Buffalo fans target Kaepernick for national anthem protest

Vendors are selling shirts outside of the Buffalo Bills' stadium that focus exclusively on 49ers' QB Colin Kaepernick.

He got off the 49ers bus wearing a T-shirt with a picture of Muhammad Ali.

McCoy said the gesture is not a direct response to Kaepernick's protests, but it's still yet to be determined if the police officers will actually attend Sunday's game in Buffalo.

A day ahead of the game, Bills fans already had strong views on Kaepernick as they mingled around their tailgate locations near the stadium.

Prior to the game, T-shirts bearing Kaepernick's image with a target around it and other souvenirs mocking him for kneeling during the national anthem were sold in the parking lot of the city's New Era field, according to social media posts. It has sparked intense and mixed reactions from the public.

The Bills meanwhile look to have hit another gear after taking down the Patriots two weeks ago at Gillette Stadium, and the Los Angeles Rams last weekend on the west coast, and now they return home to Orchard Park in front of Bills Mafia for a 1:00 PM start.

"I think the best thing about that is that we live in a country that we're allowed to really do whatever we want", Wright said, "without circumstances that are going to be harmful for us".

Exporters have also gained, as a fall in sterling makes their goods cheaper for foreign buyers and increases their profits. Across Europe, the French Cac 40 and German Dax closed lower, dropping 0.6% and 0.4%, respectively.

Kaepernick confirmed there have been discussions with the team about restructuring his six-year contract extension, but he said he feels "no pressure" to get the deal done before Sunday's game. "Obviously, I think he has the skill set and the talent".

"My take on it is that the things that the cops are doing are definitely wrong".

Kaepernick responded to Ginsburg's remarks while speaking to the media.

There was other anti-Kaepernick merchandise at the game as well.

"We're doing it to show that there are injustices", Blue said, "and what Kaepernick is doing is patriotic".

Kaepernick has seen everyone from President Obama to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg drawn into the debate over his protest.

Buffalo is regarded to have a formidable defense and will more than likely give Kaepernick trouble.
