty of other ways that you can do that in a peaceful manner that doesn't involve being disrespectful to the American flag.
"The great thing about this country is that we have the freedoms that allow you to speak out openly about any issue. So I'm not commenting on the issue itself because any person has the right to speak out on any issue they want. That's the great thing about being an American. But the American flag is what represents those freedoms. It represents the very freedom that Colin Kaepernick gets the opportunity to exercise by speaking out his opinion in a peaceful manner about that issue. …
"Like, it's an oxymoron that you're sitting down, disrespecting that flag that has given you the freedom to speak out."
