Wochit News - Stan Verrett Defends Colin Kaepernick - Sportscenter host Stan Verrett is defending San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand during the national anthem. Kaepernick says he won't stand to honor the flag out of protest to the way people of color are treated in the U.S. On Sportscenter Monday, Verrett supported the decision, saying "These are real problems. People aren't just making this up, and they're trying to find ways to speak out about it,”
