But they do care that a large portion of cable subscribers don't approve of said beliefs to the point where they're willing to do something else instead of watching NFL, which hurts ad revenue and merch sales.

It's the opposite of Tebow, basically (except Kaep's talent as a QB isn't inversely proportional to Tim's).

I believe there were several 49ers games where the ratings dropped quite a bit because they didnt want to see kaeps pleas for attention.

It's possible, but polling seems to have indicated otherwise.

"Nearly one-third (32 percent) of adults say they're less likely to watch NFL game telecasts because of the Kaepernick-led player protests against racial injustice"

There are other random articles about it, it was brought up a few times during the season last year

Hopefully sooner rather than later.

It isn't all that hard to understand; after protesting the way he did, Kaep would essentially have to be a top 10 QB in order to gain a roster spot. It is what it is.

Oh and I totally believe that teams are enraged by Kaep's protest.
