Well you're obviously wrong. Their employers are allowing them to protest. The owners don't have a problem with it. So why should you?
They have and they made a bad decision. Any other company would have given the employee the chance to end their protest or end their employment. So the principal remains that they are on company time and shouldn't be protesting. Thus fans and sponsors are responding. Ask Kapernick if he thinks his potential employers took note of his protesting.
