Dean Cain, better recognized as Superman in ‘Lois and Clark’ was an outspoken critic of Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest. And to him, it is not a settled issue.
Cain was recently asked by TMZ Sports if he was still upset about Kaeprnick refusing to stand for the flag, and he did not hold back:
Dean Cain is still upset about Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest — telling TMZ Sports, “I know a lot of people who fought and died for that flag. I would never disrespect it like that.”
We got Superman out in Malibu, and asked the ex-NFL player (it’s true, look it up) if he thinks Kaep will ever land a team, given that Seattle — where some thought he had his best shot — passed.
That’s when Cain opened up … saying he didn’t like the protest one bit — and it seems pretty obvious it changed his opinion of the QB.
He was also asked if his protests are hurting the fact that no one has signed Kaepernick. Cain said it played an impact, but ultimately someone in the NFL will overlook that if they think he can win them games. He then launched into a diatribe about how Kaepernick alienated fans:
“I didn’t like it. I didn’t like it all,” Cain said. “I respect the flag tremendously.”
He then issued a challenge. He said Kaepernick or anyone else who wants to protest the flag should travel the world to see how our rights compare to those of others.
